Treasury prices posted big losses during Friday's shortened trading session as the death throes of the market's hopes for immediate Fed rate cuts caused massive selling.

The sell-off pushed the 30-year yield above 7.50% for the first time in more than two months. The long bond closed 7/8 point lower on the day, and off 2 1/8 points on the week, to yield 7.51%.
