U.S. Treasuries suffer ahead of December industrial production, host of FOMC speeches

The U.S. Treasuries suffered on the last trading day of the week Friday, ahead of the country’s industrial production data for the month of December and FOMC members Williams and Harker’s speech, both scheduled for later today.

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasuries jumped nearly 2 basis points to 2.764 percent, the super-long 30-year bond yields rose 1 basis point to 3.087 percent and the yield on the short-term 2-year traded 2 basis points higher at 2.583 percent by 11:20GMT.

In the US, today will bring December’s industrial production report and the preliminary University of Michigan consumer sentiment survey for January. Manufacturing output looks set to be firm, reflecting the solid gain in employment and longer workweek in the sector already reported for that month.

Utility output, however, seems likely to restrict the gain in the overall headline IP figure. Meanwhile, consumer sentiment seems likely to have remained close to the average of the second half of 2018 (98.1) supported by strong jobs growth.

Finally, the Fed-speak will continue today as New York Fed President John Williams will give a talk on the economic outlook and monetary policy.         

Meanwhile, the S&P 500 Futures rose 0.29 percent to 2,642.88 by 11:25GMT, while at 11:00GMT, the FxWirePro's Hourly Dollar Strength Index remained neutral at -39.67 (a reading above +75 indicates a bullish trend, while that below -75 a bearish trend).
