Weekly Preview (6/5/2011)

June 6th, 2011 7:41 AM by Lehel S.

This Week; the stock market will continue to struggle after the very weak employment report last Friday and all recent data that is confirming a slowdown in growth. The bond and mortgage markets will benefit as long as the outlook for the economy is expected to slip back. The 10 yr note is working on the psychological 3.00% level, to push yields lower it will take continuing declines in the equity markets. Another weekly lower lose in the stock market will make it six weeks in a row, not seen since back in 2002.
This week there is much in the way of economic data; Treasury will auction a total of $66b of notes and bonds beginning Tuesday through Thursday ($32B 3 yr, $21B 10 yr and $13B of 30 yr). The auctions will likely go well as most have in the last few months; however, there is always some concern that should keep interest rates frm improving much until the demand for the 10 yr note on Wednesday is measured. OPEC will meet on Wednesday with the Saudis wanting to push production higher, crude will likely trade lower in the meantime. While we continue to look for somewhat lower interest rates, this week may not provide much improvement. Technically the rate markets are overbought and likely will consolidate here for awhile. Early Monday rate markets were a little weaker with stock indexes also pointing to a lower open.
