European debt worries will continue for some time. Although progress was made concerning Ireland, problems in Spain, Portugal and Italy still remain. Economic information has been a mixed bag. However, inflation does not appear to be taking a back seat for much longer. Again, while it will be a roller-coaster ride for one more week, I will continue with no changes for rates for the next seven days.

The technicals show a mixed picture. The daily stochastic is bullish but pattern-constrained. There seems to be technical resistance keeping the 10-year above 2.75 percent. Contagion fears regarding EU debt are about all that Treasuries have going for them.

I believe rates will remain steady over the coming week.
