58.8% indirects, fairly strong 6.82% directs, leaving a mildly large 34.4% for
- Tsys, rates opened NY mixed, long end outperforming, then technical selling,
pre-auction shorts, limited dip buying on tame 0.2% Aug PPI, 0.1% Core PPI.
Sellers appeared to be in US accounts more than foreign accounts, said traders.
Stronger USD/JPY fueled some selling with fast$ and real$ sellers adding to
deal-tied hedging in intermediates on the long end. Mild rate paying in 2Y-10Ys.
- Option-tied sales arose in US Eurodollar futures into Friday Sep quarterly
futures and options expiry. Late large sale of Eurodollar futures: 28,000 sold
in Sep'17 98.672.
- T-Notes open Asia flat at 126.26+, 10-Year yield last at 2.188%.
