08:45 EDTTreasury 5-year auction outlook:
Treasury 5-year auction outlook: the 5-year is a richer this morning on the coattails of a global rally in bonds. The wi is down 3.5 basis points to 1.645%. Though traders would like some concession today, a stop here would be one of the cheapest over the last three years and that could be a plus for the auction. Additionally, the 149 bp spread to the German sovereign should be attractive, particularly amid heightened expectations for further stimulus from ECB's Draghi at next week's policy meeting. As with today, analysts could see some profit taking on curve flatteners, particularly the 5s-30s gap which is at 149 bps, in from 162 bps on August 18. The July note stopped at 1.720% and garnered a 2.81 cover (2.70 average) and a 48.2% indirect bid (45.8%).

The euro had dropped across-the-board during the Asian session, led specifically by a large dose of EUR-CAD selling.

USD-JPY pulled back below 104.00 after capping out in Tokyo a pip shy of yesterday's 104.17 peak. While EUR-USD found its feet, the euro was weak elsewhere, making a 10-month low against the Australian dollar, for instance, and a two-week low versus sterling. Data was euro negative, with German import price inflation dipping to -1.7% y/y from -1.2%, and consumer confidence missing the median forecast, while France posted weak business confidence and order book numbers.

04:45 EDTFX Action: USD-JPY has ben struggling to hold gains
FX Action: USD-JPY has ben struggling to hold gains above the 104.00 mark, presently trading around 103.90 after capping out in Tokyo at 104.16, one pip shy of yesterday's peak and Monday's seven-month high at 104.27. Good offers are reported above 104.00, related to month-end and the approach of the end of the first half of Japan's fiscal year. Overall, directional bias is pretty limited presently. Friday's brings the usual slew of month-end data releases out of Japan, including CPI, industrial production, and labour market numbers, which analysts expect to be net negative for the yen. (see calendar for forecasts). With the JGB 10-year benchmark yield, presently at 0.50%, hovering near 16-month lows, analysts remain USD-JPY bullish on the yield differential basis, anticipating a move to 105.00. Support is now marked at 103.50, 102.90 and 102.53 (200-day moving average).
