US Treasury yields tick lower amid trade war concerns

U.S. government debt prices were slightly higher Monday morning, amid trade tensions between the world’s two largest economies and concerns of slowing global economic growth.

At around 02:45 a.m. ET, the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note, which moves inversely to price, was lower at around 1.7223%, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond was also lower at around 2.2371%.

Market focus is largely attuned to simmering trade tensions between Washington and Beijing.

On Friday, President Donald Trump said he was not ready to make a deal with China and called into question the next round of trade talks. It comes after the U.S. president said he would impose a 10% tariff on the remaining $300 billion worth of Chinese imports on September 1. China responded by halting its purchases of U.S. agricultural products.

Last week, the U.S. accused China of being a currency manipulator after Beijing allowed the yuan to dip below the 7-per-dollar level for the first time in more than a decade.

On Monday, the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) set its daily midpoint for yuan trading — which determines the limits for its onshore movement — at 7.0211 per dollar. That was weaker than Friday’s session, but stronger than market expectations.

On the data front, the Federal Budget for July is expected to be published at around 2:00 p.m. ET.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Treasury is set to auction $42 billion in 13-week bills and $42 billion in 26-week bills.

Dollar flat, sterling, euro tick up with market in August lull

The U.S. dollar index was roughly flat on Monday and sterling and the euro saw a modest rise as the foreign exchange market fell into an August lull, a traditionally quiet trading period with many investors and traders on vacation. The British pound was 0.37% higher to trade at $1.208, with the euro up 0.17% against the dollar at $1.1219.

Dollar flat, sterling, euro tick up with market in August lull

The U.S. dollar index was roughly flat on Monday and sterling and the euro saw a modest rise as the foreign exchange market fell into an August lull, a traditionally quiet trading period with many investors and traders on vacation.

The British pound was 0.37% higher to trade at $1.208, with the euro up 0.17% against the dollar at $1.1219.

“It has been a pretty quiet day overall. We have had sterling and euro bubbling up. I don’t think there’s any particular super-positive news behind that. But, markets held substantial shorts in both currencies,” said Gregory Anderson, global head of foreign exchange strategy at BMO Capital Markets in New York.

The currency market is “heading into the deepest part of the holiday period. People are taking the shorts off and it puts upward pressure on both currencies. It’s probably the biggest story in FX for today.”

The dollar index was 0.1% lower at 97.390, having fallen earlier on expectations that a prolonged U.S.-China trade war would have a negative impact on American economic growth.

The Japanese yen rose to its highest against the dollar since March 2018 – barring a flash crash in January this year – as investors ramped up bets that the safe-haven currency could gain more if the trade conflict is prolonged. It was last 0.38% stronger against the dollar at 105.26.

“The stronger yen was at or near 2019 highs against its U.S. counterpart on prospects of a long drawn-out U.S.-China trade war. The longer the trade war drags on, the more likely it would weigh (on) the global outlook and crimp the world economy, a negative for market morale,” said Joe Manimbo, senior market analyst at Western Union Business Solutions.

Goldman Sachs analysts on Sunday said they no longer expected Washington and Beijing to come to a trade agreement before the 2020 presidential election. They lowered their forecast for fourth-quarter U.S. growth and said the chances a protracted trade war would lead to recession were rising.

This week, market attention will be on Chinese retail sales and industrial output for July, due out on Wednesday, to gauge the trade war’s impact on domestic activity.

Investors will also be focused on the U.S. Federal Reserve’s annual symposium at Jackson Hole, Wyoming, later this month, seeking greater clarity on the future path of interest rates. Markets are expecting two to three additional rate cuts from the Fed by the end of the year.

US Treasurys tick higher as investors await economic data

U.S. government debt prices were lower Tuesday morning, amid concerns an ongoing trade dispute between the world’s two largest economies could be extended and more economically damaging.

At around 02:05 a.m. ET, the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note, which moves inversely to price, was higher at around 2.1020%, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond was also higher at around 2.5577%.

Bond pros say the widely-watched 10-year yield could easily dip to 2% or below, after it touched 2.06% Monday, and J.P. Morgan Chase strategists say their target is now 1.75% for year end.

That forecast came as a number of Wall Street firms, including J.P. Morgan and Barclays switched their view to two Fed rate cuts this year, from none previously.

For context, the 10-year yield was at 2.55% at the beginning of May, and at the beginning of the year, many strategists believed the Fed would be raising interest rates this year, and the 10-year would be above 3%.

Comments from the Federal Reserve on Monday raised expectations that the U.S. central bank is moving closer to a rate cut.

St. Louis Federal Reserve president James Bullard said a U.S. interest rate cut “may be warranted soon ” given the rising risk to economic growth posed by global trade tensions as well as weak U.S. inflation.

On the data front, factory orders for April will be expected at around 10:00 a.m. ET.

There are no major Treasury bond auctions scheduled on Tuesday.

— CNBC’s Patti Domm contributed to this report.
