14:15 EDTTreasury Action: yields flip-flopped
Treasury Action: yields flip-flopped after the FOMC minutes, first zigging lower to dip below 2.24% on the 10-year before zagging back over 2.27% for a little volatility after the minutes relative to the quagmire in advance. The Fed is still leaning toward a temporary slowdown, but there were a lot of caveats that remain to be dispelled. The majority did reject a June hike, however, which was a known risk in advance. Stocks remain baffled, while the dollar has rebounded.

14:04 EDTMost Fed members expect moderate economic expansion after Q1
The Federal Reserve stated in the latest minutes, "Most participants expected that, following the slowdown in the first quarter, real economic activity would resume expansion at a moderate pace, and that labor market conditions would improve further. Inflation continued to run below the Committee's longer-run objective, partly reflecting earlier declines in energy prices and decreasing prices of non-energy imports."

13:45 EDTTreasury Option Action: mixed positioning
Treasury Option Action: mixed positioning has prevailed over the course of the session. Among them were some 10k in bullish purchases of calls, call spreads and butterflies, with strikes mostly in the 127-128 zone. On the bearish side were buyers of 1.5k in July 125 puts, 2k in June 127/126.5 put 1x2s and sales of 5k in June/Sep 125.5/124.5 put spreads in a calendar roll. June 10s are still up marginally ahead of the Fed minutes in dull trade, rising 5-ticks to 127-06, compared to their 127-10 to 126-275 session range.

10:35 EDTTreasury Action: Treasuries are outperforming core European sovereigns
Treasury Action: Treasuries are outperforming core European sovereigns, reversing the trend from Monday and Tuesday. Sources say profit taking on the spread, which hit an intraday wide of 170 bps Tuesday (and was the widest since May 1), has supported the T-note this morning, while Greek fears worry Bund investors. The Treasury-Bund pairing has squeezed down to 166 bps from over 169 bps yesterday, after gapping out 7 bps to 158 bps on Monday. Again much of the action is more a function of positioning rather than fundamentals. The advent of the Memorial Day holiday weekend in the U.S. and month-end are also reportedly impacting. Note that Barclays' estimates the June 1 extension at 0.13 years, large but about average for a refunding month.

09:54 EDTAverages open quietly, slightly lower in early trading
Stock futures firmed during the pre-market trading session and traded near fair value. The futures action led to a quiet open for the broader market, which is now down slightly in early trading. Investors will be waiting on the energy inventory levels for clues on the potential direction of oil prices as well as the minutes from the last FOMC meeting for indications of any monetary policy shift. In early trading, the Dow is down 21 points, the Nasdaq is down 16 points and the S&P is down 4 points.
