Prosecutors say they are resting their case in the murder trial of George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer charged with fatally shooting Trayvon Martin. U.S. employers added a robust 195,000 jobs in June and many more in April and May than previously thought. The job growth suggests a stronger economy and means the Federal Reserve could slow its bond purchases by as early as September. Rising bond yields claimed some victims in the stock market today. Utilities, for example, which in an era of low bond yields have proved popular for their dividend income, are weaker. But the sharp jump in bond yields has not been enough to throw stock markets off a stride quickened by the better-than-expected US jobs report.
