15:05 EDTTreasury Action: supply will complicate trading
Treasury Action: supply will complicate trading ahead as the debt market absorbs $90 B in shorter to intermediate coupon offerings and a $13 B 2-year FRN, all of which will be hyper sensitive to Yellen's Humphrey Hawkins testimony. Additionally, traders will have to deal with the fallout from Greece and data. When issued yields are little changed after having richened most of the session. The 2-year is at 0.680%, while the 5-year is at 1.615%, with the 7-year at 1.940%. A stop here on the 2-year would be one of the cheapest in years, but it may not be high enough to compensate for the potential of Fed rate hikes. Meanwhile, rates on the 5- and 7-year notes are some of the lowest in months, and that may limit buying as well. However, there is likely to be solid indirect bidding given wide spreads to core sovereigns, and especially with the ECB's QE program to begin shortly.

13:05 EDTFX Action: USD-JPY found some support
FX Action: USD-JPY found some support on the back of potential resolution of the Greek crisis, moving from lows of 118.30 this morning, back to highs over 118.85. Wall Street is back in the green, which has helped sentiment, though as Fed rate hike sentiment has been dialed back some since the FOMC minutes, and prospects for BoJ easing being pushed back, there will not likely be a rush to buy USD-JPY in the coming sessions.
12:15 EDTTreasury Option Action: decent call buying
Treasury Option Action: decent call buying was reported in the mix, in line with the better tone on fixed income futures to round out the week amid Greek debt acrimony, with sources otherwise preoccupied by calendar roll activity. Among the larger bullish deals were purchases of 15k in April 130 calls, 16k in week 1 129/130 call spreads and 10k in June 129+ calls. This heavily outweighed bearish demand for 3k in March 128+ puts and 5k in April 126/125 put spreads and a bearish sale of 4k in June 126.5 calls among others. March 10s are still 15-ticks higher near 128-02, while June 10s are 15.5-ticks firmer near 127-115.

10:50 EDTTreasury Action: short covering into the weekend has boosted Treasuries
Treasury Action: short covering into the weekend has boosted Treasuries, especially with Grexit uncertainties overhanging the markets. Equities remain cautiously lower. The 10-year Treasury yield has fallen back to 2.04% and a close there would be the lowest since February 12, though still inside the recent range. Meanwhile, the advent of Yellen's testimony next week should keep trading on the quiet side as the markets try to weigh the contradictory nature of the January FOMC policy statement, the minutes, and Fedspeak, not to mention the data. Key for her testimony will be how she navigates and spins a strengthening labor market, an improved economy (though growth has slowed from the heady Q2 and Q3 pace), deflationary price pressures, and soft wage growth. She will have to dance around the "patient" issue and not give any clear hints on whether it will be retained or dropped from the March policy statement, as she won't want to pre-empt the policy decision.

10:05 EDTEuro$ interest rate options: a mixed bag of flows
Euro$ interest rate options: a mixed bag of flows has trickled out over the morning. Among them were bullish purchases of 2k in Short December 90/95 call 1x2s, 2k in Green March 83/85 call spreads and 2k in Front June 95/96/97 call butterflies. There was also a sale of 2k in September 96/97 call spreads vs a purchase of June 96/97 call spreads. Sources reported some selling of volatility earlier to the tune of 7k in June 96 straddles as well. June 2015s are a tick lower at 99.59, while the deferreds are as much as 6.5-ticks higher out the back amid pre-weekend jitters over Greece.

10:00 EDTU.S. Markit flash PMI rose to 54.3 in February
U.S. Markit flash PMI rose to 54.3 in February versus 53.9 for January and December. It's the highest reading since November and breaks a string of declines since September as manufacturing activity had been cooling since hitting a peak in June with the index at 57.3. The index has been above the neutral 50 threshold for nearly five-and-a-half years. Meanwhile, some of the internals offset the improved headline as both employment and new orders declined, with the latter at ist lowest since January 2014, and the former at its lowest since July. Export sales were close to stagnation, according to the report. Input prices dipped modestly to the lowest level since July 2012.

09:15 EDTU.S. CPI was revised slightly higher
U.S. CPI was revised slightly higher with its annual release of new seasonal factors. December CPI was nudged up to -0.3% versus the -0.4% reported previously. The core rate was also bumped up to 0.1% versus unchanged initially. There were no changes to November's prints of -0.3% and 0.1% for the headline and core rates, respectively, while the headline October rate was revised up to 0.1% from flat. The small revisions don't really alter the picture of soft price pressures.
