Treasury Market Outlook: Treasuries are a little higher, in tandem with gains across global sovereigns overnight, and amid a sea of red in equities. The 30-year bond is outperforming, dropping 3 bps to 2.47%, just off record lows of 2.454% from July 2012. The 10-year yield fell to 1.85%, the lowest since May 2013. Helping underpin bonds was the drop in copper which fell to prices not seen since July 2009. Also, the European Court of Justice gave a thumbs up to QE from the ECB, indicating asset buying was legal "in principle." Peripheral bonds are outperforming in Europe, while the Bund is down over 3 bps to 0.44%. Meanwhile, the weakness in commodities continues to drag equities lower. Today's data on December retail sales will be closely monitored, along with import and export prices and business inventories. The MBA reported mortgage applications surged a massive 49.1% on a pick-up in refinancings. The Treasury reopens $13 B in 30-year bonds. And the Fed will release its Beige Book for the January 27, 28 policy meeting. The hawkish Fed president Plosser speaks on the economy.
