12:20 EDTU.S. VIX equity volatility is relatively calm today
U.S. VIX equity volatility is relatively calm today after yesterday's post-FOMC swings, though stocks have been back and forth several times within tighter ranges amid ongoing confusion over oil and policy. The VIX is marginally higher near 23.10 compared to its tame 23.81-22.06 range and that's well inside the 27.22-20.42 band from yesterday. The recent high water mark is 32.09 from last week, which remains the next upside target if the correlated rebound in oil and stocks stalls out again. That VIX high matched the 1,812 low on the S&P 500, which has since recovered, but hasn't yet sustained a bid over 1,900.

10:50 EDTToday's U.S. reports
Today's U.S. reports revealed disastrous December durables data that lowered Q4-Q1 prospects for GDP and for Fed tightening at the March FOMC meeting, as the petro-sector downswing is proving more disruptive for the factory sector han indicated by previously available vehicle, aircraft, and defense spending figures. Durable orders plunged 5.1% overall and 1.2% ex-transportation in December, while shipments of equipment fell by an enormous 6.6% due to an aircraft shortfall, alongside a 2.2% overall shipments drop. Analysts also saw a 16k initial claims drop to 278k in the week of the MLK holiday that trimmed the troublesome claims uptrend since November, and analysts left our January nonfarm payroll estimate at 200k, though analysts'll need a few weeks of post-holiday claims data to determine if the pace of labor market improvement is diminishing. Analysts also saw a 0.1% December pending home sales rise, which was weaker than expected but still not nearly as ugly as the durables data. Analysts now expect GDP growth of just 1.0% (was 1.3%) in Q4 and 1.8% (was 2.0%) in Q1, and analysts pushed back our Fed tightening assumption to June.

10:00 EDTEuro$ interest rate futures are quite twitchy
Euro$ interest rate futures are quite twitchy as the mixed signals from the Fed (global developments reintroduced) spread around the globe and back again, with the rate contracts higher with global stock losses, then lower as the U.S. and crude oil rebounded on reconstituted Russia-OPEC reports. That's left the futures quite choppy, with the March 2016 contract a tick higher near 99.355 (0.645% implied 3-month rate), compared to 99.315 (0.685%) ahead of the Fed decision. The deferreds range from +1 up front to -4.5 ticks out the curve.
