US Treasury markets traded higher throughout the overnight and early morning, helped by a pull back in risk-taking sentiment. Data overnight from China showed a weaker than expected read on export activity, as well as loan growth, and that was taken as a sign that the economy could be slowing further. Fears of slowing growth fueled a move back into safe-haven assets like US government debt. Some traders suggested that the weak Chinese data raised the prospect for more aggressive action by their central bank. September 30-Year Bonds stood about one and a half points above yesterday’s low.
