Bond Markets Slightly Weaker Overnight and Into US Session
Posted to: Micro News
Tuesday, August 5, 2014 9:05 AM
The overnight session began uneventfully in Asia with Treasuries and S&P futures holding excruciatingly flat. The tone brought on by European hours was decidedly different. Right from the start of European bond market trading, Treasuries have been pressured steadily higher in yield by a strong move higher in core European bond markets.
10yr yields crossed into the domestic session just slightly higher and have weakened a bit more since then. Similarly, MBS are 3 ticks lower at the moment after starting the day 1 tick lower. Fannie 3.5s are currently at 102-08 and 10yr yields are up 1bp at 2.502.
The day's only significant scheduled economic data arrives at 10am in the form of ISM Non-Manufacturing.
