There’s been no new news on the banking front this morning, and investors are taking the lack of news as an excuse to rally.  US futures are up about 0.80% as treasury yields spike higher.  Ahead of tomorrow’s fateful Fed decision, the only economic report on the calendar is Existing Home Sales at 10 AM today.

With an increase of ‘just’ 14 basis points (bps), yesterday broke a streak of seven straight days that the yield in the yield of the 2-year US Treasury had a daily move of more than 20 bps. Another record streak that continued, though, was the fact that the 2-year yield traded with an intraday range of at least 30 bps.  Going back to 2000, which is as far back as we have intraday data for the 2-year yield, the current six-trading day streak of 30+ bps intraday moves is now longer than the five-trading day streak in September 2008 after the Lehman bankruptcy.

Not only is the current streak of wide daily ranges a record, but it also included what was a record single-day intraday range.  Last Wednesday, the 2-year yield’s intraday range spanned a low of 3.71% to a high of 4.41%.  That 70-bps range was a full 10 bps more than the prior record of 60 bps back on 9/19/08. Is that enough action for you?

Our Morning Lineup keeps readers on top of earnings data, economic news, global headlines, and market internals.  We’re biased (of course!), but we think it’s the best and most helpful pre-market report in existence!
