The USD rallied at the start of a week packed with catalysts, from economic data to new debt supply, as the yield on the U.S. 10-year note hit 2.99% for the first time since 2014 before pairing the increase. The pound joined major currencies retreating against the USD as U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May battled to avert a cabinet revolt over Brexit. U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said he's considering a trip to China, adding he is "cautiously optimistic" a deal can be reached that would bridge differences over trade. China's Ministry of Commerce said yesterday that it would welcome such a move. The apparent softening of positions comes as Chinese tech shares remain under pressure in the wake of U.S. sanctions against ZTE Corp announced last week. Elsewhere in trade, senior officials from the three NAFTA signatory countries are set to meet again in Washington as a push to reach an agreement in coming weeks intensifies.
