09:25 EDTTreasury 5-year TIPS auction:
Treasury 5-year TIPS auction: Treasury reopens $16 B in 5-year TIPS this afternoon. Yields on shorter dated issues are a little higher with the April 5-year at -0.294% versus -0.33% yesterday, which compare to the award rate of -0.213%. The updraft in yield should provide some underpinning to the auction, but in the midest of summer doldrums and with inflation still quite benign, demand should be lacking. The April auction saw a 2.70 cover and a 58.4% indirect bid. Analysts look for overseas accounts to again support this auction.

08:50 EDTThe 14k U.S. initial claims drop to 298k
The 14k U.S. initial claims drop to 298k in the August BLS survey week trimmed the prior 22k bounce to 312k (was 311k) from 290k at the start of the month to leave a five-week stretch of oscillations around lean claims since the depressing effect of auto retooling that left a 279k mid-July cycle-low. Claims are averaging 303k thus far in August, which is above the tight 296k July figure but well below prior averages of 315k in June and 312k in May. Today's 298k August BLS survey week reading sits below the tight 303k July figure, as well as previous BLS readings of 314k in June and 327k in May. Analysts assume a 210k August payroll gain that sits between the 209k July increase and the 214k average rise of the last twelve months, though analysts may see some August give-back of July strength for the goods-sector data as a temporary boost from firm July truck assembly rates is unwound. Payrolls face ongoing upside risk from tight claims, a firm Q3 producer sentiment and ADP trajectory, solid vehicle assembly rates, and an ongoing consumer confidence climb back above mid-2013 levels.

08:45 EDTFX Action: The dollar largely shrugged off
FX Action: The dollar largely shrugged off the slightly better than consensus jobless claims, with EUR-USD trading just under 1.3270, and USD-JPY hovering near 103.80. Trade will likely turn a bit more cautious going forward, where eyes will be on Yellen's Jackson Hole speech on Friday, and on the weekend, where some position paring may be in store in light of geopolitical risks.

08:40 EDTU.S. initial jobless claims dropped 14k to 298k in the week ended August 16
U.S. initial jobless claims dropped 14k to 298k in the week ended August 16, versus 312k previously (revised from 311k). That pushed the 4-week moving average to 300.75k versus 296k (revised from 295.75k). Continuing claims fell 49k to 2,500k in the week ended August 9, versus 2,549k (revised from 2,544k). The report is consistent with ongoing improvement in the labor market, and the initial jobless claims figure takes on greater importance as it coincides with the BLS survey week.

08:25 EDTOil Action: NYMEX crude is down 68 cents at $92.78/bbl
Oil Action: NYMEX crude is down 68 cents at $92.78/bbl. The October contract takes over as front month, following the expiry of the September contract on Wednesday. Prices have continued their move lower, with faltering demand and ample supply weighing. Softer China PMI data, a stronger dollar and upped OPEC and U.S. output should keep the pressure on for now.
08:15 EDTU.S. weekly jobless claims preview:
U.S. weekly jobless claims preview: jobless claims for the week ended August 16 are expected to see a 7k decrease to 304k (median 298k) as claims remain lean after the gyrations seen over the past three weeks. The 21k U.S. initial claims bounce to 311k in the second week of August more than reversed the big 13k drop to 290k (was 289k) at the start of August to leave the measure well above the 279k mid-July cycle-low. Though claims are reversing some of last month's retooling-hit, levels remain tight relative to the pre-July trajectory.
