13:55 EDTJanus' Gross October Investment Outlook was a hair late
Janus' Gross October Investment Outlook was a hair late this time around, which was understandable considering his hasty retreat from PIMCO across the street to his new offices. But he's wasting little time in carrying on the tradition with a moral lesson called "You Only Dance Twice". The upshot is similar to his video pitch earlier in the week for the new "unconstrained bond fund" - i.e. in a low return environment look for a shorter-duration return revved up by currency overlay, along with a blend of higher emerging market returns.
13:25 EDTAction Economics Survey Results:
Action Economics Survey Results: TGIF! What a jumpy week it's been in the markets, with huge 200 to 300 point daily swings in the Dow and a double digit drop in the 10-year Treasury yield. Growth fears, geopolitical risks, monetary policy uncertainties, and ongoing positioning on the PIMCO surprise continue to reverberate. Holidays in the U.S., Canada, and Japan could further complicate trading near term. The abbreviated U.S. trading week will include a number of key data points, not to mention Fedspeakers, and a pick up in earnings announcements. The Survey medians point to some pretty lackluster results that might further weigh on investor sentiment and add to expectations the FOMC will be very patient with its policy course. Headline retail sales are forecast slipping 0.1%, with the ex-auto number rising 0.2%. Producer prices are expected to remain subdued. And the Empire State and Philly Fed indexes are expected to reflect some slowing in activity, though industrial production is expected to bounce back.

11:40 EDTThe U.S. VIX equity volatility index shot over 22.0
The U.S. VIX equity volatility index shot over 22.0 to fresh cycle highs with all the renewed selling pressure on stocks via Europe and semis, marking a high of 22.08 before pulling back to 19.50. That took the VIX through 21.91 prior-year highs and through a series of spike highs in the interim, with December 31, 2012, highs of 23.23 the next upside target and 27.73 from June 2012 if things get really ugly. European shares remain bearish into their close, though typically there has been a daily pop on Wall Street after that event. But perhaps its no coincidence that vol is making a comeback as the end of Fed QE approaches.

10:45 EDTJanus' Gross Tweeted: "The New Natural policy rate is 0%
Janus' Gross Tweeted: "The New Natural policy rate is 0% real and 2% nominal for the U.S. For EZ and Japan it is lower. Adjust valuations to this concept." Apparently he has no compunctions about borrowing themes incubated at his former employer PIMCO.
10:15 EDTEuro$ interest rate options: a large package
Euro$ interest rate options: a large package included the sale of 20k Short June 80/82 put spreads vs a purchase of 80k Jun 90/91 put spreads, paying 3 for the full package. Other deals came in the form of a sale of 10k in Long Red December 2015 87 puts in block trade, a purchase of 5k Short September broken put 80/77/76 butterflies (bought wings). There was also a purchase of 5k in Front December 93/96 put 1x2s (buying the 1st leg). December 2014s are flat at 99.77, but the deferreds are 0.5-2.0 ticks firmer out the curve as stocks gyrate.
09:55 EDTStocks bounced from lows reportedly on Ukraine news
Stocks bounced from lows reportedly on Ukraine news that Kiev agreed to withdraw from several cities in Eastern Ukraine. Donetsk rebels reportedly signed a demarkation line, but this could be overly optimistic in that it came from the Russian Information Agency (RIA). Indeed, while Wall Street cut much deeper overnight lossess into the open, somebody forgot to tell European equities which remain deeply underwater with the Euro Stoxx 50 -1% lower and the DAX -1.8%. Ukraine has not really been on equity radar screens of late anyway, more so the associated triple-dip recession risk in Europe and the spread of Ebola in Spain.

09:15 EDTPhilly Fed hawkish dissenter Plosser: policy should be data dependent
Philly Fed hawkish dissenter Plosser: policy should be data dependent and not date-dependent. He's concerned that the Fed statements imply the Fed wants to hit the unemployment goal ASAP and he is worried that the Fed is shifting focus between the dual employment and inflation mandates. He also suggests the Fed prepare quarterly comprehensive policy reports for Congress, though that is likely to go over like a lead balloon with his peers in terms of Fed independence.
