BOND SUMMARY: Core FI futures have moved away from session lows that were
inspired by weekend newsflow. The Trump-Xi meeting concluded with a U.S.-China
trade truce, before Trump had an impromptu meeting with North Korean leader Kim.
Soft Chinese data and the realisation that the trade truce holds little in the
way of substance re: structural issues allowed yields to tick back from highs.
- T-Notes still trade -0-08+ at 127-22+. Cash Tsys have witnessed some modest
bear flattening. Eurodollar futures last seen 4.0-5.5 ticks lower through the
- JGB futures last trade at 153.73, 12 ticks below settlement. The curve sits
steeper on the back of the weekend news and the tweaks to the BoJ's Rinban plans
announced Friday. Today's Tankan Survey saw a decline in business sentiment
measures, even as capex plans remain solid.
- AU bonds have followed the broader theme, with tomorrow's RBA decision in
view. YM last 0.5 tick lower, with XM 1.5 ticks lower. Bills are trading 1 tick
higher to 1 tick lower through the reds.
- In German FI Schatz -1.5 ticks, Bobls -3.0 ticks, Bunds -8 ticks.
