Stocks gave up early gains on Friday morning as Treasury yields continued to rise in the wake of a much stronger-than-expected February employment report. The Labor Department said that the U.S. added 379,000 nonfarm payroll jobs in February, up from a revised 166,000 in January and well above the Reuters consensus forecast of 182,000. The official unemployment rate also fell slightly to 6.2% from 6.3% in January. The Dow rose 0.2%, the S&P fell 0.2%, and the Nasdaq fell 1.5%. Crude oil traded near $66 per barrel, while gold fell $5 to $1696 per ounce.
