BOND SUMMARY: White House Advisor Navarro's own take on Chinese whispers,
surrounding comments where he appeared to deem the Sino-U.S. trade deal as
"over", was the only game in town in Asia-Pac hours. The initial round of
comments drove risk-off market flows, before pushback from Messrs Navarro,
Kudlow and Trump re: what was meant by the comments/denial that such a statement
was true allowed risk to recover. This has generally biased core FI markets
lower in the second half of the Asia-Pac session, with news flow light
- T-Notes unchanged at 138-22+ at typing, with volume nearing an impressive
200K, while yields sit unchanged to 0.7bp richer across the curve.
- The Aussie curve has been a little more biased towards steepening during
Sydney hours, perhaps in reaction to Monday's risk-on price action in NY hours,
with some A$ corporate issuance also in the mix. YM -1.0, XM -4.0.
- JGB futures hover around unchanged levels, with outperformance in the shorter
end/belly allowing some twist steepening of the cash curve.
