U.S. Futures Fluctuate after Weaker Job Data, Dollar Declines

The Market opened today's session with treasuries lower across all maturities. The 10-year Treasury yield is currently at 1.3173, 3.38 bps higher than prior closing of 1.2835.

U.S. Futures fluctuated after job data came out to be weaker than the estimate. S&P 500 contracts remained unchanged and Futures on the Nasdaq 100 fell 0.10%. Nonfarm payrolls increased 235,000 in the August month, far less than the estimate of 733,000. The unemployment rate fell to 5.2%. Average hourly earnings rose 0.60% m/m. The reduction in hiring reflects fears about the spreading delta variant of coronavirus. Increase in infection also affected the consumer activities and return to office plans. Investors are now concerned about the economic recovery as the Federal Reserve is planning to taper stimulus. Dollar declined after the report whereas the Gold increased. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note changed its direction after an initial decline.

The curve has bear-steepened with the UST 10-Year yield up 3.38 bps.
