11:10 EDTTreasury Option Action: still leaning to the bearish camp
Treasury Option Action: still leaning to the bearish camp more details are emerging from our sources, who note volatility now ticking up amid light flows and gamma/vol buying amid some limited downside trades. They also note with a wink that the 10-year straddle for Friday is trading at a 4.5 tic premium compared to the last 6 payroll week straddles, suggesting a higher degree of uncertainty heading into the report. Among the larger trades were bearish buyers of 4k in July 127/125.5/124 put butterflies and 1.5k in June 127/126 puts and bearish sale of 1k in July 130.5 calls.

10:30 EDTTreasury Option Action: some bearish positioning
Treasury Option Action: some bearish positioning emerged with sources citing demand for June 126 puts on 10-year futures, while noting that 5-year volatility came off somewhat this morning as well. June 10s are 6-ticks higher near 127-31, however, compared to a 128-015 to 127-19 range after rebounding from lows.
10:15 EDTU.S. factory orders climbed 2.1% in March
U.S. factory orders climbed 2.1% in March from a downwardly revised 0.1% February slip (was 0.2%). The 4.0% jump in durable orders from the Advance report was bumped to 4.4%. Transportation orders remained volatile, rising 13.5% after dropping 1.7% in February (revised from -3.3%), continuing the saw-toothed monthly pattern. Excluding transportation, orders were flat after a revised 0.1% uptick in February (was 0.8%). The poor showing in February and March numbers do little to counter the string of 4 consecutive declines from October through January. Nondefense capital goods orders excluding aircraft edged up 0.1% from -2.0% previously (revised from -1.1%). Shipments rose 0.5% after the 0.4% February gain (revised from 0.7%), with the nondefense capital goods excluding aircraft component sliding 0.4% after a 0.2% gain previously (revised from 0.3%). Inventories fell 0.2% after a flat February reading (revised from 0.1%). The inventory-shipment ratio was steady at 1.35. Headline orders data are close to market expectations, but the guts of the report weren't so great.

Janus' Gross published his May Investment Outlook entitled "A Sense of Ending" in referene to the great Bull Run in assets that began in 1981. He warns that the "new normal depends on the less than commonsensical notion that a global debt crisis can be cured with more and more debt.

Treasury Action: deflation fears are waning, and that seems to be one of the major factors contributing to the selloff in bonds and a bias toward curve steepeners last month. The 2s-30s gap widened beyond 220 bps last Friday for the first time since December 11, and the 2s-10s is out beyond 150 bps for the first time since March 6. Breakevens are widing too and have mostly recovered from the big deflation scare at the end of 2014. The rise in oil prices has gotten the ball rolling, while the 3rd consecutive 0.2% increase in U.S. core CPI in March got investors thinking.
