US TSYS

  • Notably, 2Y yield surged to 3.0611% - the highest level since 2008, while curves bull flattened after some initial volatility in the long end: 2s10s at 9.858 (-12.786) vs. 9.421 low, 5s10s inverted, flattening -7.273 at -9.761 vs. -10.722 low, while 5s30s slipped to inverted low of -6.661.
  • Reaction spurred several dealers to up their rate hikes estimates with Barclays now sees a 75bp Fed hike next week.
