09:05 EDTEnergy Action: NYMEX crude printed three-week highs
Energy Action: NYMEX crude printed three-week highs of $32.92/bbl, as the market continues to hold out hope for some sort of production cut agreement between OPEC and Russia. The lack of concrete news on the subject however, could end in tears for oil bulls, as fundamentals remain bearish, with supply continuing to overrun demand. The next upside target comes in at $33.20, the January 11 peak, with support now seen at $32.00. RBOB gasoline futures are up 4 cents/gallon at $1.0880. The February contract expires at the close today, leaving March as front-month, which is currently trading at $1.123.

EUR-USD rallied to seven-session highs of 1.0928 from near 1.0910, as USD-JPY fell from 118.85 toward 118.70. Equity futures pared back their gains, as yields stumbled.

08:45 EDTTreasury Action: yields took a fresh dive
Treasury Action: yields took a fresh dive following the slump in durable goods orders and jobless claims. It would be hard to imagine that the 5.1% drop in volatile durables wasn't compounded by Boeing-style orders issues, which the -1.2% ex-transport reading seems to confirm, while drop in claims was close to expectations. The 2-year yield declined further after veering from 0.90% into the Fed yesterday, easing to 0.82%, while the T-note yield gapped under 1.99% from the 2.01% area. That's left the 2s-10s spread near +116 bp. Stocks are in shallow positive territory.
