Bond Markets Hold Majority Of Gains Overnight
Posted to: Micro News
Tuesday, February 26, 2013 9:00 AM
The overnight session was fairly straightforward with US Treasuries continuing to do what they did for most of Monday: follow the Euro. Asian hours saw a sideways-to-slightly-weaker slide as both Euros and Treasuries hit new 1+ month lows heading into the European session.
10's made it as low as 1.836 and along with Bunds and the Euro, bounced slightly higher before leveling off into a narrow but choppy range trade that persisted throughout the night. 10's hit New york in a range of 1.88 to 1.86 and are currently just under a bp higher at 1.874. S&P futures never moved lower after 5pm and are now at their best levels of the overnight session, roughly 10 points improved from Monday's close.
MBS came in the door a few small ticks weaker than yesterday's mighty (relative) closing levels at 103-19. They've been no higher so far this morning and are currently 2 ticks off on the session at 103-17. House price data is coming up with Consumer Confidence, New Home Sales and Bernanke at 10am.
