Suddenly Scared About Powell and Supply

Most of today's market movement was in the books within the first half hour of domestic trading.  As such, the end of day thoughts don't add much to the AM commentary.  Long story short, global markets are suddenly scared of what Powell may have to say at Tuesday's Q&A at a previously scheduled appearance.  Anxiety was/is amplified by the presence of a new round of 3/10/30yr Treasury auctions and a slew of corporate bond issuance adding to the supply side of the bond market equation for the week.
