11:40 EDTTreasury Option Action: a couple of bearish trades
Treasury Option Action: a couple of bearish trades included the purchase of 3k in October 123.5/124.5 put spreads and 5k in October 124.5/125.5 put spreads on 10-year futures. This is against the grain of today's rally, as September 10s are 5-ticks firmer near 126-125 compared to their 126-185 to 126-075 range.

10:20 EDTTreasury Action: a floor was put under yields
Treasury Action: a floor was put under yields at least temporarily in the wake of the solid bounce in the NAR PHSI, which saw stocks base for the moment as well. The T-note yield also paused above the 2.30% Aug-15 low that marked a 14-month low water mark, while Asian highs just under 2.36% may hold as well unless there's a late "deceased feline" bounce on stocks. The 2s-10s spread remains tight at +182 bp.

10:10 EDTEuro$ interest rate futures are moderately higher
Euro$ interest rate futures are moderately higher as stocks stumble after the open on Ukraine headlines, though upside momentum at the front-end of the rate spectrum has been checked by the unwinding of QE and approach of tightening. The September 2014 contract is flat at 99.7625, while the deferreds are 0.5-3.5 ticks firmer out the curve. If stocks continue to skid, the approach of the long weekend should ensure ready buyers on any dips.

09:40 EDTFX Action: USD-CAD bounced off of bids
FX Action: USD-CAD bounced off of bids seen into 1.0830, basing at 1.0837 before moving back into 1.0860. The sider than expected current account deficit may have prompted some short covering, though position paring into Friday's GDP data, and month end, may continue to see the CAD soften some. USD-CAD gains are expected to be limited to 1.0890, where additional sellers lie.

08:45 EDTTreasury Action: yields poked higher
Treasury Action: yields poked higher in the wake of the upward revision on Q2 GDP and dip in jobless claims, though neither was really ground breaking. Stocks pared some losses as well, though they remain under the thrall of the escalation of the Ukraine conflict with Russia's apparent breach of border etiquette. The T-note yield dove as deep as 2.32% overnight, stopping shy of the 2.30% Aug-15 low before rebounding to 2.35% again. Look for 2.40-2.44% to continue to cap on the upside into the long weekend.
