US, UK yields climb as Wall Street heads higher

Selling pressure prevailed on Friday in the market for sovereign debt securities issued by the governments in Washington and London. Treasury yields advanced on the decline of the paper's face value while the pound and the euro rebounded compared to the dollar. Stocks in the Eurozone jumped and the main exchange in Britain showed just a minuscule gain. Wall Street indexes moved higher in premarket trade. Investors remained focused on the talks to end the government shutdown in the United States, the upcoming negotiations with China to end the trade war, as well as the ongoing Brexit fears.

The United Kingdom's two-year note yield climbed to 0.778% at 8:06 am ET. The ten-year measure gained the most, 1.5 basis points to 1.167%, and the 30-year yield was higher at 1.767%. The US two-year note yield increased slightly, to 2.579%. The ten-year benchmark jumped two points to 2.737%, while the yield on the 30-year bonds rose one and a half points to 3.052%. Prices of corresponding US futures were lower by 0.03%, 0.12% and 0.19%, respectively.

In comparison, the German 10-year yield was marginally up at 0.187% after touching 0.181%, the lowest mark in 27 months.
