Most non-NFP Friday’s are boring and yesterday was no exception. The longer this US partial shutdown carries on the more the postponed data releases are going to pile up. When will we get the next US jobless report? That all depends on how long the current US partial government shutdown actually lasts.
The market should be expecting the report to be ready for release soon after the government reopens because a bulk of the data collection should already be done. Dealers are now expecting that the first available Friday will be pegged for this week’s missed NFP release.
Despite some hopes for a fiscal deal, investors continue to offload some very short term US T-bills that mature around that mid-October deadline. Current market bill trading suggests that investors remain worried about the US debt ceiling and the possibility of a technical US default. Money market traders have indicated that the one-month bill (October 30th) is bearing the brunt of the liquidation. Yields have backed up from 0.137% to today’s 0.19%.
