Treasuries opened sharply higher across the curve this morning from yesterday's close. The UST 10-Year yield is currently at 2.112% after closing at 2.159% prior.

Treasuries rallied overnight driven by the North Korean missile that flew over the northern part of Japan yesterday. The fired missile sparked a global risk-off movement in markets as stocks slumped across Europe and Asia, while bonds gained as investors fled to safe-haven assets. The geopolitical tension between U.S. and North Korea is expected to regain traction as President Trump stated that “all options are on the table” in dealing with North Korea's latest bizarre action.

In economic news, we received the S&P Corelogic Case-Shiller home prices for June, which rose 0.11% following an upwardly revised rise of 0.13% in May. YoY home prices are up to 5.65% following an upwardly revised 5.74% rise YoY in May. We also received the Conference Board Consumer Confidence for August which rose to a reading of 122.90 following a downwardly revised 120.00 reading prior. Later today at 10:00 AM (PT), Treasury will auction $28 Billion 7-Year Notes.

The curve has bull-flattened with the UST 10-Year down 4.7 bps from prior closing.
