Historic Market Test On Deck: Record $179BN In Treasurys For Sale Today...


As noted earlier, bonds fell and the dollar rose as Wall Street turned its attention to today's - and this week's - record bond supply - which as Goldman explained over the weekend , is just the start as the US set offs on an "unsustainable" increase in debt, and which this week consists of an unprecedented amount of 4-Week, 3- and 6-Month Bill issuance, as well as 2, 5, 7 and FRN notes to boot.

Today's selloff was driven by 2Y Treasuries which rose as high as 2.2436%, the highest level since just before the Lehman bankruptcy, while the eurodollar curve steepened too. Yields on 10Y bond rose to 2.93% earlier before fading half of the move.

Commenting on the sharp moves in yields, last week Jeff Gundlach noted that "UST 2 yr, 3 yr, 5 yr, 7 yr & now 10 yr yields all rising  >200 bp annual rate since 9/7/17. Faster than Fed hiking."
