09:30 EDTFed Policy Outlook: one month's data won't alter the FOMC's trajectory
Fed Policy Outlook: one month's data won't alter the FOMC's trajectory. The overall report still reflects an improving job market, albeit at a very laborious pace and despite massive amounts of stimulus. Nevertheless, the headline employment figures were disappointing, and the unemployment rate dipped for the "wrong" reason, which will give Chair Yellen and the doves the upper hand for now and will keep most policymakers treading lightly with respect to policy normalization. The FOMC will continue to trim QE by $10 B at the upcoming September 16, 17 meeting and bring the buybacks to an end in October. Of significance, however, will be the nuances in the language of the policy statement which could portend the likely timing of rate lift-off. The FOMC can credibly state that there is "sufficient underlying strength in the broader economy to support ongoing improvement in labor market conditions." While the Fed could alter its "considerable period" phrase, it still might retain that key language at this point if it thinks the first rate hike is closer to mid 2015 than earlier. Analysts still expect policymakers to provide more clues on the normalization tools since Yellen will have the opportunity to more fully elaborate on them at the press conference.

09:10 EDTTreasury Option Action: some selling of volatility
Treasury Option Action: some selling of volatility was reported into the open with a sale of 2k in October 125 straddles, though there certainly has been some chop in the wake of subpar payrolls in August. December 10-year futures are 14-ticks higher near 125-135 on the payrolls whiff, compared to a 125-215 to 124-26 range on Globex.
08:55 EDTU.S. equities snapped back from lows
U.S. equities snapped back from lows after shortfall on August nonfarm payrolls bought some breathing room on the Fed outlook (bad is good) and offset overnight markets turning cautious before the jobs data and Ukraine talks in Minsk. The Euro Stoxx 50 settled 0.4% lower after the ECB's measures yesterday stopped shy of full blown QE and got a more sober reading by the markets with Eurozone GDP confirmed at 0%. Yet, U.S. indices cut their losses after the payrolls result. The Dow is in shallow negative territory, S&P is up marginally and NASDAQ 7-points firmer in pre-open trade. In corporate news, Gap sank 6% after same-store sales faltered in August, while Prana Biotechnology vaulted 21% after an upgrade on one of its drugs. Michael Kors sank 4.5% after equity dilution.
08:50 EDTFX Action: USD-CAD was dragged lower
FX Action: USD-CAD was dragged lower in the immediate aftermath of the twin U.S. and Canadian jobs report, falling from 1.0895 from 1.0840, as the greenback was hit broadly from the U.S. NFP miss. The weak Canadian employment report however quickly trumped, and USD-CAD has shot back up to 1.0900. The pairing has run into offers from 1.0900, stopping the run higher for now at least.
08:45 EDTFX Action: The dollar slipped broadly
FX Action: The dollar slipped broadly after the big NFP miss, taking EUR-USD to 1.2989 from near 1.2950. USD-JPY fell under 104.75 from 104.15. Yields moved lower, as equity futures pared losses, perhaps on hopes the Fed punch bowl will remain.

07:45 EDTN.Y. FX Outlook
N.Y. FX Outlook: The dollar posted new highs against the yen, taking USD-JPY to 105.70, before settling back into 105.20 into the open. Solid profit taking interest was noted in Tokyo, into the weekend. EUR-USD meanwhile, ticked back over 1.2960 after failing to test Thursday's post-ECB lows of 1.2920. The August U.S. employment report will be the main driver this morning, though given dollar gains seen this week, the NFP print will likely have to handily beat median forecasts of 220k to get the greenback much higher. Profit taking could be in the cards into the weekend.

02:20 EDTFX Action: USD-JPY logged new highs while EUR-USD consolidated
FX Action: USD-JPY logged new highs while EUR-USD consolidated the steep losses seen yesterday in the wake of the ECB's unexpected easing, holding above the 14-month low of 1.2920 in a narrow range that was capped by 1.2949. USD-JPY, meanwhile, rallied in early Tokyo through last December's major-trend peaks to a new high of 105.70, before subsequently ebbing back to the 105.30-40 area. The bid in USD-JPY was reportedly sparked by 'Gotobi' importer demand, which was quickly added to be stop- and option-related buying amid a bullish sentiment due to higher U.S. yields and expectations for a strong U.S. employment report today. Exporter offers and profit taking drove the retreat back under 105.50. Elsewhere, Cable edged out a new seven-month low of 1.6287. AUD-USD saw a narrow 0.9332-0.9341 range.
