15:05 EDTTreasury Closing Summary:
Treasury Closing Summary: Bond yields backed up sharply to resume the shortened week on Tuesday, amid counterveiling reports about an extension deal with Greek debt. Otherwise, the data wasn't that impressive considering the Empire State index sank as did the NAHB housing market index. Fed hawk Mester said on Monday that a June hike remained a viable option, while retiring hawk Plosser skirted the issue.

12:55 EDTTreasury Option Action: some bearish positioning
Treasury Option Action: some bearish positioning cropped up as well on 10-year futures, more in keeping with the defensive tone today, though sources characterized activity overall as sluggish. Among the larger trades were buyers of 5k in April 127/126.5/125 put trees, 5k in April 127/126 put spreads, and 6k in April 127/125/123 put butterflies. On the bullish side were buyers of 8k in June 130 calls, 3k in April 129+/131 call spreads and 3k in week 4 127/128 calls 1x1.5s. Also there were bullish sellers of 5k in April 126+/125 put spreads and 5k in April 127/126 put spreads. March 10s are 27-ticks lower now near 127-14 compared to their 128-14 to 127-11 range.
11:55 EDTTreasury's $52 B 3- and 6-month bill sale was ok
Treasury's $52 B 3- and 6-month bill sale was ok with the longer dated tranche outperforming. The $26 B 3-month bill stopped 0.015%, right on screws, and fractionally richer than last week's 0.02%. There were $106.8 B in bids for 4.13 cover, versus the prior 4.44 and a 4.25 average. Indirect bidders took only 13.5%, only about one-third of last week's 39.4%. The $26 B 6-month bill stopped at 0.065%, also right on the bid at the deadline, but 2 bps below last week's award rate. Bids totaled $113.3 B for a 4.39 cover, down from 4.43 previously, but better than the 4.15 average. Indirect bidders accepted 42.7%, consistent with the prior 47.3%, and better than the 36.7% average.

11:15 EDTTreasury Option Action: some bullish positioning
Treasury Option Action: some bullish positioning included a purchase of 2k in March 129/130 call spreads, definitely against the grain of the sell-off on underlying March 10s, which are some 18-ticks lower near 127-215 compared to a range of 128-14 to 127-185. Stocks appear immune to setbacks on Ukraine and Greece, while bearish momentum on 10-year futures continues.

10:00 EDTTreasury Action: the bond market is treading cautiously
Treasury Action: the bond market is treading cautiously as fundamentals seem to have gone by the wayside for now. Neither Greek uncertainties, continued violence in Ukraine, nor some weakness in equities are motivating much safe-haven buying. Treasuries also are seeing little demand from overseas accounts despite further widening in credit spreads, which continues to baffle many strategists, who are still looking at curve flattening trades as well. The potential for a June Fed rate hike are keeping some sidelined ahead of the FOMC minutes and next week's "Humphrey-Hawkins" testimony from Yellen. A hefty corporate calendar has weighed recently, but today's slate is limited. The 10-year Treasury yield has edged up to 2.05%, with the bond at 2.66%, the highest since the start of the year.
