Lightly Bid Into European Hours


T-Notes ticked higher as we moved towards European hours, although there has been little in the way of notable headline flow and the contract continues to hold a tight range, last +0-03 at 139-07. Earlier in the session 10.0K TYV0 138.00/140.00 risk reversals traded via block (delta hedged), this comes after a very similar expression traded during Friday's Asia-Pac session. Elsewhere, a market contact flagged a 5.5K screen seller of the TYV0 138.00/140.00 call spread, which was covered.

  • The cash curve has seen some light bull flattening, with yields unchanged to 1.4bp richer.
  • Broader markets were seemingly happy to look through the latest round of Sino-U.S. tension, geopolitical worry surrounding Belarus and pockets of COVID-19 restrictions in Europe/Asia, as they search for more decisive news flow at the start of a new trading week.

  • Eurodollar futures unchanged to +0.5 through the reds.
