US TSY SUMMARY: Rates chopped to session highs after the closing bell Wednesday,
largely virus and political headline driven on an otherwise thin participation
session.
- Virus case levels helped spur several rounds of de-risking earlier in the
first half. Support evaporated past midday but bounced after the 20Y R/O note
auction traded through (awarded 1.312%). Late risk-off pushed futures back to
top of the range (headlines from former Trump Admin Bolton alleged Trump asked
China Pres Xi for help in re-election). 
- Early risk-off as Texas virus related hospitalization continue to rise.
Two-way flow on net w/decent volumes, sources reported fast$ buying 5s and 10s
recently, deal-tied selling into bounce. 
- Fed Chair Powell re-read prepared testimony to House Fncl Services Comm. Aside
from deal- and pre-auction hedging and light option related flow, modest pick-up
in selling intermediates-long end as equities rebound higher briefly.
- The 2-Yr yield is down 0.8bps at 0.1912%, 5-Yr is down 0.8bps at 0.336%, 10-Yr
is down 2.6bps at 0.7265%, and 30-Yr is down 2.5bps at 1.5179%.
TECHNICALS:
US 10YR FUTURE TECHS: (U0) Bullish Focus   
*RES 4: 139-25   Contract high, Mar 25
*RES 3: 139-13+ 16  High May 15 / High Apr 21 and key resistance
*RES 2: 139-07+ High Jun 1
*RES 1: 139-03+ High Jun 11
*PRICE: 138-16+ @ 16:42 BST, Jun 17
*SUP 1: 137-22   Low Jun 10 
*SUP 2: 136-22   Low Jun 5 and the bear trigger 
*SUP 3: 136-20   Low Mar 25
*SUP 4: 136-10+ 2.000 projection of Apr 21 - May 6 swing from May 15 high
10yr futures continue to trade below recent highs. The outlook is unchanged and
remains bullish. The focus is on 139-07+, Jun 1 high where a break would erase a
recent bearish theme and open 139-13+ and 139-16, the May 22 and Apr 21 highs
respectively ahead of major resistance at 139-25. This is the contract high from
Mar 25. For bears to regain control, prices need to clear support at 136-22, May
6 low.
AUSSIE 3-YR TECHS: (U0) Floor in For Now 
*RES 3: 100.00 - Handle Psychological Resistance
*RES 3: 99.840 - Range projection on a break of 99.780
*RES 1: 99.780 - High Apr 01 and bull trigger 
*PRICE: 99.720 @ 16:43 BST Jun 17 
*SUP 1: 99.690 - Low Mar 27 / Jun 05
*SUP 2: 99.645 - Low Mar 20
*SUP 3: 99.621 - 100-dma
The short-end of the Aussie bond market holds in the middle of the recent range.
The contract continues to trade within a range that has been in place since
peaking at 99.780 on Apr 1. A break of this resistance is required to confirm a
resumption of the broader uptrend and open 99.840, the range projection and the
100.00 psychological level further out. The base of the range expanded lower at
the futures roll, now sitting at 99.695 and marks the key near-term support.
AUSSIE 10-YR TECHS: (U0) Bulls Untroubled For Now
*RES 3: 99.4850 - High Mar 10 and bull trigger
*RES 2: 99.3600 - High Apr 01 
*RES 1: 99.2250 - High Apr 17 
*PRICE: 99.0600 @ 16:44 BST, Jun 17
*SUP 1: 98.7800 - Low Mar 23 
*SUP 2: 98.7210 - 61.8% March Sell-off
*SUP 3: 98.5700 - Low Mar 20 
Aussie 10yr futures held the upper end of the recent range into the Monday
close, firming the bounce from the Jun08 low. Key resistance is located at
99.2250, the Apr 17 high. Clearance of this level would instead be bullish. To
the downside, having taken out key support at 99.0200, the Apr 9 low, bears now
target late March lows at 98.90 and the Fib support at 98.7210.
JGB TECHS: (U0): 50-dma in Sight
*RES 3: 154.56 - High Mar 13 
*RES 2: 153.50 - High Mar 16
*RES 1: 153.06 - High Mar 31 and key resistance
*PRICE: 152.04 @ 16:46 BST, Jun 17
*SUP 1: 151.06 - Low Mar 24
*SUP 2: 150.61 - Low Mar 19 and key support
*SUP 3: 150.41 - 1.0% 10-dma envelope
JGBs rallied well last week, but have faltered slightly over the first two
sessions this week. Nonetheless, prices remain close to the best levels but just
shy of the 50-dma at 152.23. A rally through here would be bullish, targeting
153.06 initially. Key supports are few and far between until 151.06, but more
importantly 150.61, which marks the March sell-off low.
TSY FUTURES CLOSE: Moderately bid across the curve, very near mid-morning highs
after a choppy session w/thin participation. Yld curves see-sawed on day,
flatter after a couple round trips on the choppy session. Update:
