U.S. sovereign bond prices were lower Wednesday as bond investors analyzed the ADP private sector payroll report.
The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note, which moves inversely to its price, moved lower to 1.5663 percent, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond was lower at 2.2295 percent.
Job creation at the company level rose about in line with expectations in August, despite weakness in manufacturing and construction, according to the latest report from ADP and Moody's Analytics.
Companies added 177,000 positions for the month, just above Wall Street expectations for 175,000. ADP payrolls totaled 179,000 last month, while the government report was 255,000. Economists expect to see 180,000 jobs in the government report Friday.
The report is seen as a kind of warm-up to government employment nonfarm figures with August's numbers expected this Friday. The data have taken on greater importance since several Federal Reserve members opened the door to hiking interest rates in September at theJackson Hole symposium last week.
