China Repo Rates Rise on Tuesday


ACGBs & Regional Demand Helping


Cabinet Meeting Eyed Today

US TSYS: Continued risk aversion surrounding what feels like the ever-spreading
coronavirus situation across the Asia-Pac region pushed 10-Year Tsy yields below
1.50% for the first time since September, even with Chinese officials talking up
economic resilience (highlighting near term headwinds) & speeding up the study
of fiscal measures to deal with the fallout surrounding the virus. Further virus
cases declared in South Korea, coupled with measures adopted in two major cities
in the country, a (relatively modest) uptick in the Chinese daily virus case
count, alongside soft flash Japanese & Australian PMIs headlined. T-Notes +0-09
at 131-23, as Europeans force contract to best levels as they settle at their
desks. Bull flattening the theme in cash trade, yields 1.6-3.1bp lower across
the curve. Flow was active enough. Looking at blocks specifically, there was a
seller of 12.0K TUH0 vs. buying 25.0K EDM0, block buyer of 5.4K FVH0 120.00
calls covered & a block buyer of 7.5K TYH0 131.25 calls.
- Eurodollar futures are 0.5 to 3.0 ticks higher through the reds.
- Global flash PMIs will draw the attention today. Fedspeak sees Clarida,
Brainard, Kaplan & Mester due up.
