Waiting For October

It seems like September only just arrived, but our sights are already set on October as the scene of the next major battle in the bond market.  Today's trading session offered nothing of value, although it was "nice" to see a token correction in bonds after hitting multi-year highs yesterday.  The coming week will be hard-pressed to reshape the narrative given the absence of big ticket data, but the following week has it in spades
