13:27 EDTGeithner, Boehner harden fiscal position on Sunday morning shows, Bloomberg says
Speaking about the fiscal cliff negotiations with the Democrats on the “Fox News Sunday” program“, House Speaker John Boehner said, "I would say we’re nowhere, period.” Speaking on CNN’s “State of the Union.” U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner said, “There’s not going to be an agreement without rates going up,” Republicans will “own the responsibility for the damage” if they “force higher rates on virtually all Americans because they’re unwilling to let tax rates go up on 2 percent of Americans,” says Bloomberg.

15:15 EDTTreasury Closing Summary:
Treasury Closing Summary: Yields retraced this week's rise, pulling back to mid-week levels as the dollar declined and tech stocks forged higher. Gold extended its losses as well to session lows of $1,176 (lowest in over a month) and WTI eased 1.2% lower. This was a fairly resilient move on the behalf of U.S. assets, considering the lack of clarity on the economy and muddle on Greece heading into the weekend. The FOMC meeting will not have a press conference next week and shouldn't reveal much either, betrayed by Q1 GDP, while heavy sovereign supply looms.

14:05 EDTFed Policy Outlook: no change is expected from the FOMC
Fed Policy Outlook: no change is expected from the FOMC. The focus will be on the statement and the nuances in the forward guidance language, but analysts doubt there will be any clarity on rate liftoff. However, it will be very interesting to see what the Fed says in place of the statement from March that "the Committee judges that an increase in the target range for the federal funds rate remains unlikely at the April FOMC meeting." They probably won't be so forthcoming about the June meeting especially since they stress the policy path is data dependent. Nevertheless, assuming policymakers acknowledge yet further slowing in growth after saying in March that "growth had moderated somewhat," the markets should infer that rate liftoff in June is highly unlikely. Look for the Fed to also suggest, however, that some of the slowing is a function of transitory factors and that underutilization of labor resources continues to diminish. Also, there could be some sign of optimism over rising inflation after the March CPI as well. All this will leave the door open for a move on rates some time this year.

11:30 EDTFX Action: USD-JPY has given up the 119 handle
FX Action: USD-JPY has given up the 119 handle, after posting four consecutive higher daily highs this week, culminating in an eight session peak of 120.09. Softer U.S. yields have weighed some, though with no further BoJ stimulus expected until Q4, yen bears appear to be giving up on help from the central bank. In addition, the dollar has lost some of its shine of late, as U.S. data disappoints, and as prospects for a Fed rate hike are pushed further and further out. The 118.50-20 region is likely to provide USD-JPY support for now, though a break of 119 should open the door for a move to the 116 handle.

08:45 EDTU.S. advance durable goods orders rebounded 4.0% in March
U.S. advance durable goods orders rebounded 4.0% in March, much stronger than expected, but that belies weakness in many key components. February's 1.4% decline was not revised, but January's 2.0% jump recorded previously was nudged to 1.9%. Transportation orders remain choppy, contributing to the sawtooth pattern in durables. They surged 13.5% following a 1.8% drop previously (revised from -3.5%), with January up 8.9% (revised from 8.8%). Excluding transportation, orders dipped 0.2%, extending the string of monthly declines to 6 straight. Nondefense capital goods orders excluding aircraft fell 0.5% and has posted declines since last September. Durable shipments were up 1.1% after sliding 0.2% lower in February. Nondefense capital goods shipments excluding aircraft slid 0.4% after a 0.1% rebound in February (revised from 0.2%). Inventories increased 0.1% with monthly gains extending back to May 2013. The inventory-shipment ratio was 1.67 from 1.69.

08:45 EDTFX Action: The dollar initially rallied
FX Action: The dollar initially rallied on the strong headline durables print, though quickly retreated again, as the ex-transport component disappointed. EUR-USD dipped to 1.0815 from near 1.0850, before popping back to near 1.0870, as USD-JPY rallied to 119.55 from 119.40, and has subsequently dropped back to 119.30. Equity futures remain in positive territory, as yields remain on a softer footing.
