TREASURY WRAP: T-NOTE (U2) FUTURES SETTLE 1 POINT & 17 TICKS LOWER AT 115-09
Analysis details (20:59)
Sustained Treasury bear-flattening and one-way selling as Friday's CPI reaction extends into Wednesday's FOMC. 2s +29.9bps at 3.348%, 3s +28.1bps at 3.506%, 5s +24.8bps at 3.501%, 7s +23.6bps at 3.476%, 10s +22.2bps at 3.379%, 20s +19.5bps at 3.645%, 30s +17.4bps at 3.372%. 5yr TIPS +41.1bps at 0.388%, 10yr TIPS +26.2bps at 0.637%, 30yr TIPS +21.2bps at 0.884%. 5yr BEI -2.5bps at 3.138%, 10yr BEI -2.6bps at 2.723%, 30yr BEI -2.3bps at 2.519%.
THE DAY: The Tokyo session Monday picked up where the US closed last week, with selling in bonds picking up as APAC players reacted to Friday's multi-decade high US CPI reading. The bond selling saw 10yr JGBs test the BoJ's 0.25% top-end yield target range. High volume selling extended through Europe, with fixed income and equities selling in unison amid "stagflation" woes in play, particularly after the bleak UK GDP, IP and Output metrics. The US session provided little catalysts to alter the trend (no data releases , with selling momentum carrying right into settlement, and then again in late trade on a WSJ piece noting the higher likelihood of a 75bps rate hike this week - not explicitly citing Fed sources, but eerie nonetheless).
AHEAD: No Treasury coupon auctions this week but FOMC serves the highlight. On the US data front, PPI on Tuesday, Retail Sales and Import prices on Wednesday, and Philly Fed Mfg. on Thursday. Globally, Chinese production data Wednesday is on watch, while the BoE and SNB Thursday could provide some transatlantic pressures, ahead of the BoJ on Friday.
- Eurodollars saw acute selling with reds (2nd year of quarterlies) sold the hardest as momentum into a higher terminal Fed rate builds.
- EDM2 -2.3bps at 98.165, U2 -30.5bps at 96.765, Z2 -41.0bps at 95.975, H3 -41.5bps at 95.715, M3 -37.0bps at 95.71, U3 -34.0bps at 95.86, Z3 -30.5bps at 96.025, H4 -28.5bps at 96.15, Z4 -22.5bps at 96.42, Z5 -21.0bps at 96.615.
- Implied pricing for 75bps hike on Wednesday jumped to 60% from 25% earlier Monday after the WSJ article on the potential for a larger hike increment.
- NY Fed RRP op demand new record at USD 2.213tln across 97 bidders, while SOFR remained unchanged at 75bps.
- US sold USD 50bln of 3-month bills at 1.640% (prev. 1.230% last week), covered 2.27x; sold USD 47bln of 6-month bills at 2.160% (prev. 1.710%), covered 3.26x
- Note the 3-month bill auction tailed by a massive 11bps, with the new issue a massive 40.1bps cheaper than last week's issue, feeling the wrath of the post-CPI front-end selling as Dealers (forced surplus buyers) took 75% of the offering.
