NEW YORK — U.S. Treasury yields jumped and

a key part of the yield curve inverted further after data on

Friday showed that employers added more jobs than expected to

their payrolls in June.

Nonfarm payrolls increased by 372,000 jobs last month,

according to the Labor Department’s closely watched employment

report. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast 268,000 jobs

added last month.

Benchmark 10-year yields rose to 3.08%, from around 2.99%

before the data. Two-year yields jumped to 3.13%, from around

3.00%.

The two-year, 10-year part of the Treasury yield curve was

at minus 7 basis points, compared with around minus 3 basis

points before the jobs report. It inverted on Tuesday for the

first time in three weeks. An inversion in this part of the

curve is seen as a reliable indicator that a recession will

follow in one to two years.
