The big event for the day will be the announcement of US auction sizes for next week. RBS economists estimate that we’ll see $44bn in 2 years, $41bn in 5-years, $30bn in 7 years, and $7bn in a 5 year TIPS reopening which would all be a $1bn upsizes versus prior auctions and reopenings. This should signify the first set of auctions which raise more than $100bn of net cash for Treasury in a week if our estimates of issuance are correct.
