14:30 EDTTreasury Action: trading is expected to remain fairly confined
Treasury Action: trading is expected to remain fairly confined until a few key upcoming events are out of the way, the April 29, 30 FOMC, the Advance Q1 GDP numbers on April 30, and the April employment data on May 2, and even then may remain locked inside recent ranges. Of course Ukraine tensions remain a wild card. The 5-year yield is expected to hover either side of 1.70%, having vacillated from 1.44% to 1.79% so far this year. Meanwhile, the 10-year is seen stuck around the 2.70% level. It's rotated down to this level from the 3.0% high to end 2013, but is off the 2.58% low from February 3. The FOMC may turn out to be the most uneventful as the Fed is expected to continue shaving $10 B from its asset purchases, while keeping the rest of its policy stance on hold. GDP may be viewed as old news too. Analysts forecast a slowdown in Q1 GDP to a 1.0% clip from 2.6% in Q4, but growth is expected to rebound to a 3.0% or better pace over the rest of the year. Nonfarm payrolls are expected to improve further and climb 200k.
14:00 EDTAverages modestly higher
The major equity indexes are modestly higher and trading in a tight range as the market looks to log its fifth straight day of gains. Market internals are positive, with advancing stocks leading decliners by 5:4 and up volume leading down volume by about the same margin, and volume is notably light. Crude oil and gold are both roughly flat. The Dow is up 36 points, the S&P 500 is up 5 points, and the Nasdaq is up 19 points.

12:20 EDTTreasury Option Action: 2-way flows remain fairly light
Treasury Option Action: 2-way flows remain fairly light, according to sources, though beneath the inert price action on underlying Treasury futures there have been a handful of decent trades mainly in the 10-year sector. Among them were a bullish buyer of 10k in May 124+/125 call 1x2s, a bullish seller of 8k in May 123 puts and bearish buyer of 10k in Jun 123 puts and 5k in May 123/123.5/124 put butterflies. As a package, a seller of 4k in Jun 123 puts vs purchase of 1k Jun 123.5 puts and 2k in Jun 122.5 puts was noted. Otherwise, on the vol front, there was a seller of 2.5k in May 121+put/124+call strangles. Sources are looking for a pullback on Jun 10s to the 123-00 area into the FOMC/payrolls vs +4 ticks and 123-28 presently.

11:05 EDTU.S. equities have tripped up again
U.S. equities have tripped up again with the NASDAQ sliding back down into the red and pulling the blue chips off their earlier highs. Ukraine jitters remain a feature, with the larger NY Fed Ops only a temporary bullish lubricant as even USD-JPY slips lower to 102.50. Russian loyalists in Eastern Ukraine have not relinquished government buildings there and the stand-off continues after weekend shootings, which as soured the de-escalation accords and left the markets a bit impatient with little else to trade on. Within the Dow the top gainers are Pfizer +1.3%, Home Depot +1.1% and IBM +1.0%, while biggest losers are Disney -1.5% and Intel -0.9%. The T-note yield has eased back below 2.70% as well, though it is unlikely to tread too much lower while awaiting supply; 2.596% marks April lows.

09:42 EDTMarket opens week in positive territory
Stock futures drifted lower during the pre-market trading session, though the broader market opened slightly higher. Investors will be watching the leading economic indicators, which are due out shortly, for clues on the economy. Investors are also bracing for another busy week in terms of earnings reports. Early in the session, the Dow is up 20 points, the Nasdaq is up 8 points and the S&P is up 3 points.
09:35 EDTEuro$ interest rate futures are too quiet
Euro$ interest rate futures are too quiet with the lack of momentum a common complaint as the markets attempt to get back up to steam following the break, but many trading flags still at half mast. There won't be much help from Fedspeak this week amidst the blackout period in front of the FOMC, while supply may hold the rate futures captive as well barring exogenous developments. The front Jun 2014 contract is, therefore, flat at 99.77, while the deferreds are 1-2 ticks higher further out.
