Memento
US US Bond Market
A US bond market that continues to pause with the general decline in volatility and yields in the middle and end of the curve. In the maturity scale of the curve, the magnitude of the decline in yields was gradual with the 2-year remaining inert and the 10-year which had the speed bonus for its variation. The effects of this movement have flattened the curve and revived the inversions between the maturities in the middle of the curve as well as the spreads against the 10 years, only the 10 vs 2 years has not inverted but has stabilized. For the time being, the slight easing in yields is not expected to be reversed and the faster decline in the volatility of the middle of the curve compared to the long end should contribute to accentuating the reversals.
On the short rate front, from our point of view, the T-Bills are currently positioned for an upcoming 25 bp rate increase. Note the very high volatility of the 1-month.
EUEuropean bond market
A European bond market with high overall volatility that is stagnating and yield curves that are flattening, the fear of sustained inflation is taking hold in rates in a more pronounced way for German bonds. Another major fact is the generalized rise in yields of the Italian curve compared to the main EU markets. Is Italy's dollar debt the only cause of this rise ?
The 10-year spreads against the GER have increased slightly, resuming their underlying trend.
Another fact is that in recent weeks there has been an increase in the number of statements made by various European officials and, in the case of France, by the governor of the BdF about the need to raise rates in the near future, which looks like a perfectly orchestrated communication operation. It is obvious to all that the rise in inflation in Europe, which is essentially energy and cereal-based, will be resolved by a rate increase in July ..... humour ! It is obvious that the rise in US rates is pulling the dollar up against the euro, leaving only a small choice for our vegetables leaders and central bankers who in 20 years have not been able to internationalize the euro in trade.
EURUSDEURUSD parity

Basically, the EURUSD parity is a victim of a higher access cost and more generally of a lack of dollars. The FED has again issued a dollar swap line to the ECB, maturing on Friday.
