Wednesday’s Factors and Events

A longstanding bond trade has been put on ice thanks to a changing climate in the U.S. Treasury market, which is being buffeted by a flood of supply and a drought in volatility.

The premium typically commanded by the newest vintage of Treasuries, so-called on-the-run bonds, over their older, or off-the-run, counterparts has been squeezed by these two forces to historically low levels.

You’ve seen a serious pullback from a lot of Treasury traders, especially relative-value traders in terms of the amount of balance sheet that they’re allocating to U.S. Treasury strategy because everything is so close to fair,” said David Rice, head of relative-value arbitrage at the Gelber Group.
