Treasury Action: yields arced lower
Treasury Action: yields arced lower with the deepening rout on Wall Street to blame, before getting caught in liquidation trade as well that put a floor under yields again late in the session. Fed's Kashkari was predictably dovish, while the third tier data was mixed (LMCI and NIFB lower). Supply and volatility makes for a toxic mix, however, with elevated yields tempting more durable breakout higher after recent sedation. The 2-year yield rebounded from 0.858% lows to highs of 0.875%; the 5-year yield rolled over from 1.312% to 1.28% before topping 1.29% again; the 10-year yield slumped from highs of 1.781% to lows of 1.744% before rebounding over 1.75%; and the 30-year yield hit 2.516% earlier, slumped to 2.478%, then bounced over 2.49%. The 7-year is outperforming, but the net yield rise on the day is a pretty even 2-3 basis points along the curve. The 2s-10s spread steadied at +89 bp, while the 5s-30s spread settled near +120 bp.
