Horrible 5 Year Auction Sends Treasury Complex Into A Tailspin, 5 Year Yield Surges 22 Bps In Two Days

Tyler Durden's picture




 

It has been a long time since we had seen a 5 Year auction as ugly as today's: printing at a 1.615% high yield, the 5 Year had a 3.5 bps tail off the bat to the 1.58% WI where it was trading before. The internals were just as ugly, with the Bid To Cover coming at 2.59 a plunge from May's 3.20, and the lowest since June 2010. Not surprisingly, Indirect interest evaporated once again, tumbling from 47.1% to just 37.6%, with Primary Dealers having to take up more than half, or 52.1%, and the remainder going to Direct Bidders. Too bad they will have no more opportunities to flip these back to the Fed. Which as expected starts to confirm Bill Gross' thesis that in the absence of the Fed monetizing, rates are about to go higher. One look at the second chart shows the relentless selling in bonds since Sunday. And as reported previously, with a barrage of issuance due in the months following the debt ceiling hike, which will probably be some time in July or August, look for the sell UST thesis to start getting its long overdue confirmation. In the meantime, the 5 Year yield has surged from 1.35% yesterday to 1.5727%, a mindnumbing move.

Let's see...

No QE = higher rates

Higher rates = death to The Great Ponzi

Death to The Great Ponzi = loss of power for TPTB

Conclusion: QE can't and won't ever end.

No QE = higher rates

Nope.  Counter-intuitively, the opposite happened in 2010 when QE ended.  Rates fell.  Check for yourself.

After last week's massive rally, this is a very normal pullback (in prices).

Buy on the dips!

Nobody said negative (unless you're talking about the 30 day bill which just did) on the 5 year.  Just closer to ~1.0% before the big reversal, when QE3 gets pre-announced.

Again, study last year's template: the huge move DOWN in rates happened AFTER qe1 ended.  QE2 ends in a couple of days.....

The 'template' is 'Get everyone 100% sure there will be never ending QE's, then pull the trap door out from under their sheeple asses'.

If no QE3 arrives, then all the better for a long trade (NOT buy & hold) in Treasuries.

Without QE3(etc.), what will the sheeple do?  Panic.

Where will they run to when they panic?

Short-term Treasuries.

Exactly.

I was short in the fall 2010.  There's little doubt that a rally won't last.

But in the meantime, why not grab an opportunity to profit (or avoid losses).  If everyone is so bearish here, and risk assets (especially US equities) are still near their recent multi-year highs, then why not gain from what will almost certainly be a flight to safety when the shit hits the fan?

We've seen this movie (clip) before....last summer.  We know how it ends.

The script is exactly as you say, except in 2011 it has already played out. Stocks have already corrected to price in QE2's end, and UST have already rallied. There is no "event" that occurs this week. The event has already occurred. To hold the view that the shit hits the fan starting after June 30, you have to believe something changes. It doesn't. The FED will still invest maturities and divs from their total balance sheet. Also, there will be less flipping of UST to the FED. You should use your script and consider a twist: UST just hit their price highs for the year.

I think the flight to safety has been called into question by the utter lack of flight to safety so far in 2011.  However, bank recapitalization will force banks to raise capital through debt or equity offerings then lever it up and buy US Treasury securities to meet Basel 3 & D-F tier 1 requirements.  But it's still only short term cover for the thieves in Washington.

Yep, I agree that this vapo-rally will end very soon.  "Good" news out of Greece could push it a bit higher but in the coming weeks and months it's difficult to see what will impel this market higher.  Taking up shorts accordingly and hording cash.

It can't be this simple. It would be the most anticipated trade (sell UST's) ever! Something will happen to change this. If not a QE morph the event can and should be pervasive stock selling. Get the 30 day T-Bill all the way back to 12bps and roll out the asset buying spree, yet again. You should own "more" Gold by then.

But don't forget, it's not enough to simply run for the exit. You have to get someone else to sit in your seat (i.e. buy your position). And you probably won't get the price you were hoping for.

The fact that the 5-year yield itself is at 1.571% is mind-numbing.

Even at 2.571% it would still be mind-numbingly low given the necrotic state of the Guvvamint's finances.

I have been wondering if it is someone who would like to discredit the site and the regular posters.  This is a weakness of a site feedback system based upon unenforceable negatives. If this person junks all the old posters new traffice to the site may think that they are not very credible.  I would suggest that if this keeps up we might consider nullifying the negative aspect of this system by using it on everyone... constantly, lol.  I think the positive feedback system is less exploitable, such as the solution implemented at Turds site, he did a very nice job with that setup.

This is what happens as junk bonds are actually facing an open auction. The Fed withdrawal, as Gross nailed it, will cause a spike across the spectrum of yields above 2 years. They may "want" a steep yield curve but not so steep that it crushes capital investment, which is what will happen.l

QE is working!  Why stop now?  It is working!  Raise the debt ceiling!  The US will pay it back...eventually..after the DXY whistles one last song.  Seriously, you think Bernanke is sweating?  Neo-Keynsian theory, what is taught in every Major University across the globe, agrees, more debt issuance will fix the problems.  Who cares what the fascist Republicans say?  Their only answer is 'Austerity', which is just as stupid, because only the super rich will benefit from that 'solution'.

No one understands the crux of the problem is that FIAT MONEY IS NOT REAL.  The system is running on pixie dust and unicorn wings.  It is not that the system is no longer functioning- it never did.  First World relies on a Third World.  This is slavery.  Democrats can think they are honorable because they want to issue food stamps, but they wear NKE, they buy APPL products, they promote the slave system.  The system is built on Smithsonian economics, and Adam Smith was pro slavery.  His theory centers around slavery.

So those that follow this theory are slave masters.  Bernanke is a slave master, Obama is a slave master.  But slavery is not sustainable.  The lower class does rise up.  We are seeing that now, but what will they fight for, and who will they fight against?  Is the rebellion centered and focused?  Will it be?  What will we do....how will we find freedom from the system of Smith, the system of slavery?

It is not Keynsian, with more debt issuance with no backing of a real monie.  It is not austerity, which will strip all assets away from the people and give the rich all the access to resources and cheap labor.  No, it is simply that Constitutional Monie must be confirmed, the Fed must be burned to the ground, and State Banks should hold the collateral.  This can happen on a grass roots level if people buy their own gold, silver, and then remember that society is as strong as its weakest link.  People who can start their own bank, or loan gold to the banks, will see a return on their money, as the banks use the gold on loan to issue debt.  So...buy some silver for the sake of a new system.

LOL!  those graphas are pretty steep and % delta-huge all right, but 1.36%?  huh?  for five years?  the peeps who locked that in may have had enuf @ that price. we may have seen a  bottom in the 5 years.  hammurabi records 1.28% for the 5's back abt 1750 BCE so this would be abt a 4,000-year low. 

wait!  you want me to loan my money to the USA @ 1.4% for 5 years?  now, that's a whole different dealy!

i don't know the future, but for now, the FED seems to be shutting down some of the firehoZes,  but not mopping up yet.  so, the fire drill continues...  i think they want the long end rates to pay more, so the "financial community" can get the rate carry working.  after all, that is their business, right?  steepen the curve a little, for now. 

unfortunately, there is a delicate balance, with more and more hanging in it, the further we progress in the debtifukation of america.  house 0'cards;  tower of babel;  ponzi non interruptus.  and, interests in the outcome(s) differ widely. 

the internet is pretty cool, really.  got PMs?

Shiller was dead wrong. He said rates will fall as investors run to treasuries away form the Euro.

Bill Gross is right...he yelled, "stay away from Treasury Bonds...they will tank."

Looks like fewer and fewer want treasuries.

Really? Since Bill Gross said that Treasuries did nothing but rally.. And now they gave back 20% of that rally.. That makes Bill Gross only 20% less wrong

Of course, just after yields were compressed to issue new notes yesterday

Another dumb comment by ZH.. Let me see, since Bill Gross turned bearish on treasuries 5s rallied 90bps and now they gave 20bps back.. and somehow being 70bps under water rather than 90 vindicates Bill Gross' view..? seriously..!
