Treasury Market Keeps On Ticking On Supply Hit While Stocks Felt Their Pain

The Treasury market rallied a bit over the last week. It was helped by light supply in previous weeks, with paydowns adding cash to investor accounts, but that changed late last week. The new supply auctioned over that week began to settle on Friday with more settlements coming Monday. That was a depressant late in the week. There should be a little spillover on Monday until all the new supply is put to bed. The pressure will come back on Thursday if the Treasury again sets the size of the 4 week bill at $45 billion.

Foreign Central Banks were buyers last week, while banks and dealers cut back their buying. This report shows where these trends are headed and their likely impacts on the financial markets.

I’ve been publishing The Wall Street Examiner and its predecessor since October 2000. I also provide analysis and charts for David Stockman's Contra Corner which I developed for Mr. Stockman. I’ve had a wide variety of finance related jobs in the past 44 years, including a stint on Wall Street in both analytical and sales capacities. Prior to starting the Wall Street Examiner I worked as a commercial real estate appraiser in Florida for 15 years. I also worked in the residential mortgage and real estate businesses in parts of the 1970s and 80s. I have been charting stocks and markets and doing analytical work since I was a teenager. My perspective is not of the Ivory Tower. It is from having my boots on the ground and in the trenches of the industries that I analyze and write about today.
