Some days I sit here and look at the screen and nothing comes to mind.  Today is one of those days.  There was a mixed bag of economic reports from various sectors, but nothing was earth shattering.  Building Permits are up 2%, Producer Price Index rose 0.1%, and Oil just jumped back above $30 per barrel.  The DOW is up 246.  All of these are weighing on bond prices, putting upward pressure on interest rates.
