Bond Markets Stronger Overnight, Little-Changed After Data
Posted to: Micro News
Monday, March 3, 2014 8:49 AM
Treasuries rallied significantly overnight on geopolitical tensions surrounding Ukraine. In classic 'flight-to-safety' fashion, stock prices are down big and MBS can't keep up with Treasury gains. Fannie 3.5s are only up 7 ticks compared to 13 ticks in 10yr Treasury price (0.464 in terms of yield).
This morning's first round of data--Incomes and Outlays--isn't much of a market mover anyway, but is clearly not up to the task of giving any guidance this morning despite showing stronger-than-expected consumer spending.
Incomes and Outlays
- Personal Income +0.3 vs +0.2 forecast
- Spending +0.4 vs +0.1 forecast
- Adjustments for ACA affected the spending figures
Coming up at 10am, the ISM Manufacturing report is in a different league than the spending data from 8:30am. A noticeably stronger or weaker result will not be as easily overlooked though the situation in Ukraine could serve to limit selling pressure if the ISM data is significantly stronger.
