Bonds Rebound, Nat Gas Slides: Market Bits

The 2-year note fell 2/32, pushing up the yield to 0.869%. The ten-year note lost 7/32, raising the yield to 3.494% and the 30-year bond fell 12/32, increasing the yield to 4.533%.

iShares Barclays TIPS (Treasury Inflation Protected Securities) Bond Fund (TIP) fell 0.7% to $108.43.

The selloff came as nonfarm payroll numbers turned out to be much better than expected.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics said in its Employment Situation Report that nonfarm payrolls rose by 216,000 in March, surprising economists, who on average were expecting the figure to increase by 185,000, according to Briefing.com.

Companies added 230 jobs, helping to offset the decline in state and local government payrolls.
