The UST 10-Year yield is at 2.551% this morning after closing at 2.561% yesterday.

The only economic data released this morning was for Pending Home Sales from the National Association of Realtors. Month-over-month, contracts to purchase previously owned homes dropped -2.50% for the month of November; this was the first drop in 3 months. However, existing home sales had an overall increase of 1.40% since November 2015. The drop was felt in 3 of the 4 regions of the U.S. In the West, home purchases fell 6.70%, the biggest decline seen since July 2013. In the Midwest, purchases dropped just 2.50%, their lowest since January 2016. The Northeast had a slight pickup in sales by 0.60%.

This week's economic data will include Unemployment Claims, Trade Balance, Consumer Comfort and the Chicago Purchasing Manager Index.

The curve has bull-flattened with the UST 10-Year 1 bp down from prior closing.
