12:50 EDTTreasury Action: yields are headed lower again
Treasury Action: yields are headed lower again after Fed VC Fischer, the number 2 at the Fed, didn't suggest a rate hike as soon as June is in the cards. The market had pared opening gains amid risks Fed officials would not sound as dovish as implied in last Wednesday's FOMC results, and following the upward drift in European sovereign rates. The benchmark 2-year has dipped back to 0.57% after testing 0.59% earlier. The 10-year rate has slid to 1.91%, just off the lows of the session. The market is expected to remain range bound near term awaiting more information on the policy outlook, with a number of important data releases, though no one number will be definitive. Meanwhile, a heavy supply calendar should put a floor under yields.
12:35 EDTFed VC Fischer: a rate hike is warranted before year-end
Fed VC Fischer: a rate hike is warranted before year-end and the Fed funds target will be set at each meeting based upon what members believe will best enable meeting both goals. He acknowledges, however, that the "benefits of global monetary accommodation may be offset by the appreciation of the dollar". Fischer sees NAIRU's approach and expects inflation will gradually arrise to target. He is concerned that extremely low rates will increase risks to financial stability, while ECB bond buying is putting downward pressure on U.S. yields. He is also concerned that the overnight repo has certain risks that could impact the structure of money markets, though use of supplementary tools will allow the Fed to raise short-term rates when appropriate. Fischer thinks the discussion should migrate towards the future path of interest rates, of which there remains considerable uncertainty. He is addressing the Economic Club of NY on "Monetary Policy Lessons and the Way Ahead" in this keynote speech as the wise second in command at the Fed. It's clear he's onboard with a hike, though he's blurred the lines on timing, similar to the last FOMC statement.

12:05 EDTU.S. VIX backed up from Friday lows of 12.54
U.S. VIX backed up from Friday lows of 12.54 to trade tightly near 13.30 compared to its session range of 13.53-13.10. Friday's low marked the lowest level in equity volatility since December 12 and well below highs of 25.20 also that month set as Greek concerns and Fed exits were dominating the headlines. Now the Fed is backtracking and the S&P 500 at 2,111 is eyeballing historic highs of 2,119.6 set on February 25 again, well up from March lows of 2,039.69, which roughly bounced off its 100-day m.a. at the time that has now shifted up to 2,054.89 as a rising floor from 2,002 at the start of the year. The 200-day m.a. is still way down at 2,008. This could suggest some room on the upside near-term to mark fresh life highs, while equally growing risk of a sharp mean reversion should earnings catch down with dollar strength.
