10-year Treasury yield edges back toward 2.40%

Treasury prices fell, pulling yields higher, on Friday, taking a cue from a selloff in European government paper after data showed the eurozone's economic recovery continues apace.

What are Treasury yields doing?

The 10-year Treasury note yield traded at 2.376%, up from 2.333% late Thursday. The 2-year note yield rose to 1.650% versus 1.633%. Meanwhile, the 30-year bond yield rose to 2.861%, from 2.808%.

What's driving the market?

Strong economic data out of the eurozone underlined the currency bloc's continued recovery. That could mean the European Central Bank would be more aggressive in winding down its monetary stimulus program, which is due to be scaled back beginning in 2018.

Investors are also watching the progress of legislation to overhaul the U.S. tax code amid differences between the bills proposed by the House Republicans and their Senate counterparts .

What do market participants say?

"The curve flattening move that took place over the last 8 days is being unwound in massive way. Many fear of more downside in prices as Euro-Govies are on uneasy footing as our U.S. Treasurys at the moment," said Tom di Galoma, managing director of Treasurys trading at Seaport Global Securities, referring to the selloff seen in European sovereign bonds.

The so-called yield curve, which traces maturities against respective bond yields, has flattened in the past two weeks on concerns that the Federal Reserve would raise rates against a backdrop of tepid inflation.

What else is on investors' radar?

The University of Michigan will release its consumer sentiment index at 10 a.m. Eastern.

What other assets are on the move?

European sovereign debt yields headed higher after a solid raft of economic data. French industrial production rose 0.6% in September, slightly higher than the 0.5% consensus estimate.

The yield for the 10-year German government bond, or bunds, rose 4.9 basis points to 0.377%, while the 10-year French government bond yield rose 6.1 basis point to 0.754%
