13:15 EDTTreasury's $29 B 2-year sale was average, plain vanilla
Treasury's $29 B 2-year sale was average, plain vanilla. The note stopped at 0.544%, barely through the 0.545% at the bid deadline. Though it was the cheapest level since 2009, bidding was lackluster. There were $93.4 B in bids for a 3.22 cover, little changed from last month's 3.23 and a little below the 3.36 average, despite the $1 B cut in size. Indirect bidders took 27.0% compared to June's 23.1% and a 26.6% average. Direct bidders took 14.3% versus 23.3% previously, while primary dealers were awarded 58.7% versus June's 53.6%.

12:50 EDTTreasury 2-year auction preview: traders are uncertain about demand
Treasury 2-year auction preview: traders are uncertain about demand at today's offering given the balance of pros and cons. There is some concern that despite many positives underpinning the offering, the advent of the FOMC and the increased talk that the Fed might have to pull the trigger sooner than expected and subsequently hike rates more aggressively than the gradualist approach policymakers currently anticipate, could leave some buyers sidelined. Nevertheless, sources like the back up in yield and the cheapness on the curve. The wi has edged up to 0.545% which would be the highest stop since May 2011. The 2s-10s is the narrowest its been since 2009. Geopolitical risks are also high and favor some flight to quality. Plus, new cash needs are very low this week with very large redemptions on tap that should underpin reinvestment demand. And though the note shouldn't benefit directly from the month-end flows, duration buying could support the entire curve. June's sale stopped at 0.511% and garnered a 3.23 cover (3.36 average) and a 23.1% indirect bid (26.6% average).
12:30 EDTU.S. corporate debt: a 3-trancher from Tyco
U.S. corporate debt: a 3-trancher from Tyco topped the investment grade calendar with 2-, 5- and 10-year legs, while Credit Suisse has a 2-trancher of 3- and 5-year maturities. Also on tap are a $823 M 12-year from United Airlines, a 3-year from PNC, $500 M 10-year from EQT and $400 M 10-year by Air Products. Several intermediate high yield offerings are on the docket as well, including names such Jupiter, NRG, Paperworks, Rooster Energy, United Airlines, etc. Focus will remain on the $29 B 2-year auction, though any hedging and unwinds on the larger corporate deals could impact the price action near-term.

10:30 EDTFX Action: The dollar has been relatively steady
FX Action: The dollar has been relatively steady since the release of PMI and pending home sales data, with EUR-USD static between 1.3430-40, and USD-JPY looking heavier, through not straying far from the 101.80 level. Given the heavy event schedule later in the week, analysts may be in for a slow couple of FX session. The FOMC meeting, the first look at Q2 GDP, along with nonfarm payrolls for July are all on tap this week, so current conditions may well be the calm before the storm.
10:10 EDTU.S. pending home sales index dropped 1.1% to 102.7 in June
U.S. pending home sales index dropped 1.1% to 102.7 in June after rising 6.0% to 103.8 in May (revised from 103.9). Regionally, pending sales declined in the Northeast and the South by over 2%, while the Midwest saw a 1.2% increase, with the West edging up 0.2%. Compared to last June, the sales index is down 4.5% y/y versus -6.9% y/y. The annual sales pace has contracted since October, though the rate has been slowing since April.
