07:10 EDTFX Update: The dollar extended to fresh highs
FX Update: The dollar extended to fresh highs against most of the main currencies as markets continued to digest the strong U.S. growth number of last week. EUR-USD logged a fresh 22-month low at 1.2669, which is just seven pips short of the November 2013 low. The euro lifted following perkier than expected German state CPI numbers and a rise in Spanish HICP, but the move stalled just shy of 1.2700. The market remains keen to sell the euro on rallies ahead of this week's ECB meeting in light of Draghi's "risk of doing too little outweigh risks for doing too much" speech last week. USD-JPY broke through 109.50 option barriers on route to a new six-year peak at 109.74. AUD-USD saw a new nine-month low of 0.8664. NZD-USD saw sharp losses after the publication of RBNZ forex transaction data, which showed that the central bank sold NZD 521 M last month in an intervention initiative to drive the currency lower. The NZD logged a 13-month low at 0.7708. New Zealand PM also said that the "Goldilocks" level for the NZ dollar is around 65 cents.

03:45 EDTFX Action: USD-JPY broke through 109.50 option barriers
FX Action: USD-JPY broke through 109.50 option barriers earlier on route to a new six-year peak at 109.74. The move reflected broad dollar gains as the market continued to digest the strong U.S. growth number of last week. PM Abe said that a decision must be made by year-end about whether the economy could cope with a second sales tax increase next year, while BOJ’s Kuroda said that the moderate recovery trend should persist. Analysts are expecting USD-JPY to breach 110.00, which is a reportedly major option barrier level.

15:05 EDTTreasury Closing Summary:
Treasury Closing Summary: A Friday asset allocation swing from bonds into stocks was the temporary fix ahead of quarter-end for jumpy portfolio managers after news broke that PIMCO Bond King Bill Gross jumped ship to Janus before being forced to walk the plank. This followed hot on the heels of stock portfolio liquidations that day prior by hedge fund BlueCrest that caught the complacent stock market napping. Upward revisions on Q2 GDP and unrevisions on Michigan Sentiment were lost in the shuffle, though risk of a "Black Swan" type event seemed overblown. That said, there was plenty of positioning on Treasury futures and options rumored somehow related to the fallout from the dramatic management reshuffle.
13:20 EDTTreasury Option Action: heavy put buying
Treasury Option Action: heavy put buying featured as part of the sum total of options activity today, in addition to earlier reported rumors of position unwinds relating to a management shift at a large bond fund. Sources confirmed the large "8x1 ratio put spread" executed in pit trade was a net vol purchase involving a 40k purchase of November 122.5 puts vs a sale of 5k in November 123 puts. In addition to that sizeable trade there were about 25k in purchases of various put strikes, combos and trades ranging from 119.5 to 124-00 puts. Underlying December 10-year futures are 10-ticks lower at 124-14, compared to a 124-295 to 124-115 session range - in line with the panicky sell-off.

10:15 EDTThe September Michigan sentiment rise
The September Michigan sentiment rise to an unrevised 84.6 extended the 0.7 August rise to 82.5, as Michigan sentiment climbed above the narrow 81.8-82.5 range of the prior four months, but remained below the 85.1 cycle-high from July of 2013. Today's lack of an upward headline revision breaks the pattern of consistent boosts in every prior month of 2014, though the average size of the monthly boost has fallen in half to 0.9 this year from a larger 1.8 average in 2013. For other surveys, the RBC-IPSOS index rose to a 52.4 cycle-high from 51.5, versus a 51.8 prior cycle-high in March that was also seen last June. The IBD/TIPP index rose to 45.2 from 44.5, versus a 54.0 cycle-high in October of 2012. The weekly Bloomberg Consumer Comfort index has slipped through the first three weeks of September to a most recent 35.5 from averages of 37.0 in August and a cycle-high 37.1 in July, versus a 36.4 temporary high in July of 2013. Analysts expect a September consumer confidence drop to 91.0 from a cycle-high 92.4 in August, versus last year's temporary June peak of 82.1.

10:10 EDTTreasury Action: yields have simmered down
Treasury Action: yields have simmered down after the knee-jerk reaction to Gross's departure from PIMCO, which spread to high yield and peripheral bonds too. The as expected unrevised U. Michigan release left no discernable mark, though the T-note yield pulled back from 2.55% session highs to the 2.52% area after vaulting from 2.50% earlier. Stocks remain jittery too after yesterday's fund portfolio liquidation, which was confirmed today as BlueCrest.
