U.S. stock-index futures moved modestly higher and benchmark Treasury yields jumped on Thursday after the government reported the economy created a better-than-expected 288,000 jobs in June.
"It was a very good report. The stock market reaction is fairly muted, but the bond market's reaction is a pretty strong one," said JJ Kinahan, chief strategist at TD Ameritrade.
The unemployment rate fell to 6.1 percent.
Holding steady ahead of the jobs report, the yield on the 10-year Treasury jumped five basis points to 2.675 percent after the data.
The European Union kept monetary policy unchanged as expected on Thursday following last month's measures to stimulate the economy.
On the New York Mercantile Exchange, gold futures fell 1.1 percent to $1,316.00 an ounce; crude oil futures declined 47 cents, or 0.5 percent, to $104.01 a barrel.
