July 14, 2014
13:05 EDTEuro$ interest rate options: more bearish positioning
Euro$ interest rate options: more bearish positioning included a 9k purchase of Gold December 65 puts, while there was also a sale of 4k in Blue December 72 strangles (volatility). September 2014 contracts are still flat at 99.76, while the deferreds 1-4.5 ticks lower, continuing to inch lower as risk aversion abates, stocks gain and markets brace for Yellen.
12:50 EDTU.S. corporate debt: a 3-trancher from Bed, Batch & Beyond
U.S. corporate debt: a 3-trancher from Bed, Batch & Beyond will include 10-, 20- and 30-year legs (guidance +125 bp, +160 bp, +185 bp respectively), while Bank of Nova Scotia has a 2-trancher of 3- and 7-year maturities (+40 bp, +70 bp). Other investment grade deals on deck are a $284 M 22-year deal from CVS Caremark, a $250 M 40-year bond from Mutual of Omaha, a 2-year note via Toronto-Dominion and a $250 M perpetual from Wells Fargo. In the high yield sector there's a 3-trancher from American Energy of 5-, 7- and 8-year maturities and a slew of intermediate offerings from Cardtronics, Dryships, Infinity, Light Tower, McGraw-Hill, among others. Look for some light hedging and unwinds related to these deals to add some chop to underlying Treasuries and futures, though Yellen's midweek testimony will keep a lid on the price action for now.

Upside Risk for U.S. Retail Sales in June: Analysts expect solid 0.6% June gains in headline and ex-auto retail sales, with upside risk signaled by continued strength in chain store sales, a new cycle high for vehicle sales, a likely further climb in building material sales, a 2%-3% June gasoline price pop, and an upward Q2 tilt in consumer confidence with support from rising stock market valuations.
