10:20 EDTTreasury Action: Treasury auctions $90 B in coupons next week
Treasury Action: Treasury auctions $90 B in coupons next week, along with an FRN, and the issues should need to cheapen to see a decent bid, especially the shorter notes. The offerings include a $26 B 2-year note on Monday, a $35 B 5-year note Tuesday, as well as the $13 B 2-year FRN reopening, and a $29 B 7-year note Wednesday. The auctions were advanced from their usual timing due to Thursday's Thanksgiving Day holiday and short set-up time and the light volume during the week may make for sloppy auctions. Also, the likely Fed tightening in December may limit demand. On the other hand, foreign accounts should provide a lot of support, especially with more easing expected from the ECB in December which should further widen spreads to Treasuries. The wi 2-year trades at 0.915% which would be the highest award rate since April 2010, but it might not be cheap enough with a Fed hike on the way. The wi 5-year is at 1.67%, and the 7-year at 2.01%, which would be the highest since June and July, respectively.
10:09 EDTMarket on pace to close week with four out of five winning sessions
Stock futures were firm during the pre-market session, leading to a higher open for the broader market. If early levels hold, the market can end the week on a positive note as it begins to look forward to next week's holiday followed by the Black Friday shopping day. The economic calendar will be quiet today, but investors will continue to monitor the latest terror situation, which occurred in Mali last night. In early trading, the Dow is up 149 points, the Nasdaq is up 25 points and the S&P is up 13 points.

09:25 EDTSt. Louis Fed centrist Bullard largely repeated remarks
St. Louis Fed centrist Bullard largely repeated remarks made at a prepared speech on November 6, according to headlines, leaving any Q&A tape bombs as the only risk from here. Previously he spoke in the wake of the "very good" October jobs report that day, effectively a sign of full employment, noting that the case for lift-off was compelling and would show confidence in the economy. Once the dollar and oil stabilize he anticipated inflation targeting 2% with potential wage gains ahead given employment trends. For more detail, see our Fedspeak file.
09:10 EDTFX Action: USD-CAD initially rallied
FX Action: USD-CAD initially rallied following the mix of Canadian data, where the soft retail sales were the initial driver. Slightly warmer than expected CPI data however, offset, resulting in the pairing's slip lower. From 1.3320, USD-CAD popped to intra day highs of 1.3339 before falling back to 1.3283 intra day lows. The paring has since recovered the 1.33 handle, as the market again eyes oil prices, which have softened from overnight highs.

08:25 EDTCanada CPI Preview
Canada CPI Preview: Analysts expect CPI to slow to a 0.9% y/y pace in October (median +1.0%) following the 1.0% y/y growth rate in September as lower gasoline prices again exert a drag. CPI is seen falling 0.1% on a month comparable basis in October after the 0.2% drop in September. Core CPI is projected to grow at a 2.1% y/y pace in October (median same at +2.1%), matching the 2.1% in September. The BoC's core CPI index is seen rising 0.3% m/m in October, a bit stronger than the 0.2% gains seen in August and September.
08:20 EDTU.S. equities are again firmer
U.S. equities are again firmer in the face of terrorism, weaker data and more dovish signals from ECB's Draghi, which left European bourses mildly firmer after a muted Asian session. 170 hostages were taken at the Radisson Blu hotel in Mali, though 80 have since been freed by special forces. Yet oil is another 1% lower, near $40 on WTI. The Dow is 75-points firmer, S&P climbed 6-points and NASDAQ is 12-points firmer ahead of the opening gong (after being dented Thursday by UnitedHealth's threat to opt-out of the costly ACA). This followed gains in Europe on the Euro Stoxx 50 of 0.12% and 0.3% on the German DAX, while the French CAC is flat. In Asia, Japan's Nikkei gained only 0.1% and the Shanghai Comp rose 0.37%, though the HK Hang Seng jumped 1.01%. Nike surged over 4% after announcing a $12 B stock buyback and 2-for-1 split. Intuit rallied 12% after beating estimates and Square tacked on another 3% after its IPO. Fedspeak from Bullard and Dudley is on tap later.

07:50 EDTTreasury Market Outlook: bonds are little changed but with a hint of red
Treasury Market Outlook: bonds are little changed but with a hint of red on the screens. Trading volume was light. Stocks are mixed, with U.S. equity futures suggesting a positive opening, while core European bourses are a little lower. Asian stocks closed higher. The markets are monitoring a terror attack in Mali where hostages are being held in a luxury hotel. ECB chief Draghi said "low core inflation is not something that analysts can be relaxed about," which pretty much seals the deal for more easing in December, and that weighed on EUR. German PPI dropped back to a -2.3% y/y pace. Zinc surged over 5%, after 10 smelters in China announced jointly that they will cut production by 500k tonnes in 2016. Zinc hit 6-year lows earlier this week on oversupply conditions. Fedspeak highlights in the U.S. today, amid an empty economic calendar. The earnings calendar see quarterly numbers from Abercrombie & Fitch, and Foot Locker.
