TREASURIES-Longer-dated prices add losses
NEW YORK Feb 5 (Reuters) - Prices of longer U.S. Treasury debt maturities added to earlier losses on Tuesday after a private report showed U.S. services industries continued to grow albeit at a slower pace in January, soothing some anxiety about an economic pullback in early 2013.
Longer-dated government bond prices briefly trimmed losses shortly after the Institute for Supply Management said its index on U.S. non-manufacturing slipped to 55.2 from 55.7 in December, matching analyst expectations.
The 30-year Treasury bond last traded 27/32 lower in price at 91-6/32 with a yield of 3.210 percent, up 4.8 basis points from late on Monday. It traded down as much as 1-1/32 with a yield of 3.219 percent as selling resumed.
