OI Points To Mix Of SOFR Futures Long Setting & Short Cover On Monday

STIR

The combination of yesterday's move higher in SOFR futures and preliminary OI data points to the following positioning swings on Monday:

  • Whites: Net short cover was seemingly seen in all contracts outside of what looked to be net long setting in SFRH4, with the former dominating in net pack terms.
  • Reds: An apparent mix of net long setting (SFRH5 & U5) and net short cover (SFRZ4 & M5), with the former dominating in net pack terms.
  • Greens: Net long cover was seemingly seen in all contracts outside of some apparent short cover in SFRH6, with the former dominating in net pack terms.
  • Blues: A mix of net long setting (SFRH7 & M7) and net short cover (SFRZ6 & U7), with the former dominating in net pack terms.
  • All net pack OI swings, and indeed the contract specific moves, were relatively contained.
