The market opened with treasuries nearly unchanged from Friday’s close despite the newly announced U.S. immigration policies over the weekend. The UST 10-Year yield is currently at 2.486% after closing at 2.484% prior.

December’s Personal Income report showed a 0.30% MoM growth in income, which was slightly below expectations of a 0.40% increase, while Personal Spending for December rose 0.50% versus a 0.20% increase prior. The PCE Deflator MoM and the Core PCE Deflator MoM both came in as expected, rising 0.20% and 0.10% respectively in December.

The remainder of this week’s economic calendar consists of heavy data, which includes Tuesday’s Employment Cost Index and Chicago Purchasing Manager, Wednesday’s ADP Employment Change and ISM Manufacturing, Thursday’s Initial and Continuing Claims, and the release of January’s jobs report on Friday. Additionally, the first FOMC meeting of the year begins tomorrow. The market does not expect a rate change at the end of this two-day meeting, but the tone of the FOMC Statement could move the probabilities of a March rate hike higher.

The curve has bull-steepened with the UST 10-Year up 0.2 bp from prior closing.
