    U.S. equity markets produced modest gains on Monday. The trading action suggests that short-covering and bottom picking were most likely the catalysts behind today’s rally. Volatility slowed compared to last week’s trading action. Investors may be standing aside as they await Wednesday’s Fed FOMC announcement.

    Treasury futures traded lower as demand for lower yielding assets fell. Demand for safer assets helped to lower yields and boost the March Treasury Bonds and Treasury Notes last week. This bodes well for the next auction because it looks as if the Treasury will be able to offer lower yields. Supply concerns are likely to continue to limit gains, however.

    February Gold mounted a strong comeback following last week’s sharply lower trade. Investors dumped commodities because of the stronger U.S. Dollar. News that China was beginning to shift toward a tighter monetary policy means less demand for precious and industrial metals. Furthermore, a slow down in demand will mean lower inflation which lessens the need for gold as a hedge. Most of Monday’s strength could be attributed to short-covering and profit-taking.
