13:31 EDTUnited States ratings affirmed by Fitch
Fitch Ratings affirmed the United States' Long-term foreign and local currency Issuer Default Ratings at 'AAA'. Fitch has also affirmed the issue ratings on the United States' senior unsecured foreign and local currency bonds at 'AAA'. The Rating Outlooks on the Long-term IDRs are Stable. "The U.S.'s 'AAA' rating is underpinned by the sovereign's unparalleled financing flexibility as the issuer of the world's pre-eminent reserve currency and benchmark fixed-income asset, and as home to the world's deepest and most liquid capital markets," the rating agency said.

11:55 EDTTreasury's $48 B 3- and 6-month bill auction was well received
Treasury's $48 B 3- and 6-month bill auction was well received, particularly the longer dated tranche, and thanks to strong indirect bidding. The $24 B 3-month offering priced at 0.025%, right on the screws and only slightly cheaper than last week's 0.020%. There were $97.0 B in bids for a healthy 4.07 cover, though below the prior 4.23 and the 4.15 average. However, indirect bidders took 33.8%, almost double the 19.4% previously and better than the 21.6% average. In fact it's the highest since February 9. The $24 B 6-month bill stopped at 0.105%, just through the 0.11% at the bid deadline, though up from the 0.095% last week. Bids totaled $103 B for a strong 4.32 cover, and much better than last week's 4.05 and the 4.07 average. It's the highest since February 17. Indirect bidders were awarded 52.5%, double the previous 24.1% and well over the 33.7% average. It is the tops since October 2013.

09:35 EDTChain Stores Restrain U.S. Retail Sales Rebound:
Chain Stores Restrain U.S. Retail Sales Rebound: Chain store sales slowed in March to signal downside risk to U.S. retail sales, which should otherwise receive a March lift from gains in gasoline, vehicles, and building materials alongside high confidence levels. Analysts expect March gains of 0.6% for the headline and 0.4% ex-autos after three straight months of sales declines. Gasoline prices rose 5% in March, vehicle sales rebounded to a 17.1 M pace from 16.2 M, and building materials have room to reverse a 2.3% February plunge, though analysts have a continued headwind from bad weather and delayed refund distributions.
09:30 EDTTreasury Action: Treasuries are recovering from selling pressure in Europe
Treasury Action: Treasuries are recovering from selling pressure in Europe overnight thanks to gains in German Bunds. The 10-year yield has fallen to 1.94% after testing 1.98% earlier on spillover from the drop in the 10-year Bund to 0.148%, which would be a new closing nadir. Consolidation is the name of the game today ahead of key data on retail sales and inflation. Stronger than expected sales and price figures should keep yields biased higher, especially after light domestic demand for last week's auctions. The disappointing March jobs report is now in the rearview mirror with forecasts for a Q2 rebound in growth now the story, and hence supporting risk of Fed rate liftoff by September.

09:00 EDTU.S. equities are marginally lower
U.S. equities are marginally lower after a mixed performance in Asia and Europe to start the week. The Dow is 41-points lower, S&P fell 5-points and NASDAQ is off 2-points ahead of the opening bell. This followed more gains in China with the Shanghai +2.1% and HK Hang Seng +2.7% higher amid fewer trading restrictions (despite a collapse in China's trade surplus), though Japan's Nikkei fell 0.01%. Europe is mixed, but the Euro Stoxx 50 is 0.1% higher even after reports that Greece's Tsipras is considering new elections if talks fail - Athens at +1.0% strangely appears to like that idea. Qualcomm is nearly 5% higher after reports of activist investors eying a spinoff of the firm's chip unit. Apple gained marginally on solid pre-orders for their watch. Financial sector earnings are on tap later in the week from the likes of JPM, BofA, Schwab, AMEX, Blackrock, Citi and Goldman, which will all be closely considered. The Treasury budget was rolled over from last week and will be considered late in the session.
08:25 EDTFormer Fed VC Blinder said the Fed can be very patient
Former Fed VC Blinder said the Fed can be very patient as it mulls a rate increase, since inflation won't return to its 2% target until 2017, according to an Op-Ed in the WSJ. He cited core inflation ranging from 1.3-1.7% and headline inflation near zero, only a slight increase in wages and long term unemployed as reasons for "patience" to remain a working concept even after it was banished from the statement. Blinder also cites the Q1 "speed bump" in growth and dollar appreciation, along with the lack of a feared "bubble" from extended ZIRP. Thus, "Monetary policy will eventually begin to normalize. But not in June, and maybe not in September. Timing, they say, is everything. This is a time for patience," said the Princeton professor.
07:55 EDTTreasury Market Outlook: Treasuries are weaker
Treasury Market Outlook: Treasuries are weaker after European sovereigns gave up earlier gains. The 10-year yield has climbed several basis points to 1.975%. Trading volume has been strong to open the week. Equities are mixed amid ongoing worries over a Greek accident. Chinese trade data was on the disappointing side, though the Shanghai index climbed on hopes of more stimulus. This will be a busy week for the U.S. calendar with a number key indicators on tap, along with the Beige Book and a plethora of Fedspeak, and as earnings announcements pick up steam. Today's slate is thin, though with just the March Treasury budget, which was delayed from Friday due to a technical glitch.
