Treasuries Rally


From S&P MarketScope: Treasuries rallied in the wake of a wider-than-expected $58.82 billion June trade deficit and disappointing August preliminary University of Michigan consumer sentiment of 92.7. The data signaled, for some, less pressure on the Fed to tighten monetary policy aggressively.

Plus, a spike in September West Texas Intermediate crude oil to a record NYMEX closing high of $66.86 prompted some flight to safety given concerns of an adverse impact on the economy.

The 10-year note climbed 13/32 to 100-02/32 for a yield of 4.24%. The 30-year bond surged 36/32 to 114-02/32 for a yield of 4.47%.

Stocks were broadly lower as bond trading closed. The dollar was mixed as short covering following the recent rally offset the weak June trade data.
