11:50 EDTU.S. VIX equity volatility is gapping lower
U.S. VIX equity volatility is gapping lower with U.S. stocks up nearly 2% while European indices have redoubled gains into their close with a 3.8% jump on the Euro Stoxx 50. The VIX opened at 27.11 and then sank 14.8% to 25.8 (25.21 low) after finishing at 30.3 yesterday. That's well off the 53.29 post-crisis high set on Monday and it opened below the 32.0 50% retracement of the August rally from 10.88. S&P 500 has in turn lifted back above 1,978 and is honing in on the 1,990 50% retrace of its August 2,114 high to 1,867 low swing (low close Tuesday). Dow kingpin Apple is up 2.2% and over $112 again, while top gainer is Exxon at +2.4% thanks to the 7.2% rebound in crude oil to $41.40 bbl and this has plumped up the RJ/CRB by 3% to clear 191.40.

11:05 EDTFX Action: USD-JPY remains comfortably in the middle
FX Action: USD-JPY remains comfortably in the middle of the 129 handle into the London close, as risk appetite remains at improved levels, and as yields are generally supportive of the dollar. The pairing had been on a wild ride over the past five trading sessions, posting a 123.50 to 116.15 trading range. Given the potential for further Japan stimulus as a result of the weak growth outlook in Japan, should China volatility settle down in the coming sessions, USD-JPY looks set to reclaim levels seen in early August, somewhere around the 125 level.

10:15 EDTTreasury Action: yields pulled back from highs
Treasury Action: yields pulled back from highs after the NAR PHSI gina in July came in about half of median forecasts, which allowed some short-covering to kick back in. The T-note yield had cleared out Wednesday 2.19% highs to extend to 2.207% session highs before returning to 2.17% after the data. Yet stocks are still in an assertive mood and China Treasury sales stories may keep yield dips shallow as well. The 2s-10s spread steadied inside +148 bp.

09:10 EDTThe hefty Q2 GDP growth boost to 3.7%
The hefty Q2 GDP growth boost to 3.7% from 2.3% beat estimates due to unexpected boosts for equipment spending and intellectual property, alongside an expected big construction-led hike in government spending alongside smaller boosts for nonresidential and residential construction. Analysts saw a small $3.6 B net export hike that was also expected, alongside a smaller than expected boost of $11.1 B for inventories, and a hike in Q2 consumption that fell a tad short of assumptions. Analysts'll leave our Q3 real GDP growth estimate at 3.0% until tomorrow's July income report. The Q2 GDP revisions leave a cycle-high $121.1 B inventory accumulation rate that exceeds the $116.2 B prior cycle-high in Q3 of 2010, and that sits just a tad short of the all-time high of $124.9 B in Q1 of 1998. The average real GDP growth clip for the expansion rose to 2.2% (was 2.1%) from 2.1% in Q1 but the same 2.2% in Q3 and Q4 of last year, while average nominal GDP growth for the expansion rose to 3.8% (was 3.7%) in Q2 from 3.7% in Q1 but the same 3.8% in Q4. Real and nominal GDP growth are oscillating around a "long-run" rate that is only just sustainable, despite an ongoing output-gap.
