16:44 EDTMoody's affirms U.K. 'Aa1' rating; Outlook stable
Moody's Investors Service has affirmed the UK's government bond rating at Aa1 and maintained a stable outlook. Moody's decision to affirm the UK's rating follows the outcome of the referendum on Scottish independence, which maintains the 307-year-old union, thereby preserving the country's current institutional and fiscal framework. While the political process going forward will likely lead to further devolution of powers to Scotland and some changes in the fiscal transfers, the rating agency does not anticipate that these will have a material impact on the quality of the UK's institutions, or its financial strength. Indeed, as Moody's indicated in May, the strength of the UK's credit profile would not have changed materially in the event of Scottish independence and therefore such an event would have likely been rating neutral.

12:30 EDTTreasury Action: supply next week could weigh on the front end of the curve
Treasury Action: supply next week could weigh on the front end of the curve, especially since the bond market is more defensive after the hawkish Dot Plot from the FOMC. The Treasury is selling $93 B in notes next week, including $29 B in 2-year paper, $35 B in 5s, and $29 B in 7s. When-issued yields are little changed this morning to lower currently, but the surge higher following Wednesday's Fed result has the 2-year rate testing 0.62% and the 5-year challenging 1.86%, both of which would be the highest stops in over 3 years. The wi 7-year is at 2.305%, having tested 2.335% (close to April's stop). Despite this run-up, yields may not attract strong domestic demand given the Fed is moving inexorably toward normalization. Many traders are also forecasting still higher rates with the 2-year projected to hit 0.70% and the 5-year at 2.0% before buyers come back. However, foreign investors should again support the auctions given short dated German yields are negative, while Japanese rates are near 0%. Meanwhile, curve strategies are difficult given uncertainty over the trajectory of the normalization process.

10:55 EDTEuro$ interest rate options: another heavy round
Euro$ interest rate options: another heavy round of trading has been the rule in the wake of the FOMC statement, higher dots and policy normalization crib sheet this week, though the price action has been relatively muted so far today. Among multiple packages there was a sale of 40k in November 68/71 put spreads against purchases of 10k in November 65/67 put spreads and 20k in 76/77 put spreads. This was thought to be a liquidation of upper strikes to put on purchases of the lower strikes to hedge against a deeper sell-off on the less benign interest rate outlook. There were others, including a sale of 10k in Blue December 72/73 call 1x2s, thought to be a roll-up to a higher strike. Also, a purchase of 40k in Green December 81/82/83/85 call condors was cited over the session. The December 2014 contract is a half-tick higher at 99.75, while the deferreds are mixed today, 0.5-1.0 ticks lower nearby, but 0.5-4.0 ticks firmer further out.

10:15 EDTTreasury Action: yields backed up from lows
Treasury Action: yields backed up from lows following the opening pop in stocks, which were bolstered by the Baba IPO, while the as expected modest increase on the LEI left little discernable mark on the rate complex. Alibaba is indicated at $80-83 according to NYSE market makers compared to its $68 IPO price, but hasn't yet opened due to lack of sellers. The T-note yield reversed from lows of 2.6% to clear 2.62% again compared to overnight highs of 2.655%. The 2s-10s spread is holding at +204 bp.
