Treasury yields fall amid US-China trade talks

“There’s obviously an incentive for both sides to reach a deal,” James Athey, senior investment manager at Aberdeen Standard Investments, told CNBC’s “Squawk Box Europe” on Friday. “The problem is that you’re now getting to the more difficult part of the negotiation, which is things like the IP (intellectual property) problem.” One of President Donald Trump’s biggest contentions with Beijing is the claim that the country has stolen intellectual property and trade secrets from American companies.

Treasury yields fall amid US-China trade talks

Market players continue to monitor the latest round of negotiations between Washington and Beijing. Optimism has risen over the chances of both countries securing a deal to end their protracted trade war, but some experts say the most difficult part is yet to come as high level talks continue into Friday.

“There’s obviously an incentive for both sides to reach a deal,” James Athey, senior investment manager at Aberdeen Standard Investments, told CNBC’s “Squawk Box Europe” on Friday.

“The problem is that you’re now getting to the more difficult part of the negotiation, which is things like the IP (intellectual property) problem.”

One of President Donald Trump’s biggest contentions with Beijing is the claim that the country has stolen intellectual property and trade secrets from American companies. Both nations are a week away from an early March deadline to secure a trade deal, however speculation has risen there may be an extension to that target.

Elsewhere, a flurry of speeches from Fed policymakers are due throughout the day, with New York Fed President John Williams, San Francisco Fed President Mary Daly, Philadelphia Fed Chairman Patrick Harker and St. Louis Fed President James Bullard expected to speak on the U.S. economy and monetary policy at separate events.

There are no auctions scheduled for Friday.

U.S. government debt prices were higher on Wednesday as investors watched out for developments in the latest round of U.S.-China trade talks.

Treasury yields fall amid US-China trade talks; Fed minutes in focus

U.S. government debt prices were higher on Wednesday as investors watched out for developments in the latest round of U.S.-China trade talks.

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note sank to around 2.634 percent, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond slipped to 2.978 percent. Bond yields move inversely to prices.

Fixed income traders are keeping an eye on the latest global trade developments, after U.S. and Chinese officials met for a fresh set of discussions on Tuesday. Higher level talks are expected to arrive later in the week, the White House said Monday.

President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that the March 1 deadline for the two nations to reach a deal was not a “magical date,” hinting at an extension to the target date.

Meanwhile, market players will keep an eye out for Federal Reserve minutes from the central bank’s January meeting, which are due to be published Wednesday at 2 p.m. ET.

In other Fed news, New York Federal Reserve President John Williams said Tuesday that he was content with the current level of U.S. interest rates. The policymaker said he didn’t see any reason to hike rates again except in the event of surprising growth or inflation data.

The Fed’s raising of rates four times last year was a big point of anxiety for the markets, with market players nervous about the pace of the central bank’s stimulus tightening. The institution paused its once quarterly rate hikes last month, amid concerns of a potential slowdown in economic growth.

Morgan Stanley says tax refunds are currently higher than last year — for now

Some Americans have been shocked to see smaller tax refunds this year than they earned a year ago. But as tax season nears the end of its third week, refund amounts are actually up.

Morgan Stanley says tax refunds are currently higher than last year — for now

Some Americans have been shocked to see smaller tax refunds this year than they earned a year ago.

But as tax season nears the end of its third week, refund amounts are actually up. Treasury data shows that refunds are tracking slightly higher than they were during the same time last year, according to research from Morgan Stanley.

The average refund amount was down 8.7 percent for the week ending on February 8. But after factoring in data for the following week through February 14, the cumulative refund amount rose to just above where it was around the same time last year, Morgan Stanley’s researchers found.

One reason for the slow start could be the 35-day government shutdown, which may have led to processing delays, the report says.

And in many cases, bigger checks are still on the way. Those claiming certain tax credits, such as the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC), won’t receive any money until at least February 27. Both of these credits can result in sizable refunds, but the IRS can’t issue any money before mid-February because of the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act. The PATH Act delay is meant to help the IRS catch fabricated claims and safeguard taxpayers from fraud.

The key takeaway here is that early numbers don’t necessarily indicate what’s to come. “Refund amounts can fluctuate notably on a weekly and even daily basis,” the report says.

The Treasury Department tweeted that the early reports about smaller refunds are “misleading.”

“Refunds are consistent with 2017 levels and down slightly from 2018 based on a small initial sample from only a few days of data,” the Treasury Department says in the tweet, which was posted on February 11.

Thanks to the the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), Americans can expect an average reduction of $1,610 on their 2018 taxes, according to calculations from the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center.

However, the law benefits high-income earners far more than low-income earners: “The boost in after-tax income is 0.4 percent for households in the lowest quintile, compared with 2.9 percent for those in the top quintile,” TPC reports.

The TCJA also changed the rules on how much employers can withhold, and workers who didn’t adjust their own forms accordingly may have had too little taken out, resulting in a lower refund or even a bill. Plus, the TCJA limited deductions, expanded tax credits for those with children and eliminated personal exemptions.

Together, all of these changes left some Americans both surprised and confused by the amount of their refund, especially those who rely on that money.

But for now, Morgan Stanley is optimistic about the amount taxpayers will get back: “There is a strong consensus around tax refunds being higher compared with last year — a side effect of the TCJA that created higher than normal overwithholding.”

US Treasury yields lower amid US-China trade talks

U.S. government debt prices rose on Tuesday as investors awaited details from the latest round of U.S.-China trade talks.

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note slipped to 3.661 percent, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond fell to 3.993 percent. Bond yields move inversely to prices.

Fixed income traders turned their attention to the latest session of trade negotiations between Washington and Beijing. The White House said Monday that a new session of trade discussions would take place Tuesday, with higher level talks due later this week.

Tensions between the two countries have heightened as they attempt to strike a deal to prevent any further escalation in tariffs. China on Monday accused the U.S. of blocking its industrial development by claiming Chinese mobile gear could pose a cybersecurity threat to countries rolling out next-generation 5G networks.

Washington has been putting particular pressure on Huawei, the Chinese telecommunications giant, and is attempting to extradite Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou over charges of bank and wire fraud to violate Iran sanctions. The company’s founder Ren Zhengfei — who is also Meng’s father — labelled the move “politically motivated” in an interview with the BBC Monday.

Elsewhere, traders will be on the lookout for the NAHB housing market index on Tuesday, and are anticipating minutes from the Federal Reserve’s latest policy meeting and other economic data later in the week.

Meanwhile Cleveland Fed President Loretta Mester is due to give a speech about the economy and monetary policy at Newark, Delaware, on Tuesday.

In auctions news, $45 billion in 13-week Treasury bills and $39 billion in 26-week Treasury bills will be auctioned on Tuesday.

Chinese President Xi Jinping will meet with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer on Friday as both sides pursue a trade deal before an early March deadline, the South China Morning Post reported.

The report, which cites sources close to the matter, said Xi “is scheduled to meet” with key members of the U.S. trade delegation that’s in Beijing, including Lighthizer and Mnuchin. Chinese Vice Premier Liu He is also expected to attend a banquet for the U.S. delegation this week, according to the Morning Post.

China and the U.S. are trying to strike a deal before March 2. Otherwise, additional U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods could take effect.

The report comes a day after President Donald Trump said he would consider pushing back the current March deadline if it means a deal between the two countries can be reached soon. He added, however, he “would prefer not to.”

The trade tussle between China and the U.S. has sent ripples through financial markets over the past year. Investors have fretted over the impact of tariffs on corporate profits.

Neither the Treasury Department nor the U.S. Trade Representative’s office responded to CNBC’s request for comment.

US Treasury yields higher after tentative deal to avoid a government shutdown

ET, the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note, which moves inversely to price, was higher at around 2.6823 percent, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond was also higher at 3.0159 percent. Market sentiment got a boost on news U.S. lawmakers had secured a tentative deal on border security funding on Monday. The drafted agreement — which congressional aides said did not contain funds for a border wall — could help avert another partial government shutdown due to begin from Saturday.
