It was another extremely flat overnight session.  10yr Treasuries again held inside a 2bps range (2.87-2.89 this time) and again began to improve just slightly heading into the 830am data.  Unlike yesterday, today's data was bond-friendly.

Consumer Prices were perfectly on target and not a big market mover.  Jobless Claims were also very close to consensus, but the Continued Claims component was significantly higher.  Take a look:

Fannie 4.0s were already improving somewhat at the open, but have added another 4-5 ticks since the data, currently up 6 on the day at 103-26.  10yr yields dropped from 2.878 to 2.853.
