2. Hot Market Report: Next Round of Stimulus: Where are the 10 year Notes Headed?

SI futures;

This week’s highlighted Market is 10 yr Treasury Note Futures The US 10 year treasury note market belongs to the "interest rate family" 30 year, 5 year, 2 year notes, the "Ultra bond" and others. All traded on the CBOT exchange.

The open interest in the 10yr note market is dwarfed by few contracts, With a current OI in the front month ZNU20 at 3,452,000 today , this market dominates U.S. Treasury Futures contracts across the yield curve. When the stimulus cash dispersal again increases, we know the Fed will be buying most of the Treasury paper offered through the Thursday weekly auctions. Our U.S. Governments fiscal year end is less than 8 weeks away. Funding through the end of September for a variety of obligations is done through the issuance of new debt. This time of year with greater demand for Govt debt, the price of Ten Yr Notes ZNU20 should continue to increase. It appears this bull is waiting for congress to determine the next round of stimulus, The overnight margin is low relative to the contract size.

Continue watching the size of the weekly Treasury auctions (see this week's sizes). They'll be getting bigger. And watch the bid-to-covers on the longer dated issues. The question I ask is will the demand hold up for the longer-dated paper? This from Bloomberg yesterday “ The US Treasury expanded its plans for the issuance of longer-term debt in coming months, after depending mainly on shorter-dated bills to fund the federal government’s record spending surge to address the Covid-19 crisis. The department yesterday said it will issue a record $112bn of securities at next week’s so-called quarterly refunding of maturing Treasuries. Over the three months through October, it will ramp up issuance of nominal coupon-bearing debt by a total of $132bn compared with the previous quarter. The department plans to boost auction sizes across all nominal coupon tenors, with larger increases for the longer-dated securities maturing in seven to 30 years.”
