US TSYS
Tsys trading modestly weaker, came under pressure in early London trade after higher than expected French, Italian and Spanish GDP economic data triggered selling in EGBs w/ brief pause after weaker than expected German GDP.
  • This after rates and stocks rallied after Thursday's U.S. GDP contracted by 0.9% in the second quarter, far below analyst expectations for a 0.4% gain, driven by decreases in inventory investment, housing and government spending, according to Wed's advance est by Bureau of Economic Analysis.
  • Tsys currently off recent overnight lows, curves steeper w/ bonds underperforming (30YY +.0401 at 3.0629%).
  • Focus turns to Friday's data calendar w/ Personal Income (0.5% est), Personal Spending (0.9% est), ECI (1.2% est), Chicago PMI (55.0 est) and U-Mich (51.1 est.).
  • Fed out of blackout but still no scheduled speakers as yet - but will most likely see some commentary on networks.
  • Cross asset: spot Gold +6.54 at 1762.38, Crude higher WTI +2.07 at 98.50, stocks firmer ESU2 +32.0 at 4105.50.
