US TSY SUMMARY: Choppy trade in the first half for rates with Tsys trading close
to session lows after the closing bell. Yld curves at new 3Y highs amid better
selling w/accts off sidelines ahead of Fri's headline May employment data. USD
stronger for first time in a couple weeks, equity off lows late (ESM0 -7.0
around 3110.7). 
- Little react to weekly claims (1.877M) but a lot of unwinds and open interest
declining last couple sessions. Knock-on selling in EGBs, GGBs spilled over to
Tsys; likelihood of more stimulus weighing. 
- Contributing to latest directional bear steepening as 10Y broke appr 2M range:
1) Exp of yld curve control probably in short end within next five years
(Mester). 2) Rebound in equities (no V or sideways L, more like the Nike swish
logo) evaporates buying riskless long-end assets. 3) Mild) increase in infln
expns: ULC 5.1%, UofM exps, rising oil. 4) one desk suggests Tiananmen Sq anniv
"is center of a lot of long end callable..move is global." 
- The 2-Yr yield is up 0.2bps at 0.192%, 5-Yr is up 3.3bps at 0.3989%, 10-Yr is
up 6.4bps at 0.8102%, and 30-Yr is up 8bps at 1.6109%.
TECHNICALS:
US 10YR FUTURE TECHS: (U0) Eyeing April Lows
*RES 4: 140-27   0.618 projection of Feb 6 - Mar 9 rally from Mar 18 low
*RES 3: 140-00   Round number resistance 
*RES 2: 139-25   Contract high, Mar 25
*RES 1: 139-13+/16  High May 15 / High Apr 21 and key resistance  
*PRICE: 137-23+ @ 16:01 BST, Jun 04
*SUP 1: 137-22   Low Jun 4
*SUP 3: 137-19+ Low Apr 14
*SUP 3: 137-06+ 50% March Sell-Off
*SUP 4: 136-20   Low Mar 25
10yr futures slipped further Thursday, taking out the base of the recent risk
range at 137-30+. This pressures the medium-term outlook, betraying the
until-now bullish outlook. This exposes the early April lows and key support at
137-19+ and the 50% Fib below at 137-06+. To repair the upside argument, bulls
need to take out 139-16, Apr 21 high to confirm a resumption of the uptrend to
target 139-25, Mar 25 contract high and the 140-00 handle.
AUSSIE 3-YR TECHS: (U0) Weak 
*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: 99.695 @ 16:09 BST Jun 04
*SUP 1: 99.690 - Low Mar 27
*SUP 2: 99.645 - Low Mar 20
*SUP 3: 99.580 - 100-dma
The short-end of the Aussie bond market held the lower-end of the recent range
Thursday. 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) Stumbling
*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: 98.9000 @ 16:10 BST, Jun 04
*SUP 1: 98.7800 - Low Mar 23 
*SUP 2: 98.7210 - 61.8% March Sell-off
*SUP 3: 98.5700 - Low Mar 20 
The outlook deteriorated further Thursday, with Aussie 10yr bonds slipping
alongside global bond markets. 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.
On the upside, key resistance is located at 99.2250, the Apr 17 high. Clearance
of this level would instead be bullish.
JGB TECHS: (U0): Sinking 
*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: 151.50 @ 16:16 BST, Jun 04
*SUP 1: 151.06 - Low Mar 24
*SUP 2: 150.61 - Low Mar 19 and key support
*SUP 3: 150.57 - 1.0% 10-dma envelope
JGB took another leg lower amid a global bond sell-off Thursday, exposing levels
not seen since March. The range breakout works in favour of bears, with 50% Fib
retracement giving way in the process. Key supports are few and far between
until 151.06, but more importantly 150.61, which marks the March sell-off low.
