11:10 EDTTreasury announced a $90 B package of short date coupon auctions
Treasury announced a $90 B package of short date coupon auctions for next week. This includes a $26 B 2-year sale (Tuesday), a $35 B 5-year (Wednesday), and a $29 B 7-year (Thursday), all unchanged from prior months. Debt managers also outlined a $13 B 2-year FRN reopening (Wednesday) and a $48 B 3- and 6-month bill offering (Monday). Supply is likely to encourage curve flattening trades, especially if the market reprices for a September Fed rate hike.

10:45 EDTU.S. VIX finally broke out from its range top
U.S. VIX finally broke out from its range top of 16.28 and headed to session highs over 17.0. Given the latest 1% slide in the S&P 500 to the 2,054 area, the break of 16.28 could led to a run at July highs of 20.05, having already taken out the 15.46 50% retrace of the 20.05-10.88 July peak to August trough. The underlying S&P 500 below its 200-day m.a. of 2,077.9 once again now faces 2,052 lows set on the China devaluation. Though bearish follow-through has been lacking on previous minor corrections, the S&P has been in a narrowing pennant pattern, which can precede a more aggressive breakout. If to the downside, that speaks to risk of a 20.0 test on the VIX.

The 2s-10s spread has narrowed to +143 bp compared to wides over +150 bp earlier in the week. The 5-year yield has slumped to 1.48% and the cash bond yield to 2.77%. The long-end is pacing the move, playing catch-up to the short-end outperformance yesterday.

U.S. Leading Indicators Preview: The July leading indicators index is expected to decline 0.2% (median 0.2%) following a 0.6% increase in June. Recent strength in housing permits has lent strength to the index, but the unwind revealed in the July housing starts report will likely pull the LEI down from recent strength.

Note, that Bloomberg is reporting Citi analyst William Lee saying the market "got it all wrong" and the Fed will still hike in September.
