13:45 EDTU.S. equities lost momentum
U.S. equities lost momentum and are lingering in shallow negative territory, with European bourses limping home today with a 0.78% drop in the Euro Stoxx 50 and 1.21% drop in the German DAX on the sour ZEW. News of a 280 Russian truck "humanitarian" convoy heading to the Ukraine caused serious market qualms early, especially amid evidence it had been in the works for a while and was not invited or part of the Red Cross effort yet. High drama in the Ukraine hryvnia and Russia ruble lent to the air of crisis still, though Russian stocks rebounded from lows to roughly unchanged. Within the Dow the largest losses were on Chevron -0.8% and Exxon -0.5%, leading energy sector shares lower amid IEA reports of a supply surplus, while biggest gains were posted by du Pont +0.8% and Merck +0.6%.

11:55 EDTTreasury's upsized $50 B 4-week bill sale was on the soft side
Treasury's upsized $50 B 4-week bill sale was on the soft side, likely in part because of the unexpectedly large $10 B increase versus last week. The bill was awarded at 0.04%, right on the screws, and up from last week's 0.02%. Bids totaled $186.3 B for a 3.73 cover, down from last week's 4.26, and well below the 4.22 average. Indirect bidders took 19.7% versus 23.4% previously, and a 19.5% average.

11:15 EDTTreasury 3-year auction outlook: the $27 B 3-year sale kicks off the refunding
Treasury 3-year auction outlook: the $27 B 3-year sale kicks off the refunding. These could be a difficult set of auctions as Fed rate hikes are a factor. The wi trades at 0.925%, at the high end of the 0.94% to 0.83% range. It would also be one of the highest award rates in over 3 years, though not as cheap as stop-out rates over the past three months. With the FOMC increasingly seen tightening policy by the middle of 2015, if not earlier, some buyers may balk and want to hold out for a 1.0% handle. However, there's still considerable anxiety in the markets regarding growth dynamics, along with considerable geopolitical risks, which could help underpin the auction. July's auction was rather average. It stopped at 0.992% and garnered a 3.38 cover (3.33 average) and a 38.2% indirect bid (33.2% average). Direct bidders were awarded 12.7% versus 19.4% previously, while primary dealers took 49.1% compared to 54.1%.

NY Fed outright purchase: the Fed is buying $0.095 B to $1.15 B in bonds dated from February 15, 2036 through May 15, 2044. The small purchase could provide some support to the long-end, which is underperforming despite the advent of the 3-year auction. The benchmark 30-year yield is flat

Hirings rose 92k to 4,830k, versus 4,738k previously (revised form 4,718k), which pushed up the rate to 3.5% from May's 3.4%. Quitters increased 47k to 2,534k, from May's 2,5487k (revised from 2,527k). The rate was steady at 1.8%. The data are consistent with most of the job numbers seen over much of this year.
09:50 EDTFX Action: USD-JPY sold off marginally
FX Action: USD-JPY sold off marginally to 102.09 lows, with intra day sellers stepping in on the move under 102.23, which marked the London low. Bids noted into 102.00 have resulted in a slight rebound, though gains have been tempered by a softer Wall Street open. A rebound in risk levels will support dollar-yen, though further erosion in equities could see stops under 102.00 threatened.
