12:40 EDTTreasury 7-year auction outlook:
Treasury 7-year auction outlook: there's a cautious tone going into the offering, especially after yesterday's soft bid. Also, the note is expected to tail slightly, as has been a trend for this maturity, and given the recent price swings. The concession should help bring marginal buyers off the sidelines. The wi climbed over 4 bps to challenge 1.78% today and has been as low as 1.66%. Yet, a stop here would be the second richest since May 2013. On the positive side, the auction could benefit from concerns over geopolitical risks, as well as from month-, quarter-, and Japan's fiscal year-end flows. Sources also remind that the note has often rallied post auction into month-end. The February auction was on the soft side with a 1.834% stop, a 2.37 cover (2.51 average), but a solid 52.3% indirect bid (48.8% average). Direct bidders accepted 10.5%, while primary dealers were awarded 37.1%.

10:15 EDTTreasury 7-year auction outlook
Treasury 7-year auction outlook: the $29 B sale completes this week's auctions after yesterday's poor 5-year sale offset Tuesday's solid 2-year offering. Traders contacted are concerned that today's results will be again be on the disappointing side. The wi trades at 1.765% which is the top of the range from a 1.66% low. Nevertheless, a stop there would be the second richest yield since May 2013, and that may be a limiting factor. These auctions also have a tendency to tail. On the other hand, risk-off flows could give some support, along with some front running of month- and quarter-end (fiscal year-end for Japan) trades. Barclays' estimates its index extension at 0.09 years. The note also often rallies after the auction into month-end. The February auction was on the soft side with a 1.834% stop, a 2.37 cover (2.51 average), but a solid 52.3% indirect bid (48.8% average). Direct bidders accepted 10.5%, while primary dealers were awarded 37.1%.
