TREASURIES-U.S. bond yields extend fall after May payrolls data

1 Min Read

NEW YORK, June 2 (Reuters) - U.S. Treasury yields added to their earlier drop on Friday as a smaller-than-forecast increase in domestic payrolls growth in May raised doubts about an acceleration in wage inflation and intensified investors' appetite for bonds.

Benchmark 10-year Treasury note yield was last 2.159 percent, down nearly 6 basis points from late on Thursday. It broke below its 200-day moving average, touching its lowest level since Nov. 10, Reuters data showed. (Reporting by Richard Leong)
