Treasuries Close Higher Following Ten-Year Note Auction

Trading 12 mar 2018 Commentaire »

Treasuries moved higher over the course of the trading session on Monday after showing a lack of direction in the morning.

Bond prices bounced back and forth across the unchanged line before moving to the upside going into the close. Subsequently, the yield on the benchmark ten-year note, which moves opposite of its price, fell by 2.4 basis points to 2.870 percent.

The higher close by treasuries came after the Treasury Department's auction of $21 billion worth of ten-year notes attracted slightly above average demand.

The ten-year note auction drew a high yield of 2.889 percent and a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.50, while the ten previous ten-year note auctions had an average bid-to-cover ratio of 2.43.

The bid-to-cover ratio is a measure of demand that indicates the amount of bids for each dollar worth of securities being sold.

Earlier in the day, the Treasury sold $28 billion worth of three-year notes, attracting average demand

The three-year note auction drew a high yield of 2.436 percent and a bid-to-cover ratio of 2.94, while the ten previous three-year note auctions had an average bid-to-cover ratio of 2.93.

Trading activity was somewhat subdued, however, with a lack of major U.S. economic data keeping some traders on the sidelines.

In the coming days, reports on inflation, retail sales, regional manufacturing activity, housing starts and industrial production are likely to attract attention.

Reaction to the Labor Department's report on consumer prices in the month of February is likely to impact trading on Tuesday.

Consumer prices are expected to rise by 0.2 percent in February after climbing by 0.5 percent in January. Core consumer prices, which exclude food and energy prices, are also expected to edge up by 0.2 percent.

Bond traders are also likely to keep an eye on the results of the Treasury's auction of $13 billion worth of thirty-year bonds.

Dollar Weakening On Light Data Day

Trading 12 mar 2018 Commentaire »

The dollar is losing ground against all of its major rivals Monday afternoon. The lack of economic data at the start of the new trading week is keeping some investors on the sidelines.

Traders continue to react to Friday's jobs report for February. The U.S. economy created 313,000 new jobs in February, the biggest gain since mid-2016. However, the 12-month increase in worker pay declined to 2.6% from 2.8%, a sign that wages may not be keeping up with inflation.

The lackluster wage growth may prevent the Federal Reserve from raising interest rates four times in 2018.

The dollar rose to an early high of $1.2290 against the Euro Monday, but has since retreated to around $1.2335.

The buck reached a high of $1.3840 against the pound sterling Monday morning, but has since pulled back to around $1.39.

The greenback climbed to an early high of Y106.972 against the Japanese Yen Monday, but has since dropped to around Y106.360.

Japan's business survey index of large manufacturers weakened notably in the three months ended March, the quarterly survey by the Ministry of Finance and the Cabinet Office showed Monday.

The Business Survey Index, or BSI, dropped 2.9 in the three-month period to March from 9.7 in the previous three months.
