The article reports that the Bond Buyer's yield indexes in the U.S. rose for a third consecutive week. The increase was spurred by heavy supply and inflation fears that may build upon today's employment report. Yields crept up seven to 10 basis points on Monday and have held fast since. The market's just sitting, waiting for today's employment figures, one trader said. Most forecasts predict the economy added 225,000 jobs in February 2005, but numbers veering from that could roil the markets, said John Lonski, chief economist at Moody's Investors Service Inc.
