U.S. government debt yields jumped Friday after metrics in the latest Labor Department jobs report showed budding signs of inflation.
The closely watched average hourly wages figure rose by an annualized 2.9 percent, a faster pace than the Federal Reserve's 2 percent target for inflation.
Following the report, the 2-year Treasury note yield hit a high of 1.52 percent, its highest since 2008. The 2-year note yield is currently trading at 1.508 percent.
The 10-year yield also hit a high of 2.393 percent after the release, its highest level in nearly three months, before losing some ground at 2.364 percent.
The yield on the 30-year Treasury bond was up slightly at 2.9 percent at 11:57 a.m. ET. Bond yields move inversely to prices.
