Be Very, Very Careful in Bond Market, Says Ameriprise Financial CEO

U.S. stocks rose in a choppy day of trading as dip-buyers emerged in the final minutes of trading Friday. Treasuries fell, with the short end of the curve bearing the brunt of the selloff. 

The S&P 500 ended the day up 0.5%, near highs of the day with the 1% swing Friday the smallest since Feb. 15. The Nasdaq 100 closed little changed. The yield on the two-year Treasury note, among the most sensitive to changes in interest rates, rose 14 basis points to 2.28%.
