November 29, 2019 Headlines

US Treasury yields are essentially unchanged on low volume following the Thanksgiving holiday. On Wednesday, President Trump signed a bill supporting Hong Kong protesters that China considers an interference in their domestic affairs. However, Chinese officials stressed that negotiations are still on track if the law is not implemented. As a reminder, trading desks are thinly staffed due to the holiday and the market will be observing an early close at 2pm EST.
