13:05 EDTAction Economics U.S. survey results
Action Economics U.S. survey results: It has been another wild week in the markets that has only further clouded the outlook on Fed rate liftoff. While the Survey medians still points to a 25 bp rate hike at the September FOMC meeting, and another 25 bps in December, action is far from a done deal. More than a handful of forecasters believe the Fed will hold off next month, with some seeing no tightening at all this year. Next week's data will not tip the Fed's hand either, with CPI expected to post gains of 0.2% for the headline and core, though they are perhaps outdated due to the plunge in commodities. Housing starts and existing home sales should be little changed. View the survey results.

11:20 EDTFed Policy Outlook: Today's data are consistent with a September liftoff,
Fed Policy Outlook: Today's data are consistent with a September liftoff, though it remains a close call whether the recent plunge in commodity prices, dollar strength, and remaining uncertainties over the outlooks for China and Greece will prompt a delay in the first expected quarter-point hike from the Fed. Both industrial production and PPI beat estimates, but the July output pop was due to a temporary auto lift that will be unwound, while firm core PPI prices in July will be followed by weak headline price data in August and September given falling commodity prices. The FOMC will take all these various factors into account as they mull their policy decision, as recent domestic growth data have generally supported an early move, while global growth and commodity weakness has suggested a delay. Analysts assume that the boost in reported Q2 GDP growth to 2.5% from 2.3% and another firm round of August jobs data will tilt the Fed's hand toward a September tightening.

10:15 EDTTreasury Action: yields steadied below highs
Treasury Action: yields steadied below highs following the dip in U. Michigan sentiment, which contrasted the firmer rounds of industrial production and PPI. The T-note yield skied from 2.16% to session highs of 2.21% before easing back to 2.20% again. Stocks are above earlier lows, though recently have fallen for 10 out of 12 Fridays. The 2.25% psych area may hold for now, unless equities defy the odds and their the August downdraft.

09:45 EDTThe hefty 0.6% U.S. industrial production rise
The hefty 0.6% U.S. industrial production rise reflected a 15.3% vehicle assembly rate pop to a cycle-high 13.6 M clip that can be attributed to a temporary boost from this year's limited auto retooling, alongside a downward June revision that trimmed the good news in the report. The vehicle sector surge allowed a big 0.8% manufacturing rise, and alongside a 0.2% mining sector rise but a weather-led 1.0% July utility output drop. Analysts now expect a 3% Q3 growth rate for industrial production, after contraction rates of 2.0% (was 1.7%) in Q2 and 0.2% in Q1 that left the worst two factory sector quarters of the expansion. Before the petro-sector recession and associated factory weakness of 2015, analysts saw gains in every quarter of the expansion that left a factory sector outperformance of GDP. Industrial production growth is slowing to an estimated 1.8% growth pace in 2015 that undershoots our 2.5% 2015 GDP estimate, following overshoots that left respective growth rates of 3.7% versus 2.4% in 2014, 1.9% versus 1.5% in 2013, and 2.8% versus 2.2% in 2012.

Stock futures drifted during the pre-market trading session but unfortunately their direction was lower. The futures action led to a modestly lower open for the broader market as it tries to get back to its winning ways.
