Treasuries Fall on Higher Eurozone Inflation

June 30, 2017 - Morningstar

 

U.S. Treasuries lost ground in sympathy with losses in European government bonds today following reports of faster-than-expected inflation in Germany. The European Central Bank said on Wednesday that investors had misinterpreted ECB President Draghi's Tuesday remarks by sending interest rates higher, but markets were not impressed. The sentiment driving trading activity is that holders of government bonds should get ready for hikes from the Bank of England and the ECB, even if the Fed might pause its rate-hike cycle until 2018. A relief rally in oil has also dampened sentiment for U.S. Treasuries as did an upward revision to Q1 real GDP growth (1.4% SAAR vs. second estimate of 1.2%). Treasuries did end above their worst levels, however, because the S&P 500 fell 0.84% to 2,420.3 and generated a flight-to-quality bid. The U.S. Dollar Index is down 0.40% to 95.63.

Yield Check:
2-yr: +1 bp to 1.37%;
5-yr: +2 bps to 1.85%;
10-yr: +4 bps to 2.27%;
30-yr: +3 bps to 2.82%.
