     The UST 10-Year yield is at 1.740% this morning after closing at 1.720% on Friday.

    Treasury yields are sharply up this morning on the strength of the US Dollar and comments by Fed Bank of Chicago President Charles Evans who noted that Fed policy may soon be changing. Shorter term rates are also on the rise as the UST 2-Year yield is up 4 bps to 0.870%, the highest yield since early June. Investors will get more insight on the Fed's thinking tomorrow when the minutes from the September FOMC meeting are released. 

    Today's economic data is light with NFIB Small Business Optimism coming in at 94.10 vs. 95.00 expected. For the rest of the week we have MBA Mortgage Applications and Fed minutes tomorrow, Jobless claims on Thursday and Retail Sales and PPI on Friday

     The curve has bear-steepened with the UST 10-Year 5 bps up from prior closing.
