17:30 EDTU.S. Initial Jobless Claims Preview
U.S. Initial Jobless Claims Preview: Claims data for the week of May 23rd is out Thursday and should reveal a headline of 280k (median 271k) following last week's increase to 274k from 264k in the week prior to that. Claims have struck a lean path in May and look poised to average 270k from 281k in April. This would support our forecast for headline employment of 215k for the month.

16:15 EDTCanada Industrial Product Price Preview
Canada Industrial Product Price Preview: Analysts expect the IPPI, due Thursday, to fall 0.1% m/m in April (median -0.1%) after the 0.3% gain in March. Analysts have a witches' brew of ingredients for the April IPPI forecast: Gasoline prices were roughly flat on a month average basis, the BoC's commodity price index surged while the Canadian dollar appreciated versus the USD (on a month average basis). Hence, the Forecast risk is all over the place, but analysts would lean towards the downside given the 2.2% appreciation in the CAD versus the USD. The RMPI is projected to rise 3.0% in April as oil prices rose +12.5% to $54/bbl from $48/bbl.
15:05 EDTTreasury Closing Summary:
Treasury Closing Summary: An outbreak of optimism on Greece was set in motion by lopsided comments from PM Tsipras, who suggested that a draft deal with Greece's creditors was close. Though that urgent hope was largely discredited by those same creditors, it was not before a surge in risk-on trade drove yields, stocks and the euro to session highs, in contrast to the morose tone in the markets the day prior. The lack of data ensured that the markets would be more reactive to such posturing. 5-year auction results were mixed, but mostly bond friendly, while Bill Gross of Janus revisited his Bund short bet that raced ahead of his fund's execution.

13:55 EDTU.S. equities continue to forge higher
U.S. equities continue to forge higher into the close despite the Greek accord draft optimism being largely dis-credited and the euro stalling out again under $1.09. If nothing else, this episode seemed to flag risk-on activity as the bigger short-term risk for stocks, yields and the dollar. The NASDAQ has clambered back over 1.15% higher and pulled up the blue chips by 0.8% or so, while the S&P 500 life high of 2,134.72 from May 20 lies just above. The VIX equity volatility index after gapping from lows of 11.82 this week to session highs of 14.63 Tuesday, has since retreated to session lows of 13.10 again.

13:15 EDTTreasury's 5-year auction was so-so
Treasury's 5-year auction was so-so. The note stopped through at 1.560% versus 1.565% at the bid deadline (and is much cheaper than April's 1.380%). That was one of the better attributes of the offering. There were $86.0 B in bids for a 2.46 cover, below both 2.56 last month and the 2.60 average. Indirect bidders accepted 58.5% compared to the 61.2% previously and the 55.5% average. Direct bidders took 10.0%, about double the 5.6% from April, while primary dealers accepted 31.6% versus 33.2%.

12:10 EDTFX Action: USD-JPY topped out at 123.87
FX Action: USD-JPY topped out at 123.87, after briefly pulling back from the July, 2007 high of 123.66, seen ahead of the N.Y. open. The June, 2007 high of 124.14 remains the next target, though will have to get through reported offers into the 124 mark first. One needs to go back nearly 13 years, to June, 2002 to find a higher USD-JPY level, a year that printed a 134.80 pinnacle. Despite recent Japan policymaker talk of no more stimulus, the ultra loose monetary policies of Abenomics are still likely to be in force when the Fed eventually does reach rate hike lift-off, perhaps as early as September, and as a result, USD-JPY may well make 13 year highs sooner than later.

11:10 EDTTreasury Option Action: mixed positioning
Treasury Option Action: mixed positioning has been the rule in otherwise fairly quiet trade, according to sources. Among them was a bullish purchase of 5k in July 131 calls, a bearish purchase of 2k in July 126.5/125/123.5 put butterflies and a bearish sale of 2k in July 127.5/129 call 1x2s. There was also a combined bid for 1k in September 123.5 puts vs a sale of 1.25k in September 121.5 puts and sale of 1k in September 121 puts. Meanwhile, Sep 10s are now 8.5-ticks lower near 127-005 compared to 127-05 to 127-07 at the time of these deals, following the rash of optimism on a Greek draft deal with its creditors.
