Treasuries extended losses after a private report showed U.S. employers added more jobs in August than economists forecast. Treasury 10-year yields earlier climbed from almost a one-month low amid speculation the European Central Bank willannounce details of a plan to buy sovereign bonds of highly-indebted euro-region nations. The 10-year yield rose four basis points, or 0.04% point, to 1.64% at 8:16 a.m. in New York. The rate touched 1.54% on Sept. 4, the lowest since Aug. 6. I believe this is just a bump in the road.
My position on MBS stays long.
