As the markets work through the better-than-expected US initial jobless claims, it seems some of the initial price action which saw the dollar move higher, the US yields move higher, and stocks move lower (in premarket), the trading fear has abated a bit. In the first 8 minutes of trading, the price of the major indices has waffled above and below the unchanged level. A snapshot of the market currently shows:

  • Dow industrial average -22.07 points or -0.07% at 33107.49
  • S&P index -4.24 points or -0.10% at 4259.52
  • NASDAQ index -9.58 points or -0.07% at 13226.43

Looking at the US debt market, yields are back lower with the shorter end leading the way (steeper yield curve):

  • 30 year yield 4.875% -0.2 basis points
  • 2 – 10 year spread -31 basis points. That spread continues to steep in back toward parity.
