U.S. Treasuries continue rally tracking ongoing government shutdown ahead of busy trading week

The U.S. Treasuries rallied during late afternoon session Monday, tracking cues from the ongoing government shutdown, besides, a handful of economic data, starting on Tuesday with the Empire Manufacturing survey for January and December PPI figures.

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasuries slumped 3-1/2 basis points to 2.665 percent, the super-long 30-year bond yields fell 2-1/2 basis points lower to 3.012 percent and the yield on the short-term 2-year suffered nearly 3-1/2 basis points lower to 2.512 percent by 11:30GMT.

Wednesday will bring the Fed’s latest Beige Book, capital inflows data and the NAHB housing index, with weekly jobless claims and the Philly Fed index due the following day. Friday, meanwhile, will bring December’s industrial production report and the preliminary University of Michigan consumer sentiment survey for January.

December’s retail sales and business inventories data (Wednesday), as well as housing starts figures (Thursday) risk postponement due to the government shutdown. In the markets, the Treasury will sell 10-year TIPS on Thursday.    

Meanwhile, the S&P 500 Futures fell nearly 1 percent to 2,569.88 by 11:35GMT, while at 11:00GMT, the FxWirePro's Hourly Dollar Strength Index remained neutral at -16.68 (a reading above +75 indicates a bullish trend, while that below -75 a bearish trend).
