5year auction today

Those who have been keeping track of the amazing bear flattening in rates in the past week will probably not be surprised by the result. Everyone else will surely like to know that it just cost the US the most to sell 2 year paper since May of 2011, which at a high yield of 0.469% was the highest yield since May of 2012, or before the great rotation out of stocks and into bond began.

And thanks to the "dots" expect to see the yield on short-dated paper to continue rising, even as the long-end drops further in an epic flattening which is sure to crush bank Net Interest Margins. It also explains why nobody talks about it on CNBC any more: after all what is there to say?

Treasury Sells 2 Year Paper At Highest Yield Since May 2011

look... the FED gang is in only its 3rd "taper" of its flooding the market with trillion-dollar/yr. There is a reason the FED gang's trumpets keep repeating that tapering is not tightening and that they will remain "easy": likely trying to forestall stox from puking.

IF stox were to puke it would not be unreasonable for bonds to pop up in reaction. I would consider that a mother of selling opp. You ?

Depends JP. Taper, stock market correction.... lower bond yields. Not necessarily a disaster for the administration.

Mtl JP  10:15:41 GMT - 03/26/2014  
the stock market can not be reacting as u think it should... because if it did it would stop the FED gang from tapering

Paris ib  10:04:40 GMT - 03/26/2014  
No not wrong, inevitable. What surprises me is the reaction of the stock market.

Mtl JP  09:45:34 GMT - 03/26/2014  
ib 09:29 u r suggesting it is wrong for bond market to spank the Fed and stox holders. why not prepare to back up the truck instead ?

Paris ib  09:29:26 GMT - 03/26/2014  
Yields are moving higher no doubt. Am I the only one who thinks that given massive government debt levels this might not be a good thing?

Thanks Nic. Something slightly weird is going on with Treasuries at the moment but I can't figure out what it is. ;-)

Hi Ib,
the 32 B$ auction was labelled as an average one by "The auction drew 0.469% (0.471% when issued) and a 3.20x bid/cover. A strong indirect bid (40.9%) provided support as directs (21.5%) saw an average takedown. Primary dealers ended with 37.6% of the supply. The complex saw little reaction to the in-line auction with maturities trading in a tight range near their respective flat lines for the remainder of the session."

2-yr 0.469%
bid to cover 3.20 vs. 3.60
so-so auction

Does anyone have any details of what happened with the 2 year auction yesterday. I didn't note much news but the 2 year paper is off considerably this morning, yields gapping higher - which suggests the paper didn't find a very safe home right off the bat. Another auction today, then tomorrow.... getting interesting.
