By Edward Bolingbroke
(Bloomberg) — Treasuries unwind early sell-off to leave
yields richer across the front-end and little changed further
out. Declines were led by gilts following Conservative Party’s
decisive Parliamentary election victory that paves the way for
the U.K. to leave the EU by Jan. 31.
* Yields lower by 1.6bp across front-end of the curve,
steepening 2s10s by 1.4bp; 10-year at 1.89%, richer by 0.3bp vs.
Thursday close but still 5.6bp higher on the week after
Thursday’s 10.1bp increase spurred by reports of U.S.-China
trade agreement
** Gilts cheaper by 3bp vs. Treasuries as 10-year yields rose as
much as 7bp — highest since June — following U.K. election results
* Friday’s main U.S. events include November retail sales and
possible formal presentation by President Trump of an interim
deal with China that avoids further escalation of trade war
* 3-month dollar Libor +0.6bp at 1.89963%
* U.S. economic data calendar includes November import/export
price index and retail sales (8:30am) and October business
inventories (10am)
* Fed speakers include Williams, discussing monetary policy at a
New York event at 11am
