New Supply is Coming Home
It will be a slow start to the week in G10 FX on account of a multitude of hangovers in London.
The economic calendar is generous to football fans with little on the agenda in terms of economic data. The event to watch will be the 1300 GMT sale of 10-year notes.
One of the theories about the drop in yields last week was a lack of new supply due to quirks on the Treasury calendar and the looming debt ceiling. That will be relieved with $38B on sale in a reopening followed by $24B in 30s on Tuesday.
Recent sales have been strong but that was +15 bps ago. Whether it's lower or higher yields, expect the sale to set the tone for the week.The other move that caught markets off guard last week was China's cut to the RRR. To be sure, officials foreshadowed the move but most China-watchers thought they were teeing up a move in late summer. For the real economy, a sooner move and one that delivers it to all banks (rather than rumored small banks) is undoubtedly stimulative. The risk is that it hints at panic or an economy that's slowing too quickly. So far the market reaction has ben positive but the Chinese consumer has been surprisingly sluggish and that could eventually spook global markets.
