Marvin Loh, senior global macro strategist at State Street in Boston said, "Maybe the economy has structurally changed to the point where real yields need to be higher than what they were in the five years before the pandemic," adding, "We are in a period where it's unclear how much slowing of the economy 500 basis points have actually generated," he said, referring to the amount the Fed has raised interest rates since March 2022."

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note jumped more than 13 basis points within a half hour after the report's release to a fresh 16-year high of 4.8874%, adding to this month's steep sell-off. Bond yields move inversely to price.

Bond yields later eased a bit from early highs and the three major US stock indexes rallied as stock investors saw moderating wage growth as decelerating inflation further.

Tim Ghriskey, senior portfolio strategist at Ingalls & Snyder in New York said, "We've raised rates, inflation is coming down and the economy is booming," adding, "It's the best of all worlds as long as inflation keeps coming down and that's the risk - if inflation doesn't keep coming down."

US Fed rate hike in focus

Futures traders raised the probability of the Fed hiking rates in November to 29.2%, up from 23.7% before the data's release, according to CME Group's FedWatch Tool. The Fed's overnight rate was priced above 5% through next July.

Everyone who has looked at the September employment data is stunned, said Matt Miskin, co-investment strategist at John Hancock Investment Management in Boston. "The jobs report was a stunner and the market reaction is stunning."

The US dollar index, a measure of the greenback against six other currencies, initially rose then fell, down 0.24%, as it snapped an 11-week winning streak after hitting its best level in about 11 months earlier in the week.
