14:00 EDTTreasury Action: long-end underperformance
Treasury Action: long-end underperformance has been the rule today, though the rising tide on stocks is lifting all boats along the curve. The 2-year yield has backed up from 0.5040% session lows to clear 0.5320%, the 5-year rose from 1.290% to 1.334%, while the 10-year bounced from 1.853% to probe 1.90% and the 30-year ramped up from 2.5090% lows to 2.569%. That saw the 2s-10s spread widen 2 basis points from +135 bp to +137 bp, while the 5s-30s spread stretched 1.5 basis points from +122 bp to +123.5 bp. Swings on stocks have been amplified by China as tighter margin and looser short-selling rules on Friday were contrasted by rate cuts today - setting up the "V" shaped move.
12:45 EDTEuro$ interest rate futures: a bulk purchase of June 2015s
Euro$ interest rate futures: a bulk purchase of June 2015s was spotted at 99.69 today to the tune of 60k with double that reportedly bid as well. Sources say that some 200k in June euro$s were sold from 99.645-99.595 back on March 19 (after last FOMC) and this may be short-covering on that trade. The June contract is a half-tick lower at 99.69 presently and the deferreds remain under pressure, some 0.5-5.0 ticks lower out the back.

10:05 EDTA Slight April Bounce for U.S. Sentiment:
A Slight April Bounce for U.S. Sentiment: The downdraft for U.S. producer sentiment may have abated somewhat in April, given improvement in the component data for the Empire State and Philly Fed reports despite unimpressive headlines. On an ISM-adjusted basis, the Empire survey held steady in April while the Philly Fed posted a welcome bounce. Analysts expect ISM-adjusted average of all the major surveys to improve slightly to 51 in April, after a lean 50 average in March, though higher 52 averages in January and February and a 55 average as recently as November.

09:50 EDTFed Policy Outlook: the FOMC meets next week
Fed Policy Outlook: the FOMC meets next week. Of course no policy action will be forthcoming. But the markets will be looking to the statement for additional clues on the timing of rate liftoff. With policymakers continuing to stress the data-dependency of rate action, as NY Fed's Dudley just did, there shouldn't be any firm indications on timing. The statement will note the slowdown in Q1, and the markets will try to get a sense of just how much temporary factors are to blame, including the stronger dollar, slow overseas growth, and spillover from energy price weakness. After the disappointing March jobs report, the Fed will repeat it needs to see further improvement, and it may tweak from the March statement that the underutilization of labor resources continues to diminish. The outlook on inflation will be important, and the uptick in core CPI to a 1.8% y/y rate in March from 1.7% y/y could give the Fed some confidence that prices are moving toward the target. But that won't be sufficient to suggest any policy changes near term.

08:45 EDTU.S. equities are on the mend
U.S. equities are on the mend following European stocks higher in the wake of the China rate cut, which left shares there unimpressed. While the Shanghai Comp fell 1.6%, the Euro Stoxx 50 is 0.6% higher. That has left the Dow 105-points firmer, S&P up 10-points and NASDAQ up 17-points in pre-open action. Solid results for Morgan Stanley with a a 59% rise in profits thanks to M&A and trading revenues also helped buoy stocks after lifting MS 2.6%. Hasbro rallied 8.5% after demand for toys relating to movie tie-ins. On a bright note, former Senator, Goldman CEO and disgraced MF Global exec Jon Corzine is considering launching a hedge fund, according to the WSJ.
