Daily Market Analysis

The 10 yr. note at 9 am ET 2.46% +6 bp, MBS price -34 bps. Since last Tuesday the 10 yield had declined to 2.32% from 2.50%, the consolidation is continuing, improvements though didn’t change the technical or fundamental outlook that rates are in bearish conditions. Inflation worries and rate-hike concerns got the best of Treasury holders as yields moved up across the curve. The 2s10s spread is no longer inverted, but remains close at just one basis point, and the U.S. Dollar Index is down 0.1% to 98.93.

The Feb US trade deficit expected -$88.8B, as reported -$89.2B. The key takeaway from the report is that it reflects a fractured trade situation that remains broken by COVID-related problems that have snarled supply chains and fueled economic imbalances.

At 9:30 am the DJIA opened -40, NASDAQ -46, S&P -7. 10 yr. at 9:30 am 2.46% +5 bp. FNMA 4.0 30 yr. coupon at 9:30 am -31 bps and 27 bps lower than 9:30 am yesterday.

At 10 am March ISM non-manufacturing index, expected at 58.6 from 56.5 in Feb, as reported the index at 58.3

Three Fed officials speaking today; at 10 am Neel Kashkari, Minneapolis Fed; at 11:05 am Lael Brainard, Fed governor, at 2 pm John Williams, NY Fed. Just in Lael Brainard in her prepared text said the Fed will move rapidly to increase rates and will have something to say about reducing the Fed balance sheet at the May 4th FOMC meeting, the reaction dropped the DJIA from +174 to unchanged, the NASDAQ and S&P also fell on her remarks.
