Today's slide deck: https://bit.ly/3xcxQWV -
Today we look at whether the arrival of a new quarter can bring new dynamism to the US treasury market as the liquidity effects of ongoing Fed purchases combined with the US Treasury winding down holdings at the Fed and banks reducing their balance sheet size into quarter-end have dominated the most important of global markets. We also look at the shape of the US yield curve, thoughts on peripheral EU sovereign debt, a new spike in grain prices on a planting report, high natural gas prices and more. On today's pod are Althea Spinozzi on fixed income, Ole Hansen on commodities and John J. Hardy hosting and on FX.
