Authorities bond yields rise forward of the ADP job report
The US 10-year Treasury yield surged back above 1.56% early Wednesday, before ADP’s September employment change report was released later that morning.
The benchmark 10-year bond yield rose 3 basis points to 1.564% at 3:20 a.m. ET. The yield on the 30-year government bond rose almost 4 basis points to 2.137%. The returns move inversely to the prices and 1 basis point equals 0.01%.
The 10-year rate topped 1.56% last week, its highest level since June, amid inflation and tighter monetary policy.
Payroll company ADP will be posting its monthly job report at 8:15 a.m. ET.
The closely watched report on off-farm payrolls for September is then due Friday at 8:30 p.m. ET.
