The Tuesday session was largely a repeat of Monday's affair as longer-dated agency MBS prices and U.STreasuries climbed in slow, but steady, fashion throughout the day while the short end remained little changedThe continued pressure on the yield curve compressed the 2s10s spread by another basis point to 69 bps while the 10-year closed at 2.31%. The Job Openings and Labor Turnover (JOLT) Survey showed that openings increased in SeptemberWe also learned yesterday that total outstanding consumer credit increased by $20.8 billion in September, driven mostly by nonrevolving creditThe $24 billion 3-year Treasury auction went "ok." There was a lot of news over the last 12-18 hours with a bunch of US & European companies announcing earnings, China's October trade data, Trump's North Korea speech, Trump's arrival in China, more US tax noise, the ongoing curve flattening debate (why and what does it mean?), and the US electionsFor other thrills and chills today, we've had the MBA's survey of retail mortgage applications from last week (unchanged, with refis -1% and purchases +15)And the Treasury will conduct the second leg of this week's Refunding when $23 billion new 10-year notes are auctioned this afternoon. We start Wednesday with rates pretty much unchanged versus Monday and Tuesday: the 10-year is yielding 2.31% and agency MBS prices are indeed unchanged.
