Market closes

Stock Market — The S&P 500 on Friday dropped to a 3-1/2 week low and closed lower: S&P 500 -0.21%, Dow Jones -0.09%, Nasdaq 100 -0.16%.  Bearish factors included (1) global growth concerns after China Feb exports fell -20.7% y/y, weaker than expectations of -5.0% y/y and the biggest decline in 3 years, and (2) the +20,000 increase in U.S. Feb non-farm payrolls, weaker than expectations of +180,000 and the smallest increase in 17 months. 

Interest Rates — Jun 10-year T-notes on Friday jumped to a 2-month high and closed higher: TYH9 +3.50, FVH9 +1.75.  Bullish factors included (1) the +20,00 increase in U.S. Feb non-farm payrolls, weaker than expectations of +180,000, which may keep the Fed from additional rate hikes, and (3) the decline in the S&P 500 to a 3-1/2 week low, which boosted the safe-haven demand for T-notes.  T-notes fell back from their best levels after U.S. Feb avg hourly earnings rose +3.4% y/y, stronger than expectations of +3.3% y/y and the largest year-on-year increase in 10 years.
