In the afternoon just past, bonds traded for their greatest returns in over a week–something that hasn't really been too prevalent in the last few months. Yesterday was the most notable example since mid-April. The offender was a deescalation of trade war anxieties as they relate to Mexico, but the technical landscape is at least as important (i.e. bonds have been decisively overbought for several months AND trading at the lowest yields in nearly 2 decades ). At the day ahead, we'll digest among the lesser inflation reports in the shape of the Producer Price Index. This doesn't normally go markets unless it falls quite far from the consensus. Today's year-over-year core forecast is for a decline to 2.3% from 2.4percent previously.
