TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The dollar’s rally took a pause on Friday as investors awaited monthly U.S. jobs data later in the day and evaluated the impact of a two-day global government bond rout that has lifted U.S. Treasury yields to seven-year highs.
The yield on the benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury note hit its highest levels since May 2011 after private payrolls data came in stronger than forecast.
