    Seeking professional opinion on the yield development for the 10-year US Treasury Note in the short term, i.e.,until around 31 Jan 2019 OR 31 Mar 2019. After a plunge from around 3.25% to around 2.66%, I would like to get an opinion whether the sharp decline mainly reflects the currently many global economic uncertainties, or, mainly has to be interpreted as a long term trend in the yield rate, i.e., current US federal funds futures point to zero rate hikes in 2019 and therefore the yield naturally will further go down in 2019. In short, can we expect the yield to return to around 3.00% levels in the short term or it is recommended to adjust the portfolio to 2.50% or levels below. Thank you.

    US Treasury selloff leaves equities vulnerable and risks to key S&P 500 support

    A plunge in prices across US Treasuries over the past 24 hours to reinforce higher yield moves across the UST yield curve seen since September, in reaction to a more hawkish tone from Jerome Powell.
    This points to still higher yields in the short-term.
    Furthermore, this price action has put some negative pressure on US equity markets.
    The S&P 500 future is probing a key up trend line from the summer, below which could see a more negative technical picture.

    The Fed the key focus today with rate hike priced in

    Today, Wednesday 26th September will see the financial markets focus firmly on the Fed and the FOMC Meeting, which is expected from market pricing to deliver another interest rate increase.
    Critical to focus on will be the statement and the press conference. Is the labour market too tight, is the flattening on the US Treasury yield curve a concern, are growing trade war tensions a significant concern?? These are all questions to which the market will seek answers.
    Key markets to watch into the event will be the US Treasury Notes which for now is bearish (here we focus on the US 10yr Future) and the broad, benchmark equity average, the S&P 500, which currently stays bullish (here we look at the S&P 500 E-mini future).

    Today's Trade: US mini-tech wreck impacts Asian markets
    Wall St took a tech share-driven tumble on Easter Monday, with Tesla and Amazon losing ground. On a brighter note, China's manufacturing PMI beat expectations, as manufacturers shrugged off trade war worries. And a foreign takeover bid for ASX-listed Santos has sent the oil and gas company's share price soaring.

    Today's Trade: S&P/ASX200 edges lower as Wall St retreats yet again
    Australia's benchmark S&P/ASX 200 slipped into the red in early trading. The slide came after trade war jitters dragged Wall St lower for the third session in a row. On a brighter note, shares in top Aussie miners including BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto have rallied, thanks to a jump in the iron ore price.

    Bond markets still look weak. We have seen rallies being sold in T-Notes and Gilts. Below are our reports to clients for these markets today. The Bund is holding up for now, holding in a channel... a similar channel to the one that just broke this morning in Gilts!
