12:10 EDTMore from Yellen
More from Yellen: she said most measures of spending and confidence are positive, with industrial output and auto sales showing gains as well. Nevertheless, she believes depressed consumer expectations over rising incomes are holding back the economy, while the labor market has been subsequently hurt by the weakness in the economy. Tight fiscal policy is as drag too, with higher standards on mortgage credit have become a headwind too. The remarks suggest she'll remain very cautious in slowing and eventually removing stimulus.

SF Fed dove Williams said there's still a way to go before the labor market is healed in opening remarks at a Veteran's conference in L.A., but otherwise made no specific policy references. That will be up to Yellen and hawk Fisher now.

10:20 EDTTreasury Action: yields remained below highs
Treasury Action: yields remained below highs despite another uptick in the NAHB HMI and the opening rally on stocks. The T-note yield topped out at 2.5685% earlier, below the 2.57% post-Janet highs from Tuesday. The bond market should remain subdued while awaiting Q&A from the Fed Chairwoman, with July highs of 2.692% a safe distance away.

10:15 EDTFed Chair Yellen reprised her testimony from yesterday
Fed Chair Yellen reprised her testimony from yesterday, again stating the Fed hasn't met its goals on unemployment or inflation. The Senate Banking Committee didn't get much sought after specifics on the exit strategy in yesterday's Q&A and the House Committee shouldn't get any more information today. Analysts do expect the Committee to grill her on the valuation assessment contained in the Monetary Policy Report.

10:00 EDTThe 0.2% June U.S. industrial production rise matched our estimate
The 0.2% June U.S. industrial production rise matched our estimate, following offsetting revisions that left a 0.5% (was 0.6%) May pop. The May-June climb reflects rapid growth for mining, construction, and materials, though the June rise was restrained by a 0.3% utility drop and small 0.1% increases for business equipment and manufacturing, with a vehicle assembly rate downtick to 11.6 M from an 11.7 M cycle-high in May before a likely July pop to 12.1 M. Industrial production is poised for a 3% growth clip in Q3, following rates of 5.5% in Q2, 3.9% (was 4.5%) in Q1 and 4.9% in Q4 of 2013. Analysts have a surprisingly stable output climb despite big utility gyrations and a hit to the January factory sector from bad weather. More generally, analysts've seen 1%-9% quarterly rates since the start of the expansion. Analysts expect industrial production growth of 3.8% in 2014 after slower growth of 2.9% in 2013 but the same 3.8% in 2012.
09:45 EDTEuro$ interest rate options: a flurry of activity
Euro$ interest rate options: a flurry of activity accompanied the various data and stock market rebound, while more Fedspeak is due from Yellen, Williams and Fisher later at a 2:1 ratio of doves to hawks. Yesterday Yellen fired a shot across the bows of the exuberant tech sector, but that's already forgotten. Earlier there was a bearish sale of 5k in Red June 85 calls and a sale of 2k in Blue September 72/73 strangles (volatility). There was also a package, buying 10k in Green December 76/78 put spreads and selling Short December 86/88 put spreads. The September 2014 contract is a half-tick lower at 99.76, while the deferreds are 0.5-1.5 ticks lower.
