Treasury Prices Gain


From Standard & Poor's Equity ResearchAction Economics (10/17/07 10:23 am ET): Treasury prices are jumping and yields slumping following earlier reports of a shift out of Bunds and into Treasuries, which got the ball rolling. Sources now report some light buy-stops being triggered on the Dec 10-year future after it crossed back above 109-00, reportedly tripping buy-stops from 109-02 to 109-05. That has coincided with the cash T-note yield diving back below 4.60% from 4.645% at the open. Sources also note that the curve has flattened again, with the 2s-10s back at +51 bp from +53 bp following the data, while the 2s-30s spread has narrowed toward +75 bp as well, so the move seems to be driven by the long-end after tame core CPI.
