NEW YORK, Sept 5 U.S. Treasuries prices trimmed
losses on Thursday after payroll processor ADP said U.S.
companies added 176,000 jobs in August, slightly below the
180,000 increase forecast among economists polled by Reuters.
There were expectations the ADP figure could be as high as
200,000, which would have raised expectations of a robust
reading in Friday's government payrolls report.
Benchmark 10-year Treasury notes last traded
10/32 lower with a yield of 2.936 percent, up 3.9 basis points
from late on Wednesday. Shortly before the release of the ADP
National Employment Report, the 10-year notes were down 13/32 in
price with a yield of 2.947 percent.
