10:35 EDTFX Action: The dollar trended a bit higher
FX Action: The dollar trended a bit higher after the outsized gain in confidence, though reaction was limited overall. Yields barely budged, while Wall Street remains in positive territory. EUR-USD edged into 1.3190, as USD-JPY moved up to just shy of 104.00.
10:30 EDTThe August U.S. consumer confidence surge
The August U.S. consumer confidence surge to a 92.4 seven-year high from a prior cycle-high 90.3 (was 90.9) in July left a four-month stretch of readings above last year's June temporary high of 82.1. Consumer confidence has risen with consumption and payrolls, unlike other confidence gauges that mostly remain stuck below lean mid-2013 levels. Confidence has enjoyed a 2014 lift from rising equity and home prices, though confidence faces headwinds from a deteriorating geopolitical backdrop, limited credit availability, and disruptions from Obamacare. For other surveys, the Michigan sentiment index dropped to 79.2 from 81.8, versus an 85.1 cycle-high last July. The IBD/TIPP index fell to 44.5 from 45.6, versus a 54.0 cycle-high in October of 2012. The RBC-IPSOS index rose to 51.5 from 50.5, versus a 51.8 cycle-high in March that was also seen last June. The weekly Bloomberg Consumer Comfort index slipped in the first three weeks of August to a 36.5 average from a 37.1 cycle-high average in July, versus a 36.4 temporary high in July of 2013.

10:15 EDTTreasury Action: consumer confidence defied gravity
Treasury Action: consumer confidence defied gravity though yields did not and remain below earlier highs despite a couple rounds of relatively solid headline data that have driven stocks back into the green. For the T-note the 2.40-2.44% corridor is providing a cap into month-end and ahead of Labor Day, with curve flatteners continuing to anchor the long-end along with the fixed income rally in Europe ahead of next week's ECB meeting. On the lower end of the range, 2.30% August 15 lows are providing a prop. 2s-10s remains narrow inside +188 bp, while 5s-30s is near +147 bp.

10:00 EDTEuro$ interest rate options: some bullish positioning
Euro$ interest rate options: some bullish positioning to start the session included the purchase of 5k in Green September 81/82/83 call butterflies. The September 2014 contact is fractionally higher at 99.765, while the deferreds are 0.5-4.0 ticks firmer out the curve. Some $29 B in 2-year supply today should keep a lid on the rate futures, though they could benefit later if the auction draws in decent demand over 0.50%.

Oil Action: NYMEX crude is up 74 cents at $94.09, with technical buying noted. Losses stalled under $93 the past few sessions, and sources now expect short covering to test the $95 region near term. The supply/demand picture remains bearish however, so barring geopolitical surprises, gains should be limited.
