09:15 EDTEuro$ interest rate options: mixed positioning into the FOMC
Euro$ interest rate options: mixed positioning into the FOMC meeting remains in vogue, including bearish purchases of 10k in Blue September 70/75 put spreads vs the sale of 10k in Short September 88/91 call spreads. Also, there was a bullish purchase of 5k in Short June 88/90/91 call butterflies on top of 12k purchased yesterday. In block trade there was a bullish purchase of 10k in Short June 88/90/91 call butterflies, totaling 20k all day and 32k over the past two sessions. Underlying June 2015s are flat at 99.615, but the deferreds are as much as 8-ticks higher out the curve as the market gets increasingly comfortable with the glacial thaw in zero rate policy.

08:55 EDTU.S. equities have retreated with Europe
U.S. equities have retreated with Europe, while the 17% fall in housing starts may buy more time at the Fed on the launch of tightening, with the WSJ already warning that the Fed outlook has become clouded by the dollar surge and signs of slowing in the U.S., though much of the plunge appeared weather-related. Stocks reversed gains in Asia after the BoJ left QQE policy unchanged and German ZEW survey gains were smaller than expected relative to the euro's dramatic declines in March. Greece remains in the news as well after Fin Min Varoufakis appeared to alienate Germany once too often and PM Tsipras may negotiate directly now with Germany's Merkel and EU Summiteers. The Dow is 55-points lower, S&P fell 6-points and NASDAQ is off 2-points in pre-open trade, fractionally lower after the weak housing print. This followed a 0.99% rise in Japan's Nikkei and a 1.04% fall in the Euro Stoxx 50.

08:20 EDTCanada Manufacturing Shipments Preview
Canada Manufacturing Shipments Preview: Analysts expect shipments to fall 1.0% in February after the 1.7% gain in January. Export values plunged 2.8% in January, tilting the risk for January manufacturing to the downside. An as-expected or larger pull-back would fit in with the oil shock story, so the report should not necessarily challenge the Bank of Canada's growth outlook.

07:50 EDTTreasury Market Outlook: Treasuries are wearing the green
Treasury Market Outlook: Treasuries are wearing the green, paced by gains at the long end as the 10-year yield falls to 2.04% amid risk-off trades. That's in contrast to declines in most Asian in European sovereigns. Trading remained light. Stocks are lower on profit taking after the Dow gained 228 points yesterday, with selling motivated by a smaller than forecast rise in the German ZEW confidence index. There are ongoing concerns over Greece. Crude oil continues to stumble lower. The BoJ maintained a steady policy stance. The RBA minutes showed policymakers are open to another rate cut as AUD is still viewed as overvalued. The FOMC begins its 2-day meeting today. Data is thin today with just February housing starts, and weekly retail sales.
