10:27 EDTMarket opens with moderate gains after big upside jobs surprise
Stock futures bounced around during the pre-market trading session following the release of the better than expected monthly nonfarm payrolls report. The knee-jerk reaction saw the futures move lower, then regroup to close above fair value by the end of the pre-market trading session. The futures action led to a moderately higher open, but the move is subdued given that the report showed the biggest monthly gain in nearly three years. In early trading, the Dow is up 46 points, the Nasdaq is up 13 points and the S&P is up 3 points.
10:15 EDTTreasury Action: yields have consolidated their rise
Treasury Action: yields have consolidated their rise in the wake of the weak factory orders readings, which drizzled on the payrolls parade, though didn't radically alter the upbeat paradigm. The T-note yield peaked over 2.33% earlier from whipsaw lows of 2.25% and has since settled back under 2.30%, though stocks opened higher after pausing to assess the monetary policy landscape. The 2s-10s spread remains narrow, however, near +167 bp as the front-end continues to underperform, while 5s-30s tightened to +129 bp.

09:05 EDTU.S. equities padded overnight gains
U.S. equities padded overnight gains after U.S. payrolls increased in a big 321k lump (biggest gain since January 2012), along with upward back revisions, and the jobless rate held at 5.8%. This was accompanied by a minor narrowing of the trade gap to -$43.4 B. The Dow is 44-points higher, S&P gained 2-points and NASDAQ is up 8-points in pre-open action, but the data could keep investors wary of an earlier than mid-2015 Fed policy normalization launch. This followed on the heels of modest gains in Asia and a big snap back recovery in Europe. Japan's N-225 rose just 0.19%, while the Shanghai Comp rallied another 1.32% and the Euro Stoxx 50 ramped 1.7% higher, though little changed after the payrolls report. Dollar Tree reportedly expects its $8.5 B merger with Family Dollar to close by February and ride sharing App Uber reportedly earned a $41 B valuation following its latest $1.2 B VC funding round. Up next are factory goods orders and consumer credit.

08:50 EDTU.S. trade deficit was little changed at $43.4 B in October
U.S. trade deficit was little changed at $43.4 B in October versus September's revised -$43.6 B (was -$43.0 B). Exports rebounded 1.2%, but didn't fully offset the 1.8% September drop. Imports edged up 0.9% after unchanged readings in the prior two months. The real trade balance was also steady at -$50.8 B versus September's -$50.9 B as real exports increased 2.4% with imports up 1.7%. Excluding petroleum, the deficit narrowed slightly to $28.2 B compared to the $29.6 B shortfall previously.

08:45 EDTTreasury Action: yields exploded higher
Treasury Action: yields exploded higher after the surprise ramp higher in nonfarm payrolls, along with upward back revisions, that put the labor sector on a sharper upward trajectory. That sent the T-note yield 7 bp higher from the 2.26% area to test 2.33% briefly, though still below the 2.407% November high for now. Stocks still appear like a deer in the headlights in terms of the Fed tightening outlook, so analysts'll just have to see how this plays out after the knee-jerk swings on yields. Indeed, the curve has flattened as the front-end underperforms. The dollar is of course sharply higher.
