Treasury Yield Curve Flattens


S&P MARKETSCOPE:: Treasury prices rose on the bonds that come due later while shorter-dated bonds barely budged Friday, as investors continued watching the energy markets following Hurricane Katrina.

Trading activity was characterized by a flattening of the yield curve, as the long end moved down while the short end went mostly unchanged. The 10-year note rose by 05/32 to 101-01/32 for a yield of 4.12%. The 30-year bond climbed 15/32 to 114-26/32 for a yield of 4.40%.

August import prices rose 1.3%, driven primarily by a 7.1% jump in petroleum prices. Export prices eased 0.1%. Equities were trading higher as the bond market closed, aided in part by a drop in oil and gasoline futures.
