Just like Friday, we open the day with lots of bond friendly news! Back to back days of good (for bonds) news have propelled the 10 year from a critical danger zone, all the way up to the top of the range.
This is a big news week and I would expect a huge amount of volatility as we move forward into November. The FOMC has begun their meetings, Tuesdays results will be interesting to listen to.
My guess is that we do not get good news on job growth this week and the Fed will have to come to terms with an anemic 1.6% year over year GDP growth. Since 1948, any number less than 2%, has led to recession.
