May 5, 2015
10:25 EDTGoldman cut Q1 GDP tracking estimate to -0.5%
Goldman cut Q1 GDP tracking estimate to -0.5% from +0.2% following the trade deficit explosion, which is a bit more aggressive than our own cut to -0.2% from +0.2%. Yet the bond market is getting little relief from this revisionism after the employment components of both Markit and ISM services PMIs ticked higher. Meanwhile, "good news is bad news" equities have extended their declines as the cost of capital and buybacks goes up and Fed lift-off sentiment remains finely balanced.
10:20 EDTThe U.S. ISM-NMI April pop to 57.8
The U.S. ISM-NMI April pop to 57.8 reversed the March drop to 56.5 to leave the measure just below the 58.8 nine-year high in November. The ISM-adjusted measure rose to 56.4 from a 55.1 one-year low in March to leave the same 56.4 seen in February, versus a 58.1 eight-year high in November. The ISM-NMI chased the factory sentiment measures lower from November highs before today's bounce. For the April factory surveys, analysts saw an unchanged ISM at a lean 51.5, a Chicago PMI rise to 52.3 from 46.3 in March and a 45.8 five-year low in February, a Dallas Fed up-tick to a still-weak -16.0 from a -17.4 four-year low that was also seen in April of 2013, a Richmond Fed rise to -3.0 from -8.0, a Philly Fed rise to 7.5 from 5.0, and an Empire State decline to -1.19 from 6.90. The mix allowed the ISM-adjusted average of the major surveys to bounce to 51 from 50 in March, 52 in January and February, 53 in December, 55 over the four months ending in November, and a 56 cycle-high last July.
10:15 EDTTreasury Action: still more carnage
Treasury Action: still more carnage followed the uptick in ISM services, which was accompanied by the highest reading on the employment component since October and a decent jump in new orders to boot. The T-note ramped over 2.19%, extending its rise from 2.11% lows and inching closer to the 2.259% March 6 high, which is probably safe until the payrolls report. The 2s-10s spread has steepened out another 4 basis points to +157 bp, while the 5s-30s is out to +136 bp.
10:10 EDTU.S. ISM services index rose to 57.8 in April
U.S. ISM services index rose to 57.8 in April, better than expected, after dipping to 56.5 in March. This is the highest reading since November's 58.8 (a 9 year high). The business activity index improved to 61.6 from 57.5. The employment component was little changed at 56.7 versus 56.6. New orders climbed to 59.2 from 57.8. New export orders dropped to 48.5 from 59.0. Prices paid slipped to 50.1 from 52.4.

10:00 EDTTreasury Action: and yields back to highs again
Treasury Action: and yields back to highs again following the final Markit PMI services employment component "at the highs since June on a final basis." That was enough to rattle the bond markets nerves ahead of Friday's payrolls. The T-note yield shot to 2.16% 1.5-month highs from the 2.14% area. That sets up the market for a follow up from ISM services shortly, seen steady.

09:45 EDTTreasury Action: stabilization in Bunds is helping slow the selloff
Treasury Action: stabilization in Bunds is helping slow the selloff over the last couple of weeks since hitting an all-time low yield at 0.075% on April 20. It's been nearly a one-way trip higher since then, pressuring Treasury yields northward too. Sources say bearish momentum if finally flattening and more two-way flows are expected as long as the 10-year rate doesn't surpass 2.20%. And though better buying out of Japan has been noted of late, domestic accounts may remain sidelined into the jobs report where a decent increase of about 220k is forecast. Sources also hesitate to say the bond market is oversold, though the JPMorgan "all" Treasury client survey showed the most net shorts since September 22.
09:36 EDTMarket begins session slighlty in the red
Stock futures were in negative territory throughout the pre-market trading session, leading to a lower open for the broader market. Yesterday’s session saw the market move in a narrow range as the news flow was fairly slow except for items being released from the Ira Sohn conference. With the economic calendar relatively quiet again today, the market may be range bound once again. In early trading, the Dow is down 8 points, the Nasdaq is down 11 points and the S&P is flat.
