The First "Trump Thirty" Auction: Deplorable

If yesterday's 10Y auction - the first under president-elect Donald Trump - was "deplorable", then today's was not much better. The auction priced at a high yield of 2.902%, tailing the When Issued 2.889% by 1.3 bps, one of the biggest tails in recent history.

Furthermore, just like yesterday, the Bid to Cover collapsed, sliding from 2.439 in October to 2.107 despite the far higher yield, which was effectively matched with the BTC in February 2016, and before it the only lower one was in August of 2011 when the US was downgraded by S&P. The internals were just as ugly with Indirect Bidders tumbling from 65.4% to only 54.5%, the lowest since August of 2015. Directs took down 12.5% of the auction, leaving 33.1% to Dealers, roughly in line with average.

In summary: if yesterday's 10Y and today's 30Y are indicative of how "easy", or rather difficult it will be to sell debt for the Trump administration, the market may want to significantly reign in its expectations for a $5 trillion incremental boost to the US debt, which at this rate will only happen if the Fed is out there scooping it up in yet another QE operation.

The bond vigilantes are finally stirring and all it took was president Donald Trump.

Farage Slams "Loathsome Creature" Obama, Tells Trump "Schmooze PM May, But Don't Touch Her"

Outspoken Brexiteer Nigel Farage offered to the "responsible adult" in the room when British PM Theresa May and US President-Elect Trump meet. Keen for Britain and the USA to keep up its special relationship, The Sun reports Farage said he would be there to ensure Trump did not get out of hand.

(Apologies for the low volume audio)

Speaking to James Whale on TalkRadio he was asked how he is going to make sure Trump behaves himself when he meets the Prime Minister for the first time, he replied: "I want him to make us his priority so I'm now going to become a diplomat.

"I'm going to say come and schmooze Theresa, but don't touch her for goodness sake.

"If it comes to it I could be there as the responsible adult to make sure everything's okay.

And he said he would give him a lesson on British etiquette so he does not try and kiss her on the lips.

But Farage was not done, as he added that Trump is much better for Britain than "loathsome creature" Barack Obama and this weekend he will be jetting off to the USA where he is hoping to meet Trump and his team to talk about how to strengthen the special relationship between our two countries.
