US Treasuries See Profit Taking, US Dollar At 13 Month Highs

10-Yr: -20/32..2.416%.. USD/JPY: 105.15.. EUR/USD: 1.3127

It was a down day for the US Treasury market that followed course with European sovereign bond markets.

The 10-yr T-Note finished on its low for the day.

Selling pressure was seen across the curve, although longer-dated securities bore the brunt of the selling interest

2-yr Note +3 bps to 0.52%
10-yr Note +7 bps to 2.42%
30-yr Bond +9 bps to 3.17%

The reason for the weakness fell along the following lines: an unwinding of some safe-haven trades following a holiday weekend that did not feature a flare-up of geopolitical conflict, and profit taking following a big run of late.

US Dollar (.DXY) Index +0.2% to 82.98

  • USD/JPY at 105.15 (+0.8%) with the Yen hitting its weakest marks Vs. the Buck since January
  • EUR/USD at 1.3127, looking at its weakest mark since September 2013.

Stay tuned…
