A swing in risk tone pressured T-Notes,.....>

US TSYS: A swing in risk tone pressured T-Notes, although they still sit some
way above settlement levels, +0-14+ at writing, at 137-22+ (just off overnight
lows), with the long end underperforming on the curve for the duration of the
session. No one could really put their finger on the move, with asset allocation
(potential from sovereign wealth names), "too far, too fast" in terms of the
recent equity swings, a potential coronavirus vaccine article circulated (that
was both dated, and a little questionable, touting a best case release date of
November) & de-leveraging all touted. Overall, It was another choppy Asia
session, punctuated by thinner liquidity, with the Fed's latest round of
liquidity operations & broader scope for FI purchases/announced ops doing little
to take the edge off of things for now. Yields sit in positive territory across
the curve, with swap spreads mixed, wider out to 3s, tighter from there out.
- Eurodollar futures -7.0 to +1.5 through the reads, with FRA/OIS widening
again, currently not operating at levels seen since 2009.
- Prelim UoM sentiment data is due today, but focus will be on all things re:
the Fed liquidity front.
