Treasuries End with Losses


Treasuries opened higher Friday, made new highs -- and then reversed course to trade lower.

In addition, shorter-dated issues were bid on heightened anticipation of an ECB rate cut to stall dollar weakness.

Economic data released Friday showed strength. Industrial production and capacity utilization were on track, while Michigan consumer data jumped sharply.
