U.S. government debt prices traded in a back-and-forth range on Friday, as investors digested the latest U.S. nonfarm payrolls data.
The U.S. economy added 215,000 jobs in March, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said. Economists polled by Reuters expected the economy to have added 205,000 jobs.
The jobs growth came as the headline unemployment rate rose to 5.0 percent, the first month-over-month increase since May 2015. The level of unemployed Americans considered part of the workforce rose to 7.97 million, from 7.82 million in February.
Other pieces of data released Friday included the ISM manufacturing index for March, which came in above estimates at 5.18. February construction spending, meanwhile dipped 0.5 percent.
