It's a fairly simple morning so far for the bond market.  In a time when day to day movement is highly data dependent, we continue to see logical reactions to instances of economic data that deviates from forecasts.  Today's Jobless Claims  data qualifies with a result of 187k versus a 207k consensus.  That's the lowest number in over a year and bonds are actually holding ground fairly well considering the implications.
