- Initial jobless claims rising 21K to 311K makes for a good excuse for headline writers, but action elsewhere may be of more import as German 10-year Bund yields slipped below 1% for the first time ever amid stalled EU Q2 GDP growth. The Bund yield has since popped back to 1.01%, off two basis points on the day.
- The U.S. 10-year yield is currently down three basis points to just under 2.40%, its lowest on a closing basis since June 2013. Up later, Treasury will sell $16B of 30-year bonds.
- TLT +0.3%, TBT -0.6% premarket
