risk-on move with equities surging late (emini +33.0, 2723.25). Fear of metals
import tariff blowback, US Pres Trump not backing down on intentions, possibly

last wk. Gold weaker (XAU 0-3.39, 1319.36); Crude stronger (WTI +1.40, 62.65)
* Concerted risk-on move extending ranges in second half as Tsy futures extended
session lows, long end leading move; US$ index +.135 at 90.070 while Yen gains
vs. USD 106.206 vs. early low of 105.35. 
* Flow included fast$ and prop selling 5s and 10s, bank and real$ sellers 10s
and 30s, modest deal-tied flow in front end, early paying in 2s and 3s followed
by receiving in 5s and 10s, light flattener unwinds in 2s10s and 5s 30s, FX-tied
sales in intermediates-long end.
* Eurodollar futures weaker by the bell, at/near session lows w/Blue-Golds
underperforming. Short end under heavy sell pressure following jump in 3M LIBOR
this morning (+0.0097 to 2.0349%, +0.0690 last wk).
