10:45 EDTTreasury 30-year auction outlook:
Treasury 30-year auction outlook: the wi 30-year has richened to 3.225% in the face of supply amid weaker than expected European data on the heels of the disappointing U.S. retails sales. So far the first two legs of the refunding have gone ok, and today's should too. At 3.225%, that would be the lowest stop since May 2013. Many of the factors that helped underpin yesterday's 10-year sale should support the bond as well, including wide spreads to other sovereigns, generally bullish momentum, tame inflation, and geopolitical risks. Last month's $13 B reopening was awarded at 3.369% and garnered a 2.40 cover and a whopping 53.2% indirect bid, with direct bidders accepting 11.1% with primary dealers taking 35.7%.

09:50 EDTEuro$ interest rate options: bullish positioning
Euro$ interest rate options: bullish positioning included the sale of 30k in Short December 90/91 put spreads. There was also a purchase of 1k in Short March 83/86 put spreads vs 88/90 call spreads, and a bearish purchase of 10k in Red December 80/85/90 put butterflies, among others. The underlying short-dated rate futures remain well bid with the front September 2014 a half tick higher at 99.77, while the deferreds are 1-4 ticks firmer as well, as Europe knocks on the door of a triple-dip recession.
09:39 EDTMarket opens slightly higher
Stock futures weakened slightly during pre-market trading after there were more jobless claims last week than were expected. The futures closed above fair value, leading to a slightly higher open for the broader market. There is little more scheduled for release from the economic calendar, the earnings season is winding down, and there is relative calm on the geopolitical front at the moment, which may make for little resistance if the market begins to move higher. The Dow began the day just 500 points shy of its all-time high. In early trading, the Dow is up 22 points, the Nasdaq is up 6 points and the S&P is up 4 points.
09:10 EDTThe U.S. trade price report
The U.S. trade price report revealed big July headline hits from falling petroleum import and food export prices, but with firmness in the ex-oil and ex-food trade price measures that left some "core" price resilience into Q3. Commodity prices are now unwind the early-2014 boosts from harsh winter weather and Middle East turmoil. Trade prices have more generally been moving sideways since 2011 as global growth weakness has allowed commodity price restraint, as has the 1%-3% annual rate of climb for the dollar since 2011. For 2014 overall, export prices ex-agriculture and import prices ex-petroleum are showing a slight firming path, with respective year-to-date gains of 0.6% and 0.5% that follow respective 2013 declines of 0.3% and 1.2% and near-zero figures of -0.3% and 0.1% in 2012. For the remaining July inflation reports, analysts expect flat headline figures for CPI, PCE chain prices and PPI, with core price gains of 0.2% for CPI and 0.1% for PCE chain prices and PPI.
