Prices for U.S. 30-year Treasuries rise one point

NEW YORK, April 3 (Reuters) - Prices for U.S. 30-year Treasuries rose a full point on Wednesday, as jobs data hinted key labor market figures later in the week could disappoint.

Thirty-year bonds gained just over a point in price before more recently trading up 31/32 to yield 3.050 percent.

The ADP National Employment Report said on Wednesday that private employers added 158,000 jobs last month, falling short of economists’ expectations for 200,000 new jobs.

The lower-than-expected figures could affect estimates for key nonfarm payrolls data due on Friday.
