Bond Markets Moderately Stronger Overnight With Help From Europe
There's little of substance to report from the overnight session. Relevant data was limited to a tame inflation report in the Eurozone, which coincided with German Bund yields rallying to approach Thursday's lows.
As they frequently do, US Treasuries took cues from Bunds, but didn't rally in the same proportion. 10yr yields were just over 1 bp lower from Friday's latest levels--about mid-range between Friday's highs and lows.
MBS are similarly about half-way between Friday's highs and lows. Fannie 3.5s are up 3 ticks at 102-27. Both MBS and Treasuries have pulled back a bit from their best levels of the morning.
Two potential market movers on tap: Chicago PMI at 9:45am and Pending Home Sales at 10am.
