Silicon Valley Bank was shut down as insolvent by California regulators on Friday and taken over by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Adam Turnquist, chief technical strategist at LPL Financial, the investment bank, said: "The failure of the Silicon Valley bank sent a warning to the banking sector as bears came out of hibernation this week."
Karim El Nokali, an investment strategist at Schroders, said in a telephone interview that the positive aspects of the jobs report could be overshadowed by investor concerns about the banking sector.
The US Labour market continued to grow strongly in February, according to data from the Bureau of Labour Statistics, with non-farm payrolls rising 311,000, beating economists' expectations of 225,000.
But average hourly earnings rose "a little less than expected" in February, which is a positive development from an inflation perspective, Mr Nokari said.
Average hourly earnings rose 0.2 per cent in February from the previous month, below the 0.3 per cent increase economists had expected and down from January's 0.3 per cent gain. The unemployment rate rose to 3.6% in February as the labor force grew.
Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said earlier this week that "headline" data on employment and inflation will determine whether the Fed raises rates by another 50 basis points at its meeting later in March.
The yield on the two-year note fell 31.4 basis points to 4.586% on Friday. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell 22.8 basis points to 3.694%. The 2-10-year Treasury yield curve remains heavily inverted, which is one of the reasons the banking sector is in trouble.
