TREASURIES-U.S. bonds hold gains after foreign investment data
NEW YORK, June 14
NEW YORK, June 14 (Reuters) - U.S. Treasuries prices clung to earlier gains on Friday after government data showed foreign investors reduced their holdings of Treasuries in April, suggesting less appetite for low-yielding sovereign bonds.
Overseas private investors and central banks on balance sold $54.5 billion of Treasuries in April, compared with $5.3 billion in net purchases in March.
Benchmark 10-year Treasuries notes traded 7/32 higher in price with a yield of 2.124 percent, down 2.5 basis points from late on Thursday.
