04:20 EDTFX Action: USD-JPY is trading in the low 111s
FX Action: USD-JPY is trading in the low 111s after clocking a fresh six-year peak at 111.53 in early London trade earlier. The surprise BoJ easing lit a fire under the pair during Tokyo trade and sent JGB yields to major-trend lows and saw the Nikkei stock index close with a stellar 4.8% advance. The earlier high at 111.53 is now an interim resistance level ahead of 112.00, which is reportedly the next option barrier of note. Obvious support levels are some way off. Analysts have 110.00-110.09 as a support region now, which encompasses the former cycle peak, ahead of 109.47-50. Analysts continue to target 115.0 on the back of divergent economic and central bank policy paths between the U.S. and Japan.

20:55 EDTJapan's jobless rate rose to 3.6% in September
Japan's jobless rate rose to 3.6% in September (seasonally adjusted) from 3.5% in August, in line with median forecasts, while the job-applications ratio sank to 1.09 from 1.10 as well for the first time since May 2011, suggesting some shrinkage in labor market momentum. However, the number of new job offers rose 0.5% in September, up 6.3% vs a year-ago.

14:35 EDTTreasury Action: the market should turn more consolidative
Treasury Action: the market should turn more consolidative after recent gyrations and ahead of next week's key data releases which culminate with the nonfarm payroll numbers (Friday). With supply out of the way, month-end flows may give curve flattening trades a little extra nudge into the weekend. Also trading is likely to be increasingly sensitive to incoming data as the FOMC continued to remind of it's "data dependent" policy stance -- though the FOMC has been hypocritical on this, consider the inconsistencies with the "considerable time" commitment and the unemployment rate threshold. Tomorrow's calendar includes September income, consumption, October consumer sentiment (final), and Q3 ECI, along with some Fedspeak from SF's Williams. Next week's data also includes the October ISMs, the ADP, vehicle sales, September construction spending, trade, and productivity, several of which will help fine tune Q3 GDP outlooks. Also of considerable interest next week will be Fedspeak (Fisher, Kocherlakota, Lacker, Rosengren, Evans, and Mester). The outcome of the mid-term elections will also be important, though probably won't have an immediate impact on prices.

13:20 EDTTreasury Action: yields steadied below highs
Treasury Action: yields steadied below highs in the wake of the mixed-to-damp results on the 7-year auction, which tailed, was light on the cover and ok on the indirect bid. The current 7-year yield poked back over 2.0% from the 1.99% area earlier, compared to session lows of 1.98%, Asian highs of 2.036% and the award rate of 2.018%.

13:05 EDTTreasury 7-year auction preview:
Treasury 7-year auction preview: the auction could benefit from the fact the FOMC is out of the way, even if the result was less bullish than many had hoped. But while the positive momentum in the market on the heels of the rally in German Bunds could make for a decent auction, especially given the widening spread of Treasuries to other core sovereigns, the bid cover is likely to be below par. The big redemptions this week and month-end flows could also support, along with a tendency toward curve flatteners. On the other hand, negatives for the sale include the lack of concession, with the 2.005% bid on the wi looking a bit rich. There's also no QE of course, so the intermediate sector of the curve is lacking a big buyer that's been in place for the last few years. There isn't a large short base either. The September auction garnered a 2.48 cover (2.56 average) and a 48.3% indirect (43.8% average). Direct bidders accepted 10.0% last month, while primary dealers took 41.7%.

12:05 EDTU.S. equities recouped some losses
U.S. equities recouped some losses with the help of a substantial rebound in European bourses from session lows prior to the U.S. GDP report. The Euro Stoxx 50 is nearly back to unchanged after down about 1.5% prior to the U.S. data, while peripheral indices are in shallow negative territory after falling roughly 2.0% earlier (after bank regulators warned that the stress tests wouldn't support a lending boost). That is a big reversal, especially considering think tank report that the ECB may prefer to rely on the TLTRO for now thanks to the firm dollar, though weaker German HICP inflation may have put potential ECB QE back on the agenda again. In the states, the Dow is 0.8% firmer, while the S&P gained 0.3% and NASDAQ is still 0.15% lower after the 3.5% gain in advance Q3 GDP. Visa is still the top gainer in the Dow at an extraordinary +9.1% following its upbeat earnings report and plans to charge banks higher fees, followed by Coca Cola +1% and Pfizer +0.8%, while on the downside are Intel -3.3% and Microsoft -1.3%, which seem to be behind the tech sector underperformance.
