US TSYS SUMMARY
US TSYS SUMMARY: Tsys ended Mon mainly higher after risk-off mood, afternoon
N.Korea jitters. Kyodo said Jpn earlier received radio signals suggesting NKorea
preparing for missile launch test; Kyodo said N.Korea satellite image did not
show missile or mobile launcher, Jpn did not specify type of possible NK
missile. 
- Quiet afternoon range after good $34B 5Y auction: 2.066% rate, 65.8%
indirects, good 11.4% directs, small 22.8% dealers. Mixed 2Y auction 1.765%
rate, soft 41.2% indirects but good 16.99% directs, so large 41.9% for dealers. 
- Tsys futures volume artificially heavy: large pick-up in rolling from Dec to
March futrs into Thu first notice date (Mar top step, Dec expires mid/late Dec)
* Early flow: large 10Y futrs block buy: +22.9k TYH, 124-24 helping spur gains;
FX-tied bid as US$ weak v. yen, Bund-tied aid. But Tsys digested pre-auctions
shorts and rate-locks into 2Y, 5Y sales, busy high-grade corp bd issuance. Fast$
and prop acct buys before rates reversed early gain; Mar 10Y-ultra Blck
sale(-7.9k, 133-30) spurred sales. TSYS 3PM ET:2Y 1.745%, 3Y 1.837%, 5y 2.047%,
7y 2.213%, 10Y 2.328%, 30Y 2.765%
