Treasuries have rallied across the curve this morning amid geopolitical concerns. The UST 10-Year yield is currently at 2.142% after closing at 2.183% prior.

With several major potentially risky events this week, investors fled to safe-haven assets overnight and triggered a rally in treasuries into the morning. Former FBI chief James Comey has a scheduled congressional testimony which could help determine how the probe into the Trump campaign's contact with Russian officials could impact the admiration. Investors will also have their attention on the ECB's latest monetary policy decision, and also on the parliamentary elections in the UK determining Theresa May's majority. All of these political events will take place this Thursday.

The rest of the week consists of very light economic data. Tomorrow we will receive the MBA Mortgage Applications for the week ending on June 2nd and the Consumer Credit data for April, on Thursday we will have the Initial Jobless Claims for the week ending on June 3rd and Continuing Claims for the week ending on May 27th, and lastly, we will receive the final print of the Wholesale Inventories for April on Friday.

The curve has bull-flattened with the UST 10-Year down 4.1 bps from prior closing.
