7 Year Auction Prices On The Screws As Foreign Central Bank Demand Returns

Following two poor auctions, with both the 2 and 5 Year issue earlier this week pricing in wobbly conditions, many had expected today's 7 Year, and last for the week, sale of $28 billion in Treasurys to tail as well. Instead, as we learned moments ago demand for the belly of the curve was the strongest among this week's auctions, perhaps as a result of today's sharp selloff in global rates. The auction printed at 1.653%, on the screws with the When Issued, if well above last month's 1.385%. Today's auction was also the highest yielding since January of this year when the yield was 1.759%. Perhaps it was the bounce in the yield that prompted foreign buyers to return, with Indirect Bidders taking down 61.5%, the highest since July if just below the 6 month average. Direct Bidders were also prominent, taking down 13.2%, above the 6mma of 11.5%. As a result, dealers were left with 25.3% of the auction, the lowest allotment since June. In summary, a largely average auction, however certainly stronger than this week's two previous issues and one which could have gone far worse as a result of today's steepening in the long end.

Clarence Thomas On Supreme Court Gridlock: Washington ‘Is Broken In Some Ways’

Justice Clarence Thomas gave a frank assessment Wednesday of how he feels about the political standoff over Supreme Court confirmations ― a subject that has gripped Washington since the death of his close friend Justice Antonin Scalia. Thomas said “there’s always hope” to fix the process, which has been at a standstill for more than seven months since President Barack Obama nominated Judge Merrick Garland to fill the vacant seat. But Thomas’ outlook was grim, even as he offered pointed remarks that could be read as a veiled rebuke of Republicans who seem intent on hamstringing an entire branch of the federal government. “This city is broken in some ways,” he told a group of supporters at the Heritage Foundation, which hosted a conversation with the justice on the occasion of his 25 years of service on the nation’s highest court. function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); The 68-year-old justice did not directly address the Garland gridlock, which is breaking historical records since Senate Republicans vowed in February to not grant any hearings to any of Obama’s nominees. But echoing remarks last week by Justice Sonia Sotomayor, he said that his work at the nation’s high court struck a different tone ― providing him an opportunity to talk and reason and disagree with his colleagues and still do the work he’s been called to do.  “I think that we have decided that rather than confronting the disagreements and the differences of opinion, we’ll just simply annihilate the person who disagrees with me,” Thomas said, in an apparent nod to dysfunction elsewhere in Washington. “I don’t think that’s going to work. I don’t think that’s going to work in a republic or in a civil society.” His remarks came just as Republicans are signaling that they might be willing to go to war over future Supreme Court nominees with Hillary Clinton, who is leading in the polls and is likely to make a number of appointments if elected president. One of the senators floating an even longer blockade was Ted Cruz (R-Texas), a fan of Thomas’ who on Wednesday indicated he might be open to leaving the high court understaffed for a while longer. Might Thomas agree with further obstruction? “At some point, we have got to recognize that we’re destroying our institutions and we’re undermining our institutions. Justice Clarence Thomas “At some point,” the justice said in the same segment, “we have got to recognize that we’re destroying our institutions and we’re undermining our institutions. And we’re going to destroy them. The day is going to come, if it’s not already here, that we’ll need the institutions and the integrity of the institutions.” Since Scalia’s death, the Supreme Court has done its part to keep its distance from the political fray ― going about its daily work of hearing cases, issuing rulings and reaching compromise whenever possible to avoid 4-to-4 splits. That hasn’t always been possible, and sometimes the decision-making does reflect sharp differences among the justices. But Thomas said the court is doing its part to “earn” the confidence of the public by upholding the oath they once made. “You took an oath to show fidelity to the Constitution, you live up to it,” he said. “You took an oath to judge people impartially, you live up to it. Yeah, in this city, this doesn’t go for much. You take heat for it or whatever. But that’s part of the job. You’re supposed to be beaten for it. You’re supposed to do your job.” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

HUFFPOLLSTER: Hillary Clinton Leads, But By How Much?

The numbers are all over the place, but it’s clear Hillary Clinton has the lead in the presidential race. Young Americans trust Clinton over Donald Trump on race issues. And views of the direction of the country are, unsurprisingly, divided by partisanship. This is HuffPollster for Thursday, October 27, 2016. POLLS VARY, BUT SHOW CLINTON LEADING - Janie Velencia: “Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is either slightly ahead or way ahead of Republican Donald Trump with just 13 days until Election Day, according to new polls released Wednesday. An AP-GFK poll shows Clinton leading by an astonishing 14 points, 51 percent to Trump’s 37 percent, in a four-way race. In a two-way heat, Clinton’s lead narrows to 13 points. A new Fox News poll finds Clinton ahead by a much smaller margin― just 3 points ahead in a four-way race, 44 percent to 41 percent. She also leads by 3 points head to head with Trump. Other recent polls show Clinton with a lead ranging from 2 points to 12 points. It’s best not to freak out just yet over which of Wednesday’s polls are right. Instead, consider the aggregate of recent polls for a more sober look at the race. According to the HuffPost Pollster aggregate, Clinton is leading by about 7 points in the four-way race, 46.6 percent to 39 percent.” [HuffPost] Splitting the difference - The ABC News/Washington Post tracking poll released Thursday morning shows Clinton leading by 6 points. [WashPost] Is the race tightening? - Nate Silver: “It seems like we’re overdue for another round of ‘is the presidential race tightening?’ And the answer isn’t totally clear. Our model thinks Donald Trump has probably narrowed his deficit against Clinton slightly, but the difference is modest enough that we’ve wanted to change our answer with every new round of polls. And in general, we’re reluctant to proclaim any turnaround in the race while we still have to squint to see a shift. But here’s what we think is a little clearer: Trump’s share of the vote has increased, as he’s picked up undecided and third-party voters, probably as the result of Republicans’ returning home after a disastrous series of weeks for Trump this month. Clinton, however, is at least holding steady and probably also improving her own numbers somewhat.” [538] Forecast update - Clinton’s chances of winning are up to 97.6 percent, according to HuffPost’s presidential forecast. That number have been steadily ticking upwards as it gets closer to the election. The forecast gets more certain of the outcome as Election Day approaches, even though polls haven’t changed much. Trump’s chances are down to 2.4 percent, essentially the chances of all of the polls being wrong. Other models show Clinton’s chances between 86 percent and 99 percent. The main difference between the models deal with how likely they think there is to be major polling error. In the Senate, Republicans are down to a 29 percent chance of keeping 51 or more seats according to HuffPost’s model. Democrats have a 35 percent chance of winning 51 or more, and accounting for the presidential race, their likelihood of a majority becomes 70 percent. [Presidential forecast, Senate forecast]    MILLENNIAL VOTERS FAVOR CLINTON - Nick Bayer: “[Hillary] Clinton holds a 28 point lead over Donald Trump among 18-29 year old likely voters, a new Harvard University Institute of Politics Poll finds. When asked how they would vote, 49 percent of millennials said they support Clinton. Trump wins the support of only 21 percent while Johnson and Stein take 14 percent and 5 percent respectively. ‘Her complicated relationship with members of this generation [is] starting to thaw a little bit,’ said John Della Volpe, Polling Director at the Harvard Institute of Politics on Wednesday morning. When asked about race relations, 78 percent of young Americans said they are concerned about the state of race relations in America today. What’s more, 85 percent of Black Americans surveyed feel that people of their racial background are under attack in America. Seventy-two percent of Hispanics feel they are under attack. Sixty-four percent of young Americans trust Clinton more to address inequality, the poll finds. Similarly, 62 percent of young Americans surveyed expect race relations would worsen in Trump were elected president.” [Harvard IOP] AMERICANS SAY CLINTON WON THE DEBATES - HuffPollster: “Americans say by a 17-point margin that Hillary Clinton won this year’s presidential debates over Donald Trump, according to a new HuffPost/YouGov survey. Forty-two percent of Americans say Clinton did a better job overall than Trump in the debates, while 25 percent favor Trump. Twenty-two percent say neither candidate won, while 11 percent aren’t sure. Views were generally split along party lines, although Democrats were more pleased with their nominee than Republicans were with theirs. Seventy-eight percent of Democrats said Clinton did a better job, while just 53 percent of Republicans said the same of Trump….Fifty-nine percent of Democrats, compared to just 43 percent of Republicans, said the debates had strengthened their opinion of their chosen candidate.” [HuffPost] POLITICALLY DIVIDED COUPLES ARE HAVING  A ‘TRAINWRECK’ OF A YEAR - HuffPollster: “If Donald Trump wins the presidential election, he’ll keep the country safe and improve the economy, Kyler, a North Carolina father of two, told a focus group Tuesday night. If Trump wins, Kyler’s wife Tasha retorted, she’s moving to Italy….Most Americans don’t have a close relationship with anyone who backs a different presidential candidate. A very small percentage, though, know at least one such person all too well. About 3 percent of voters backing Trump or Hillary Clinton say their spouse or partner is supporting the opposite candidate, according to Pew Research….[P]ollsters brought together five couples who disagree on the election for a political conversation that occasionally veered toward group therapy. ‘I really, genuinely think that our marriage has been the worst it’s been ever this season,’ Tasha said. ‘It’s a trainwreck. I have gotten to the point where I don’t even want to hear it.’...Just 15 percent of all voters say they’ve argued with their spouse or partner about this year’s elections, according to Pew. Even for couples who disagree, getting into fights about it isn’t the norm. Although 41 percent of voters in split-ticket relationships say they’ve clashed over the election, the survey found, 59 percent have managed to avoid any conflict.” [HuffPost] VIEWS ON DIRECTION OF THE COUNTRY ARE DIVIDED BY PARTISANSHIP - Jennifer Agiesta: “More Americans than at any time in Barack Obama’s presidency now say that things in the United States are going well, a sharp uptick in positive views and the best reviews of the country’s trajectory since January 2007, according to the latest CNN/ORC poll. Overall, 54% say things in the country today are going well, 46% badly. That’s a reversal from late July when 54% said things were going poorly and 46% said they were positive. The improvement in impressions of the country’s path stems largely from shifts among Democrats and independents. Among Democrats, 85% say things are going well, up from 76% in late July. Among independents, 51% now say things are going well, up 9 points since this summer. There’s been no significant shift, however, among Republicans: 21% now say things are going well, not significantly different from the 17% who said so in July. There’s also a stark divide between supporters of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. More than 8-in-10 of those behind Trump, whose campaign slogan suggests America has gone off on the wrong track, say things in the US today are going poorly. Among Clinton’s supporters, almost 9-in-10 say they’re going well.” [CNN]  HUFFPOLLSTER VIA EMAIL! - You can receive this daily update every weekday morning via email!

Twitter Cuts 9 Percent Of Workforce As Revenue Growth Slows

The microblogging service said its user base ticked up 3 percent to 317 million average monthly active users in the third quarter from 313 million in the second quarter. Analysts on average had expected 316.3 million monthly active users, according to market research firm FactSet StreetAccount. Twitter has been struggling to sign up new users amid competition from nimbler rivals such as Instagram and Snapchat. Revenue rose about 8 percent to $616 million, beating its own forecast of $590 million to $610 million. The company, which last month hired bankers to field acquisition offers but major companies did not bid, reported a 20 percent rise in revenue in the previous quarter. Revenue rose nearly 58 percent last year.
