    Any thoughts on the effects of the minutes on the bond and stock markets? It seems like people are going to be looking for some type of signal for a pause at a future meeting(s).

    No pause, so is it a SELL then?

    Looked like a buy to me in the bonds. Penetrated 4% near the close.
  5. Anyone have any idea why the 10 yr outperforming so much relative to the 5 and 30 yr. The 10 yr explodes towards the close but the the 5 and 30 can even touch or get near the highs
  6. Where did you see this?

    $TNX closed @ 4.037

    Sorry, your right I thought that 112 31 was the 4% level in the futures but that price was the 4% a few days ago.
  8. not that it matters now... the futures are currently trading at 113 '06 up 6 ticks since the cash close
