Fiscal impasse on the Hill has provided a light bid to Tsys early this week, with some weekend focus on North Korea unveiling its newest ICBM and the aforementioned CNY matters also noted. T-Notes last +0-01+ at 138-28, as the contract sticks to a 0-02+ range early on.

A reminder that Senate Majority Leader McConnell has suggested that is unlikely that there will be a fiscal deal this side of the election, meaning much of the recent rhetoric is all about framing the negotiations ahead of the November election.
  • As we stand, the Trump admin has called on Congress to pass a pared-down relief bill using the remaining funds from an expired small business loan program, while suggesting that negotiations surrounding the larger package should continue.
