US TSY FUTURES: ### Adding to last week's massive cross-asset spread trade:
Betting on Tsy ylds to decline relative to Germany. 
* Regarding this morning's large buy/blocks in FVM futures (34.675k from
113-11.5 to 113-12.5) is likely adding to a block sale in Jun Bobl futures
(6,831 at 130.92, see 0907ET bullet). As a reminder, last week saw a MASSIVE
steepener block in Tsys 
* +100,174 FVM 113-10.5

This occurred around same time as Massive flattener in Bunds/Bobl
