Bond Markets Slightly Weaker Amid Quiet Conditions
Posted to: Micro News
Monday, December 23, 2013 9:15 AM
As is typical for the holiday-shortened week, trading activity is subdued and thankfully, so is volatility. Treasuries settled into a range overnight with yields just above Friday's latest levels. 10's hovered around 2.90 until moving to 2.92 just after 8am.
Fannie 4.0s opened 7 ticks lower at 103-03, but both MBS and Treasuries improved after the 8:30am economic data (though not necessarily because of it). 10's returned to their overnight range, currently up 2bps on the day at 0.0184 and Fannie 4.0s are down 1 tick at 103-09.
The only other scheduled data this morning is Consumer Sentiment at 9:55am. It's not likely to cause significant market movement, but it can cause some if it's far enough away from the 83.0 forecast.
