May 12, 2015
10:50 EDTEuro$ interest rate futures are quite mixed
Euro$ interest rate futures are quite mixed with the near-dates making up some lost ground as stocks remain heavy, but the deferreds remain underwater on the mini-margin call tantrum on bonds of late. The December 2015 contract is 1-tick higher at 99.405, while the deferreds range from +1 tick higher to 3.5-ticks lower out the curve. SF Fed dove Williams is due later, but is likely to reprise his fairly upbeat views on the economy, which won't necessarily offer much relief to the rate complex.

09:20 EDTTreasury 3-year auction outlook: the auction could be sloppy
Treasury 3-year auction outlook: the auction could be sloppy given the big price moves of late. And demand could be somewhat limited amid the massive global disgorging in bonds, though most of the weakness has been at the long end. Indeed, some trading sources believe the big run up in rates should bring in decent demand. The wi 3-year rate surged over 5 bps in Asian action overnight to hit 1.065%, but it's faded to 1.040% currently. It traded as rich as 0.93% on Friday. Supporting the auction should be this concession. A stop here would be one of the cheapest this year, though it traded as high as 1.104% in March. Also there is a $3 B paydown for the entire refunding, so there is a lot of money being put back to work. The 3-year is the tightest issue in repo at -1.54%. Fed rate liftoff expectations have also been pushed back from June. Many may also want to own this issue versus the 10s or 30s, on sale Wednesday and Thursday, respectively. Indirect bidding should remain solid, especially with negative yields on many short dated European notes.However, the selloff and the liquidity issues may leave some potential buyers sidelined. The April note sold at 0.865% and garnered a 3.25 cover (3.29 average) and a 49.4% indirect bid (39.1%).

08:20 EDTEnergy Action: NYMEX crude took its lead from a weaker dollar
Energy Action: NYMEX crude took its lead from a weaker dollar, and rallied back over $60/bbl, touching $60.51 highs, after closing the N.Y. session on Monday near $59.20. The rally comes despite an estimated global over-supply of nearly 2 M bpd, with sources saying gains will be difficult to hold on to. In fact, WTI prices over $60 will bring marginal U.S. shale producers back on line, exacerbating the supply glut. RBOB gasoline futures meanwhile, are up nearly 5 cents/gallon, approaching $2.03, leaving U.S. average retail prices at $2.66/gallon, up three cents from a week ago, and up 27 cents from a month ago, according to AAA data. Natural gas futures are back down to $2.84/M BTU, after making nearly three-month highs over $2.93 on Monday.
