13:30 EDTU.S. Trade Deficit Preview
U.S. Trade Deficit Preview: July trade data is out Thursday and analysts expect the trade deficit for the month to improve to -$42.0 B (median -$42 B) from -$43.8 B in June. Exports are expected to remain unchanged following a 0.1% decline in June and imports are seen falling 0.8% after a 1.2% increase in June. Oil prices continued falling in July which could lead to distortions in the release.

12:40 EDTFed's Beige Book regional economic survey
Fed's Beige Book regional economic survey should tick the boxes on modest-moderate economic expansion, with consumer spending variable, while lower energy prices and energy-related CAPEX may impact spending in energy producing regions. That could leave manufacturing activity mixed, though real estate and lending trends remain positive. The caveats to the brighter employment picture could be similar -- as layoffs mount in the oil sector, while wage gains are likely to be muted outside of high demand for skilled jobs. The report at 14 ET will give those participating in the September 16-17 FOMC meeting something to chew on.

11:30 EDTA Solid August U.S. Treasury Receipt Rise
A Solid August U.S. Treasury Receipt Rise Daily Treasury data imply a 7% y/y August receipt rise that translates to an estimated 6% climb for Q3 overall, led by a 17% y/y August increase in daily individual withheld receipts. Analysts expect a 7.6% y/y increase for FY15 receipts that matches the most recent CBO assumption. An assumed 11% y/y August outlay drop that reflects a $43 B calendar hit translates to an $80 B monthly deficit, and an estimated $426 B FY15 gap that matches the CBO FY15 forecast and beats the $483 B deficit in FY14.
11:00 EDTU.S. and Canadian equities are rolling over again
U.S. and Canadian equities are rolling over again after their opening bounce ran out of steam and some of the fresh bearish pressure appears to be tranfering from the oil sector after crude dropped back to $44 bbl on a chunky EIA build on top of the API build reported overnight. The relief in the sector after this week's short-covering swing has quickly evaporated and stocks are rapidly back-peddling. Note, the commodity-sensitive Toronto S&P/TSX is leading the way into the red, while U.S. indices are now about at half-mast -- up about 0.5% for the moment. Indeed, within the Dow Chevron is the deepest decliner at -0.3%.
10:55 EDTFX Action: USD-CAD rallied to session highs
FX Action: USD-CAD rallied to session highs of 1.3304 after the EIA inventory data, which saw oil prices drop over $1/bbl to under $43.90. Resistance comes at Monday's 1.3327 peak, and above there, the trend highs in late August at 1.3350-55 comes into focus.
10:40 EDTEnergy Action: Front month NYMEX crude fell
Energy Action: Front month NYMEX crude fell to $44.19 from near $45.20 following the EIA inventory data which showed a 4.7 M bbl rise/fall in crude stocks. The street had been expecting a flat reading. Meanwhile, gasoline supplies, seen down 1.5 M bbls actually rose 300k bbls, while distillate stocks were up 300k bbls, versus expectations for a 1.0 M bbl rise. Refinery usage fell to 92.8% from 94.5%. Elsewhere, gasoline futures fell to N.Y. session lows under $1.39/gallon, from over $1.42.

09:51 EDTStocks rebound at open, averages up 1% in early trading
Stock futures were higher throughout the pre-market trading session, leading to a higher open for the broader market. Bullish investors who believe the U.S. economy will continue to outperform its Chinese counterpart are looking for a decoupling from the Chinese stock market. Investors will also be listening to what the Fed may be thinking when its Beige Book report is released this afternoon. In early trading, the Dow is up 191 points, the Nasdaq is up 51 points and the S&P is up 20 points.
09:45 EDTFX Action: USD-CAD posted an intra day high of 1.3277
FX Action: USD-CAD posted an intra day high of 1.3277 ahead of the North American open, and has since fallen back to 1.3200 lows. A partial reversal of overnight oil price losses has helped the CAD this morning, though corporate bids are reportedly in place at 1.3200 now, up from 1.3100 on Tuesday in the face of yesterday's oil market sell-off. The pairing has since headed back over 1.3235, as oil prices head back under $46. USD-CAD support is seen into the 20-day moving average at 1.3150, with resistance at 1.3280-1.3300, where option backed sellers are rumored.
