10:30 EDTTreasury auction outlooks: Treasury is selling 5- and 7-year notes
Treasury auction outlooks: Treasury is selling 5- and 7-year notes, with the former rescheduled from Wednesday due to the snowstorm. The bid deadline for the 5-year was moved up to 11:30 ET. The unusual double-up could create some indigestion as the market will have to take down $64 B in notes today, especially following the big yield drop yesterday. However, the bond-friendly FOMC statement yesterday where the Fed hinted it might not hike rates by mid-year could be supportive, along with ongoing weakness in inflation expectations. The notes are cheapening a bit this morning, but so far set up has been poor and that may limit demand. The wi 5-year rate is up over 3 bps to 1.29%, while the wi 7-year is up 3 bps to 1.58%. Yet those would still be the richest rates since May 2013. The yield premium to core sovereigns overseas should also be supportive. Note the German 5-year trades at -0.033%, with the 7-year at 0.072%. Month-end and the 0.09 year duration extension should be marginally beneficial for the longer note.

10:05 EDTU.S. equities surrendered their opening gains
U.S. equities surrendered their opening gains and have turned lower, even as Europe turned back into the green and oil prices have rebounded. That's driven the VIX equity volatility index back up to session and 1-week highs over 20.73 into the NAR pending home sales index release.

09:43 EDTMarket mixed despite solid jobless claims data
Stock futures firmed following the weekly jobless claims, which represented the lowest initial claims during the present recovery cycle. The futures action led to a slightly higher open for the broader market, which is trying to break its current downtrend and reverse the last two days of major sell-offs. However, in early trading the major averages have already turned mixed, with the Dow the only equity index managing to stay in the green. About 15 minutes into the session, the Dow is up 13 points, the Nasdaq is down 19 points and the S&P is down 2 points.
09:40 EDTFX Action: USD-CAD is trading over 1.2550
FX Action: USD-CAD is trading over 1.2550, after making new highs of 1.2562 in London dealings earlier. As oil sticks close to its trend low, and the market ponders further BoC rate cuts, the CAD looks set to remain under pressure. Light buy stops are noted at 1.2570, with offers seen in place ahead of 1.2600. Support at 1.2500.
09:20 EDTTreasury Option Action: early bullish positioning
Treasury Option Action: early bullish positioning may be helping keep a floor under the 10-year futures after a purchase of 7k in March 133 calls was spotted, along with a 3k purchase of April 132.5/133 call spreads and 5k in March 133/134 call spreads. March 10s are 6.5-ticks lower near 130-085 compared to their 130-17 to 130-04 range.
09:05 EDTU.S. equities snapped higher
U.S. equities snapped higher in the wake of the 43k plunge in jobless claims, reversing some of their earnings-, oil- and Fed-induced collapse on Wednesday, though the 15-year low in the claims data was likely distorted by the MLK holiday week, which the BLS acknowledged. The Dow is 68-points firmer, S&P gained 6-points and NASDAQ is up 7-points ahead of the opening bell, well below overnight highs. This followed declines in Europe and Asia, with the Euro Stoxx 50 0.4% lower, while Japan's Nikkei sank 1.06% and the Shanghai Comp was 1.3% lower. Corporate news featured a 3% rise in McDonald's after it confirmed a new CEO, while Alibaba sank 7.5% after missing forecasts, which pulled down Yahoo too after it announced plans to divest in its stake this week. Qualcomm sank 7% after slashing profit forecasts as well, but Coach and Ford gained after posting better than expected profits. Up next is the NAR pending home sales report.
