Treasury Market Summary: it was a mixed session for Treasuries, but a more straightforward day for Wall Street. Bonds struggled for direction with the growing angst over Fed tightening down the road, though amid contradictory policy metrics of rising threats of inflation and slowing growth. Beliefs the selloff on rate liftoff fears has been overdone allowed some correction today with shorter rates falling several basis points. The long end was under pressure, however, with yields climbing 3 to 5 bps. The curves steepened out 6 bps to 123.5 bps on the 2s-10s and 92.7 on the 5s-30s. Wall Street was less ambiguous in its posture Tuesday, with the major indexes all in the green, led by the S&P 500's 0.74% rally, its 5th straight gain. The NASDAQ advanced 0.71% and the Dow was 0.56% firmer. Data included a weaker than expected housing starts report for September, where it appeared much of the miss was a function of the bearish impacts from lingering effects from Hurricane Ida, as well as from constraints on labor, land, and materials. Fedspeak from Bowman and Barkin stressed problems in the labor market.
