Back to Breaking Even on The Week

Bonds rallied overnight thanks to weaker econ data in Europe and managed to build modestly on those gains throughout the domestic session.  The most notable scheduled calendar event turned out to be the 3yr Treasury auction at 1pm.  It had a noticeably positive (but not huge) impact on both the long and the short end of the yield curve.  Bonds hit their best levels at 2pm and leveled off after that.  The gains ended up erasing about half of the weakness seen since Friday morning, and all of the weakness seen since Friday's close.
