US 10Y TREASURY: FOMC induced volatility

TVC:US10Y   US Government Bonds 10 YR Yield
The 10Y US Treasuries reacted to jobs figures data posted on Friday. The data were somewhat mixed. On one side, unemployment for May showed an increase to 4.0% from 3.9% posted for the previous month. On the other hand, the non-farm payrolls with 272K jobs added, significantly surpassed market expectations of 190K. The market is expecting for the jobs market to slow down as it will be the first sign for the Fed to pivot, as inflation is holding sticky above 3%. However, May data were sort of mixed. The Fed is meeting on Wednesday, and the majority of market participants are of the opinion that the Fed will keep interest rates unchanged at this meeting. Based on the CME Group's FedWatch Tool there is currently a 68% chance that the Fed will pivot in September this year., based on traders’ expectations.

A mixed mood has been evident during the previous week. The 10Y US benchmark was moving toward the downside during the week, reaching its lowest weekly level at 4.27%. Still, Friday’s trading session brought a change in sentiment, where the market returned yields toward 4.43%, due to posted jobs data. As FOMC will decide on interest rates on Wednesday and will communicate its macro projections with the wider community of investors and traders, it implies that the increased volatility might be ahead for another week. Still, the markets should eventually calm after they price all available information.
