The Treasury Bonds forged a range up extension and in the process the June contract managed to reach the highest level since March 6th. With the Capital flows report highlighting ongoing investment interest in US instruments from both China and Japan, it is possible that part of the run in prices today was the result of ongoing flight to quality interest, especially with the European debt scare remaining on the periphery of the marketplace. One might have expected US retail sales to have undermined the Bonds market but that potentially up beat news was apparently more than countervailed by a softer than expected US housing sector report. All things considered, concerns of slowing are given credence over evidence of growth.
