Barclays: A Strange Twist Of FAIT

BOND SUMMARY: Core FI space has firmed up as markets received the lack of
clarity re: a fiscal package from the Trump administration with disappointment,
while continued spread of the novel coronavirus remains a source of worry.
T-Notes trade +0-17 at 138-05, just off highs. Yields sit 6.9-12.2bp lower
across the curve. Eurodollars last seen -0.5 to +1.5 tick through the reds.
Early "Mini-Tuesday" results have favoured Joe Biden, who is deemed a more
mkt-friendly candidate, briefly applying a modicum of pressure to T-Notes.
- JGB futures have crept higher & last trade at 154.55, +16 ticks vs.
settlement. Belly of the cash yield curve remains somewhat limited, even as the
BoJ left the size of its 5-10 Year JGB purchases unchanged today.
- Aussie bond futures operate near session highs; YM +6.0 & XM +7.5. Yields
trade 3.7-7.5bp lower in cash trade. Bills last seen unch. to 6 pips higher
through the reds. An auction of ACGB 1.50% 21 June 2031 was less than inspiring,
while Australia's housing finance data topped exp., but broader cross-currents
have taken centre stage. Local Westpac Consumer Confidence Survey was rather
underwhelming, but provoked little response in the space.
