US TSYS: A tight re-open for T-Notes despite President Trump re-affirming his
preference for a "full" deal with China, but opening the potential for an
"interim" deal, or at least the consideration of one, in comments made during
the NY/Asia crossover N.B. such a deal was played down by White House officials
in NY hours. Contract last +0-02 at 129-16 after selling off on Thursday, while
the front end of the curve marginally underperformed.
- The ECB MonPol decision (which saw a whippy market reaction) coupled with the
latest trade developments (Trump's tariff delay and Chinese firms looking to
purchases U.S. ags) meant that the majority of the day's volume had traded well
ahead of the NY lunch break. Domestic CPI was solid enough, as the core reading
providing a marginal beat and an uptick in Y/Y terms, while the headline
provided a marginal miss and a downtick in Y/Y terms.
- Elsewhere, the latest 30-Year auction saw a 1.6bp tail, steady cover ratio and
pretty stable take down metrics.
- Retail sales & UoM sentiment provide the highlights of Friday's local
calendar.
