Bonds Blasted by Data and Stop-Gap

The stop-gap bill that averted the government shutdown was worth some instant selling in the bond market.  It was not a given that this would be the reaction as past examples have gone both ways.  We also can't rule out random tradeflows associated with the changeover in the month/quarter. Selling intensified after the 10am ISM Manufacturing data with losses peaking just after the noon hour.  10yr yields hit a new long term high at 4.701 and MBS lost just over half a point.
