US TSY FLOWS: Tsys trading mildly weaker/off lows after decent $27B 10Y auction
(9128285M8), trades through/awarded 3.209% rate (3.225% in October; 3.111% avg)
vs. 3.218% WI; 2.54 bid/cover (2.39 previous).
- Early Tsy support evaporated as equities opened bid, held gains into midday,
but support tenuous during Midterm elections. Reports of large equity sell
imbalances induced late chop as stocks pared gains, Tsys inched off lows, late
position squaring.
- Otherwise, early two-way flow turned better selling by prop, fast- and real$
in 5s-10s. Midterm election risk-event buoys implied vol in at-the-money 5- and
10Y options read higher on the day. Better put volume on net, calls more
