10:20 EDTAtlanta Fed's moderate Lockhart in an NY Times Q&A interview
Atlanta Fed's moderate Lockhart in an NY Times Q&A interview said that he expected to vote to raise rates by September at the latest, though in his 9-years at the Fed he's never voted to raise rates. He was generally optimistic about the economy and saw 2.5-3.0% average growth ahead and gradual inflation rise to 2%. "Too much can be made of the lift-off decision itself because the really important factor is what's going to be the interest rate environment for the foreseeable future and to what extent is it going to remain accommodative, which I believe it will," he said. He also apparently gave "Atlanta Hawks" hats to Fisher and Plosser, but not himself since he couldn't find a team named "Centrists" or "Moderates." He's not 100% set on a hike by September (Fischer said "this year"), but "if analysts go beyond September, it would be because analysts were really disappointed in the stream of data that come in."

09:15 EDTU.S. durable goods orders dropped 1.4% in February
U.S. durable goods orders dropped 1.4% in February after a 2.0% January gain (revised down from 2.8%). Weakness was broad-based. Transportation orders fell 3.5%, with orders excluding transportation down 0.4% after a 0.7% decline previously (revised from a 0.3% gain). Nondefense capital goods orders excluding aircraft slid 1.4% lower versus January's -0.1% (revised from 0.6%). Shipments dipped 0.2% after falling 1.4% previously (revised from -1.0% originally), with nondefense capital goods shipments ex-aircraft up 0.2% versus -0.4% previously (revised from -0.3%). Inventories were up 0.3%. The inventory-shipment ratio edged up to 1.69 from 1.68. Data are much weaker than expected and should support gains in Treasuries while weighing on stocks and the dollar.

08:55 EDTU.S. equities steadied above lows
U.S. equities steadied above lows with Europe negative again on Grexit fears resurfacing. Durable goods orders fell 1.4% in February after a revised 2.0% rise in January, predictably surrendering some of its prior-month gains. In M&A, news of a $40 B mega-merger between Kraft and H.J. Heinz hit the tape, creating the third largest food and beverage corporation of its kind. That saw Kraft shares surge over 35% in pre-open trade after the purchase by 3G Capital and Berkshire. Kofax also surged 46% after agreeing to a merger with Lexmark. Stocks in Europe are down again with the Euro Stoxx 50 off 0.7% and yet Athens is 3.6% higher. In the U.S., the Dow is 18-points lower, S&P slid a point and NASDAQ is 2-points firmer in pre-market action. The WSJ is talking down biotech shares, which it claims could be fueling a "bubble" in the tech sector after a 240% gain in the sector since 2012 relative ot hte NASDAQ 100's 82% rise.

08:15 EDTEnergy Action: NYMEX crude was range bound
Energy Action: NYMEX crude was range bound overnight, trading between $46.99 and $47.68. API inventory data reported on Tuesday revealed another U.S. stock build, rising 4.8 M bbls, and bringing total stocks to over 450 M bbls, an all-time high. EIA data will be reported at 10:30 EDT, where a 4.0 M bbl stock increase is expected. There has been talk lately of storage facilities being nearly full in the U.S., which is not a good sign for oil bulls, especially going into the spring refinery maintenance period, where crude demand will lessen. RBOB gasoline is steady over $1.81/gallon, while U.S. average retail gasoline is up a penny/gallon from Tuesday, at $2.42, according to AAA data. Natural gas futures are trading in the middle of their recent range, currently at $2.77/M BTU.
