09:05 EDTThe U.S. income report undershot estimates
The U.S. income report undershot estimates with a flat nominal consumption figure and a lean 0.1% December rise for "real" spending after November boosts that left a weaker than expected Q4 close for sales than analysts assumed from Friday's Q4 GDP data, though analysts did see a firm 0.3% December personal income gain. The savings rate rebound in December to the same 5.5% also seen in October (was 5.6%) followed a 5.3% (was 5.5%) November figure to leave a climb in the quarterly averages to 5.4% in Q4 from 5.2% in Q3 and 5.0% in Q2, as the resumed oil price downtrend has further boosted the savings rate beyond the surge earlier this year. Our Q1 GDP growth estimate was left at 1.8% after the 0.7% Q4 growth pace reported Friday, though analysts trimmed our Q1 "real" consumption growth forecast to 3.7% from 3.8%, after the 2.2% clip in Q4. In nominal terms, consumption is poised for Q1 growth of just 3.0% (was 3.4%) after a lean 2.3% Q4 clip, with a projected 0.7% Q1 contraction rate for chain prices after the 0.1% Q4 uptick. Analysts expect weak Q1 growth of just 3.6% for income and 3.3% for disposable income after the same growth rates in Q4, but stronger Q3 rates of 5.1% for both.

07:45 EDTTreasury Market Outlook: bonds are little changed light trading
Treasury Market Outlook: bonds are little changed light trading, having unwound earlier strength. Treasuries and European rates are biased slightly higher, while Asian rated dipped further to start a new month, after the BoJ's shift to NIRP last week. The 10-year Treasury has edged up to 1.93% from a low of 1.90%, in part of profit taking, after month-end buying supported trading late Friday. The JGB sunk to 0.024%. Stocks are also lower. Another weak PMI from China weighed on equities, but was offset somewhat by an unexpected increase in the U.K. manufacturing index to a 3-month high. Meanwhile, comments from ECB's Nowotny, who said the markets expected too much in December and suggested players should learn from the experience, took some of the starch out of the bullish tone. This will be a busy week in the U.S. with key data, Fedspeak, more earnings news and Treasury announcements. Today's slate includes December personal income, PCE, the January manufacturing ISM, the Markit PMI, and December construction spending. Treasury announces its Q1 and Q2 borrowing forecasts ahead of Wednesday's refunding details. Earnings will remain a focal point too with Alphabet (aka Google and including a new reporting structure), Anadarko Petroleum, Tesoro, Sysco, Wynn Resorts, Aetna, and Mattel.
