Market Extra: Treasurys rally as investors grapple with economic and geopolitical jitters

Treasury prices rose Thursday, pushing yields lower, after a weak eurozone purchasing managers index and the release of the Mueller report, drew investors into government paper.

In a holiday-shortened week, the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association recommends the bond market close early at 2 p.m. Eastern, and stay closed on Good Friday.

The 10-year Treasury note yield TMUBMUSD10Y, -1.29% slipped 2.9 basis points to 2.563%, while the 2-year note yield TMUBMUSD02Y, -0.68% edged lower by 1.6 basis points to 2.386%. The 30-year bond yield TMUBMUSD30Y, -1.15% fell 3.2 basis points to 2.960%. Bond prices move inversely to yields.
