Tsys trading weaker after the bell, just off midday lows on modest risk-on tone with equities firmer (ESU1 +16.0). Generally sedate summer trade persisted while traders turn focus on Fed Gov Waller virtual event on digital currency, MN Fed Pres Kashkari at 1600ET, and Fri's headline July employment data (+870k est vs. +850k prior).
  • Futures had pared gains ahead weekly claims, drew two-way flurry on light volume on more-or-less in-line read (385k vs. 383k est). Futures bounce off early session low with Tsys holding mixed briefly. Support for bonds evaporated soon after, intermediates lead the sell-off into midday.
