02:40 EDTFX Update: EUR-USD is softer after peaking at 1.0817
FX Update: EUR-USD is softer after peaking at 1.0817 yesterday. This level and the 20-day moving average at 1.0801 mark near-to resistance. Recent gains have mostly been prompted by a run of softer U.S. data that has all but switched off chances of a Fed tightening as soon as June. The euro, meanwhile, has the benefit of signs of economic recovery, though ECB boss Draghi stressed this week that there would be no tapering of the QE program, while the Greek situation remains a significant wildcard risk factor. USD-JPY has been hovering around 119.00 after forming a base above the near two-week low that was seen on Wednesday at 118.79. Major Japanese funds have reportedly been buyers at sub-119 levels for s second day. USD-CAD struck a three-month low at 1.2251 on a combo of weaker U.S. data, the BoC's downplaying of the oil price shock on the Canadian economy, and a decent rally in oil prices this week. AUD-USD has settled to a consolidation after surging yesterday on the unexpectedly strong Australian March employment report.

More from Lockhart: June liftoff is still on the table, but it's not his preference, he said in speaking to reporters. He's like to see a later date for the initial rate hike. He reiterated he'd like to see more confirming evidence of the recovery, and that the stronger the evidence, the more orderly the subsequent the policy path will be. The FOMC's expectation is for a more gradual path of rates, but that too is data dependent.

12:25 EDTU.S. VIX equity volatility has drifted lower
U.S. VIX equity volatility has drifted lower to the 13.0 area as stocks find some traction from lows, compared to a very tight range of 13.35-12.95. Year lows of 10.28 set on July 3 of 2014 provide the next area of support, with life lows of 8.2 on July 4 1994 seemingly at odds with volatility expected surrounding the Fed rate lift-off later in the year. Compared to 16.66 April highs on the first of the month, this followed suit with the rebound in the S&P 500 from 2,048 lows on the same day to an April high of 2,111. That's a 13.8% gain from flash crash lows of 1,820 back on October 17th. In the meantime, another run at life highs of 2,119.59 set on February 25 doesn't seem much of a stretch, especially if earnings continue to shrug off the Q1 economic slump.
