US TSYS: Matters surrounding the coronavirus situation continued to capture

that they have not called airlines re: suspending flight traffic to & from China
weighed on Tsys, with T-Notes having a look through Tuesday's lows before
recovering from worst levels. Contract last -0-01+ at 130-18, with yields
0.6-1.0bp lower across the curve.
- An uptick in U.S. equity indices in the wake of stronger than expected Apple
earnings also weighed on the space.

ladder traded on block, with a further 12.0K changing hands on screen. Later in
the session a 10.0K 1x2x2 USH0 159.00/161.00/162.00 call tree block was sold,
