BOND SUMMARY: After big moves yesterday ahead of the North American open, bond
markets have been relatively quiet in comparison this morning. Bonds are pushing
higher after the disappointing German factory orders print this morning. The
year-on-year print was the worst reading since September 2009, bringing concerns
surrounding the European and global economies back to the fore. There has also
been continued focus on US-China trade talks with Trump due to meet Liu today
and headlines suggesting that the US have set a target of China fulfilling its
trade pledges by 2025.
