10:45 EDTU.S. equities extended opening declines
U.S. equities extended opening declines led by the tech-laden NASDAQ, which tumbled over 1.4% lower as the investor retrenchment continues. Weaker stocks in Europe are compounding the move, with the Euro Stoxx 50 1.1% lower and the Italian MIB now down over 2.3%. The airline sector has been under pressure given elevated fuel price and after Air France-KLM cut its profit forecasts, sinking nearly 8%. Among the biggest losers in the Dow have been Verizon -1.6%, Boeing -1.6% and AT&T -1.4%, with Goldman -1.3% down again today. On the topside are Wal-Mart +0.4% and P&G +0.4%. This could heighten sensitivity to bipolar Fedspeak later, as investors brace for more clues on the tightening path. The VIX equity volatility index ramped another 8% higher to 12.23 from 11.72 lows.

09:35 EDTTreasury 3-year auction outlook:
Treasury 3-year auction outlook: Treasury is selling $27 B in notes, down from June's $28 B. The drop in size is supportive for the bid cover. The wi has dipped to 1.00% after having cheapened to 1.035% yesterday. This could be the first 1.0% coupon on the 3-year since the spring of 2011, and that could bring in some buyers. Many have been looking for an opportunity to get back in the market. The note is also cheaper on the curve, and compared to European sovereigns. However, with many pushing up the timing of the Fed's first rate hike after strong employment data and an improving economy, some buyers could be sidelined, especially ahead of what could be hawkishly tinged FOMC Minutes due out tomorrow. The June auction was awarded at 0.930% and saw a 3.41 bid cover (3.33 average) and a 26.5% indirect (33.2% average). Direct bidders took 19.4% while primary dealers were awarded 54.1%.

08:50 EDTU.S. equities spilled lower again
U.S. equities spilled lower again after weakness in global stocks came to roost again following the tepid session and retreat yesterday on Wall Street. There is still a fairly lean economic calendar stateside, though Fedspeak from Lacker and Kocherlakota could give the markets pause. Japan's Nikkei sank 0.42% as Typhoon Neoguri sped up the coast with minimal damage so far, while the Shanghai Comp rose 0.2% and the Euro Stoxx 50 is off 0.45%, with the Italian MIB over 1.2% lower. Focus remains on the start of the Q2 earnings season with Alcoa after the close and several financial names on tap starting later in the week. The Dow is 23-points lower, S&P fell 4-points and NASDAQ is off 3-points ahead of the opening bell. Groupon rallied over 4% after an upgrade from B. Riley. Macqaurie Infrastructure surged 5% after buying the remaining stake in International-Matex Tank Terminals.

08:00 EDTTreasury Market Outlook: Treasuries are a little firmer
Treasury Market Outlook: Treasuries are a little firmer, in conjunction with gains in core sovereign bonds, as a risk-off mood took hold overnight. The 10-year yield is down 2 bps at 2.605%. U.K. Gilts outperformed after an unexpected decline in industrial production. Other data overnight showed a widening in Japan's current account, as well as in Germany's May trade surplus, while Swiss CPI was below forecasts. Stocks are lower. Today's calendar remains thin with just May JOLTS, May consumer credit, and weekly chain store sales. The Treasury auctions $27 B in 3-year notes which kicks off $61 B in coupon offerings. There is Fedspeak from Lacker and Kocherlakota late in the session. The NY Fed will purchase $1.0 B to $1.25 B in bonds ranging from February 15, 2036 through May 15, 2044. The markets await the release of the FOMC Minutes Wednesday.
