September 11, 2014
11:15 EDTToday's U.S. QSS service consumption data
Today's U.S. QSS service consumption data for Q2 suggests a modest $5 B boost in service consumption in the next GDP report, and analysts now assume a boost in headline real Q2 GDP growth to 4.4% from 4.2%. For other revisions, analysts expect Q2 boosts of $7 B for construction and $2 B for net exports, but downward revisions of $2 B for wholesale inventories and $4 B for factory inventories. Analysts assume Q3 GDP growth OF 2.8%, with a 2.0% growth rate for Q3 consumption. Today's QSS data reveal a 6.5% Q2 nominal growth clip after a lean 1.5% Q1 rate and 7.7% pace in Q4 of last year, versus nominal service growth of 3.4% in Q2, 3.7% in Q1, and 6.1% in Q4. The hospital sector posted a Q2 growth bounce to 10.6% after a 5.7% contraction rate in Q1 and 13.7% growth rate in Q4 of last year, to leave what is still a notable net underperformance for the health care sector in 2014.

09:43 EDTMarket opens lower as country commemorates 2001 attack
Stock futures weakened during the pre-market trading session, leading to a lower open for the broader market. Initial jobless claims came in higher than expected and the economic calendar is relatively quiet for the remainder of the day, with the natural gas storage change report and the Treasury budget for August due later. Last night the President outlined the U.S. strategy against ISIL on the eve of the commemoration of the September 11, 2001 attack. In early trading, the Dow is down 54 points, the Nasdaq is down 12 points and the S&P is down 5 points.
09:35 EDTFX Action: USD-JPY was smacked down to 106.65
FX Action: USD-JPY was smacked down to 106.65, after posting trend highs of 107.14 into the N.Y. open. The market appeared to have gotten a bit ahead of itself after taking out the 107 mark, with intra day longs bailing out on the return under 107. Offers are said to be thick from 107.15 all the way to 107.50, though following comments overnight from the BoJ's Kuroda, further yen strength may be fleeting. The central bank chief said he would not hesitate to ease again in order to achieve the CPI target.

09:05 EDTU.S. equities slumped with European bourses
U.S. equities slumped with European bourses turning lower again as concerns about centrifugal forces on the continent give rise to fresh investor doubts following recent poll swings in Scotland. In addition, confirmation of the latest round of EU sanctions on Russia added to the bearish mix, leaving Russian shares 0.6-1.2% lower. The Euro Stoxx 50 is 0.5% lower, while in Asia the Nikkei rallied 0.76% thanks to USD-JPY trespassing over 6-year highs of 107.00. The Dow is 76-points lower, S&P sank 9-points and NASDAQ is off 16-points ahead of the opening bell. The 11k rebound in jobless claims wasn't particularly helpful, keeping focus on the downside. After stoking yesterday's rally following the UBS upgrade on Twitter, that micro-blogging firm sank after announcing plans to raise $1.5 B via convertible bonds. Amazon fell with the approach of the Alibaba IPO taking a toll. RadioShack remains volatile amid ongoing speculation over its dissolution and rescue.

08:45 EDTTreasury Action: yields remained steady below highs
Treasury Action: yields remained steady below highs following the rebound in jobless claims that exceeded expectations, but weren't entirely a surprise given recent softness in jobs stats. The 10-year yield is holding under 2.52% relative to opening stock market weakness compared to 2.54% near the Tuesday close, with room for another stab to 2.50% or below at 2.44% if stocks continue to unwind. The 2s-10s spread is trading slightly narrower just inside +197 bp.

08:40 EDTU.S. initial jobless claims rose 11k to 315k in the week ended September 6
U.S. initial jobless claims rose 11k to 315k in the week ended September 6, after rising 6k to 304k the week prior (revised from 302k). That brought the 4-week moving average to 304k from 303.25k (revised from 302.75k). Continuing claims rose 9k to 2,487k in the week ended August 30 after a 50k decline to 2,478k for the August 23 week (revised from 2,464k). The headline number is in contrast to expectations for a decline, but the Labor Day holiday may have impacted. Indeed, the BLS noted the difficulties in adjusting claims around holidays.
