11:35 EDTU.S. corporate bond update: two big deals dominate the landscape today
U.S. corporate bond update: two big deals dominate the landscape today, with issuance otherwise light. Walgreens Boots Alliance has a massive 8-parter (multi-currency deal), with each tranche of benchmark size. This includes an 18-month FRN, a 3-year fixed and/or FRN, along with 5-, 7-, 10-, 20-, and 30-year issues. ConocoPhillips has a 4-parter, including benchmark 7-, 10-, 20-, and 30-year debt. IG issuance totaled nearly $15 B yesterday. Year-to-date sales total $1.232 tln. Next week the Treasury holds its November refunding, totaling $66 B in coupons.

10:30 EDTToday's U.S. reports
Today's U.S. reports revealed a tight initial claims reading as analysts approach tomorrow's jobs report, where analysts still peg payroll growth at 220k, though markets will likely brace for an upside surprise given tight claims, yesterday's firm 230k ADP figure, and upside surprises for the late-October producer sentiment and consumer confidence reports that defied the mid-month financial market Ebola-scare -- which unfortunately coincided with the BLS survey week. Analysts also saw a solid but expected 2.0% Q3 productivity rise that exactly matched the trend-growth rate of the last two expansion, with above trend output and hours-worked growth in both Q2 and Q3 as the quarterly figures continue to recover from the big winter-hit in Q1.

10:10 EDTTreasury Option Action: volatility has drifted lower
Treasury Option Action: volatility has drifted lower after an otherwise quiet start on the options side. This dovetailed with a sale of 1.5k in 126 put/126+ call strangles and a sale of 1k in 2-week 125+/126+ call strangles. In the 10-year, there was a bearish buyer of January 125/123.5/122 put butterflies (4k x 8k x 3k). Also, in terms of combos, there was a buyer of 2.5k in January 124 put/127+ call combos (bought the put) and a seller of 4k in February 123+ put/128 call combos (sold put). December 10s are 4-ticks lower near 126-05 compared to a 126-15 to 126-015 session range after the dovish ECB press conference washed out the rate complex.

09:40 EDTMarket has relatively quiet open
Stock futures improved slightly during the pre-market trading session but remained near fair value. The improvement was attributed to the better than expected non-farm productivity report for the third quarter, as well as statements made in Europe by ECB president Mario Draghi regarding the potential for further actions by the central bank. The market is now on jobs watch, as tomorrow investors will see the release of the monthly non-farm payrolls. With the market at all-time highs, investors may sit on the sidelines awaiting the release rather than putting new money to work. In early trading, the Dow is up 8 points, the Nasdaq is down 3 points and the S&P is down 1 point.
