09:47 EDTStocks rise despite manufacturing, industrial production data missing forecasts
U.S. equity futures were higher throughout the pre-market trading session despite weaker than expected reports on manufacturing in the New York region and industrial production. The Empire State manufacturing report and the industrial production decline were worse than expected but the market showed little reaction as earnings take center stage. The broader market opened in positive territory and the Dow and S&P 500 are both up about 0.5% in early trading. About fifteen minutes after the opening bell, the Dow is up 101 points, the Nasdaq is up 16 points and the S&P is up 11 points.
09:45 EDTAtlanta Fed's GDPNow model forecasts 0.1% growth in Q1
Atlanta Fed's GDPNow model forecasts 0.1% growth in Q1 and this automated estimate updated in real time tracks 13 components of GDP growth as they are reported (analysts are still at 1.0%). The project goes back only to the second half of 2011, but in 7 quarters from late 2011 to 2014, its accuracy beat economists 5 out of 7 times, with 1 loss and 1 tie. The model is apparently especially good when the expected growth is less than 1%, according to sources. for more detail.

09:20 EDTFed's Bullard said holding zero rates for too long risks asset price bubbles
Fed's Bullard said holding zero rates for too long risks asset price bubbles, in his remarks on financial regulation from Washington. And added that a gradual rise in rates would mitigate that risk, while still providing "significant" policy accommodative. He will reserve judgment on inflation until oil prices stabilize, but said a drop in inflation expectations bears watching and he'd be concerned if they fell from 2%. Labor markets are approaching more normal conditions and he forecasts growth of about 3% over the medium term. Bullard isn't a voter.

09:00 EDTThe Empire State April drop to -1.19
The Empire State April drop to -1.19 extended the small March decline to 6.90 to leave the index just above the 19-month low of -1.23 in December, and well below the 27.41 five-year high in September. The ISM-adjusted Empire State measure remained at the lean 51.0 March figure, versus a 47.5 one-year low in December and a 55.3 two-year high back in June. The 2015 drop in producer sentiment in the face of unsustainably high inventories and the petro-headwind tracks the pull-back for GDP growth to the estimated 1.0% rate in Q1 from a lean 2.2% Q4 pace, and the Industrial production slowdown to a flat Q1 figure from a 4.4% Q4 clip. Analysts expect the Philly Fed to remain at March's lean 5.0 reading. Analysts expect a Richmond Fed rise to -4.0 from -8.0, a small Dallas Fed uptick to -17.0 from -17.4, an ISM rise to 52.0 from 51.5, and an unchanged 56.5 ISM-NMI reading. The mix should allow the ISM-adjusted average of the major surveys to remain at the same weak 50 figure seen in March, versus 52 in January and February, 53 in December, 55 over the four months ending in November, and a 56 cycle-high last July.
