14:20 EDTTreasury Action: yields tapered slightly lower
Treasury Action: yields tapered slightly lower with stocks following Yellen's speech, while the Beige Book report was generally a bit more upbeat on multiple counts thanks in part to the thawing in the weather. Hawk Fisher continues to jawbone on the risk of inflation as well, along with fiscal headwinds and some improvement in the weather. The T-note yield again held below 2.66% highs this week and has retreated to the 2.64% area again, while still some distance from the Ukraine-motivated breach of 2.60% yesterday. The curve is flatter, with 2s-10s +227 bp and 5s-30s at +181 bp.

14:04 EDTFed says consumer spending increased in most Districts
In its latest Beige Book report, the Federal Reserve said consumer spending increased in most Districts, as weather conditions improved and foot traffic returned. The transportation sector generally strengthened in recent weeks, with higher port volumes and increased trucking. Even in districts where transportation was soft, the outlook was optimistic.

13:45 EDTFed Beige Book preview:
Fed Beige Book preview: the anecdotal report of regional activity across the 12 Federal Reserve Districts (March through early April) should reflect some bounce back from the weather depressed conditions from earlier in the year. But it shouldn't reveal any big surprises given the boilerplate nature of the report and the gradual nature of growth. The general characterization of growth has been "modest to moderate" for some time now, and analysts don't look for that to change. The March report said the general outlook was "optimistic" and that should hold too. There should be a pick up in sales and manufacturing after the hit from weather. Housing probably improved, albeit only modestly, and commercial real estate likely expanded further. Employment should have improved as well, with ongoing shortages of skilled workers. Wages and prices probably remained relatively steady.
13:35 EDTYellen takeaways: her comments revealed her dovish leaning
Yellen takeaways: her comments revealed her dovish leaning, with no hint of a time-frame to rate hikes as she continues to back away from that rookie fumble in the March 19 presser. The Fed chair is still very concerned about the sluggish recovery and the slack in the labor market, and stressed that price pressures are more likely to remain low than to accelerate. It looks as though rates are going to remain low for quite some time, perhaps into 2016. Stocks have extended gains on her comments, which have in turn nudged yields a little higher. However, yields remain below where they printed following the March 19 FOMC press conference.

13:25 EDTMore from Yellen:
More from Yellen: the Fed is mindful of the spillover effects as accommodation is removed. But she noted the timing of policy moves and challenges of policy are different for different countries. Europe is returning to growth at a modest pace, but is more challenged by its banking sector problems. Like Bernanke before her, she didn't really take any responsibility for the problems faced by other economies to the Fed's actions (remember Bernanke just got into a war of words with RBI chief Rajan on this issue).
13:20 EDTYellen Q&A: labor market has been perplexing with respect to historical norms
Yellen Q&A: labor market has been perplexing with respect to historical norms. In answering what role the Fed can play, she said the FOMC's accommodative policy stance has been the most effective. In the public sector, more training will be helpful. Answering a question on whether the Fed would be willing to raise the funds rate above the inflation rate, she responded of course the Fed will be "very focused" on removing accommodation when the time comes (that's going to be a judgment call).
