Treasury Traders Await Auction

Friday’s sharp sell-off seemed to knock the bulls off of their high horse but the pullback might work in their favor as higher yields could attract buyers to the upcoming Treasury auctions. On the slate for tomorrow is $40 billion in 3-year notes and $26 billion in 1-year securities.
Volume, and trade, was anemic but this can all change in the blink of an eye. There seems to be a considerable amount of call buying activity in the VIX as well as put buying in the equity indices. Also, commentators on business news stations “felt” a bit too bullish this morning…and this could signal an intermediate-term top in the equity indices. If this is the case, bonds and notes will be a direct beneficiary.
There is very little economic data until Thursday and Friday and this could keep trading interest at a minimum. On Friday, we stated that we were waiting to see what Monday brings but today’s trade brought little clarity. Let’s see what Tuesday brings…
Sorry to be so brief and indecisive, but we don’t have much to go on and I would rather be lacking an opinion that force a foolish one.
