14:50 EDTCanada Retail Sales Preview
Canada Retail Sales Preview: Analysts expect retail sales, due Tuesday, to expand 0.5% in September after the unexpected 0.3% drop in August. The ex-autos sales aggregate is expected to grow 0.3% m/m in September after the 0.3% drop in August. Vehicle sales saw the best September on record, according to dealer sales, suggesting that vehicle sales will provide a boost to September retail sales. Gasoline prices only saw a modest dip, which should be more than offset by the stimulative impact of lower gas prices on consumption across the board. A rise in total sales would underpin the view that the August GDP pull-back was due to temporary factors, as Canada's underlying growth outlook remains for continued modest expansion. GDP is expected to rise 0.4% m/m in September after the 0.1% dip in August.
14:05 EDTTreasury Action: the rally in Treasuries following the strong 2-year auction
Treasury Action: the rally in Treasuries following the strong 2-year auction has knocked the wi 5-year yield down to 1.615%. It traded as cheap as 1.66% on Friday. The richening in the yield might present some difficulties for buyers, though probably not a lot. An award rate around 1.615% would be on the rich side of the year's 1.80% to 1.513% range. Overseas demand should continue to fuel good results, however, especially as spreads to core sovereigns could continue to widen out given the diverging policy paths between the FOMC, ECB, and BoJ. The October 5-year stopped at 1.567% and garnered a 2.36 cover (2.70 average) and a 47.8% indirect bid (47.4% average).
13:45 EDTEuro$ interest rate options: some large block trades
