Treasuries fell as the U.S. prepared to sell $24 billion in three-year notes at the lowest auction yield in more than a year. While U.S. yields are at historically low levels, they still offer a premium over those of other developed economies. That helped lure international buyers at the three-year auction in March, when they purchased the most in almost five years. Threes are an attractive front-end yielder in the U.S. versus the rest of the world, said Tyler Tucci, a U.S. government-bond strategist at Royal Bank of Scotland Plcs RBS Securities unit in Stamford, Connecticut, one of 22 primary dealers that trade with the Federal Reserve. Demand should be pretty good. The benchmark Treasury 10-year yield rose two basis points, of 0.02 percentage point, to 1.92 percent as of 8:41 a.m. New York time after climbing six basis points on Monday. The price of the 2 percent note due in February 2025 fell 7/32, or $2.19 per $1,000 face amount, to 100 23/32. The three-year note yield rose three basis points to 0.83
percent. The notes on sale today traded at 0.865 percent, the least since March 2014. In the previous sale of three-year debt on March 10, investors bought $24 billion of the debt at a yield of 1.104 percent, which was the highest since April 2011. Indirect bidders, a class of investors that includes foreign central banks, bought 51.4 percent of the notes, the most since April 2010. The U.S. is scheduled to sell $21 billion of 10-year notes on Wednesday, followed by $13 billion of 30-year bonds the
following day. Treasuries returned 1.9 percent this year through Monday, according to the Bloomberg U.S. Treasury Bond Index, after earning 6.2 percent last year. The securities have advanced for five consecutive quarters, the longest winning streak in the data starting in March 2010.

My position on MBS:

Short term Stays Long.
Long term Stays Short.
I still feel this market could go either way.

Long = I anticipate pricing to improve which leads to lower Rates.
Neutral = Market should stay close to open plus or minimums 25bps.
Short = I anticipate pricing to weaken which leads to higher Rates.

Short term = 1 - 2 days out
Long term = 30+ days out

Market Commentary (Dan Rawitch)

102.60 is a very powerful point of resistance and we've now failed 4 times to break through it. The most recent and failed attempt has caused us to go down and test the bottom of the channel, as I had expected. Now, it appears as if we will slide sideways and down a bit, thus moving us out of the channel. If this happens, we will most likely see a trading range of 102.00 to 102.60. Not necessarily a bad thing, as it will give the market time to build some steam and prepare for another attempt to break 102.60.
