U.S. consumer confidence dropped 6.2 points to 95.2 in April, after rising 2.6 points to 101.4 in March (revised from 101.3).

08:40 EDTFed seen delaying liftoff to September to push down unemployment
Fed seen delaying liftoff to September to push down unemployment according to a Bloomberg survey, "as officials try to spur inflation and hiring after the economy stumbled in the first quarter. Policy makers meeting on Tuesday and Wednesday in Washington will assess the impact of a harsh winter and a stronger dollar, which may have helped reduce the pace of economic growth to the lowest in a year, economists said. A hiring slowdown last month is adding to caution inside the Fed Open Market Committee." This view is not a stretch and in line with the direction the "temporary slowdown" that should be evident in the latest downward revision in Q1 GDP tomorrow morning.

08:20 EDTChina easing as Fed waits by the exit door:
China easing as Fed waits by the exit door: China is launching unconventional monetary easing programs just as the Fed readies for an exit from its own low interest rate policies, according to WSJ's Hilsenrath in his Grand Central blog. That backdrop shows how much the risks on the map have changed. The PBoC "will allow Chinese banks to swap local government bonds for loans as a way to bolster their liquidity and boost lending. The strategy -- dubbed Pledged Supplementary Lending -- is similar to the long-term refinancing operations, or LTROs, used by the European Central Bank. It points to a fault line created by the credit boom that helped drive Chinese growth in recent years -- local-government debt. Borrowing by towns across China jumped nearly 50% from June 2013 and accounts for a quarter of the buildup in China's overall domestic debt since 2008. Now China's commercial banks have become hesitant about buying new local bonds and the PBOC is stepping in to bridge a funding gap. This is evidence that China's economic slowdown is more serious than its official 7% growth objective implies. Moreover, the association with a credit buildup raises the risk of unforeseen financial shocks. World financial leaders believe Chinese officials have the know-how and resources to deal with such problems, but a credit bust can be a long and nasty thing. Is the rest of the world ready for the Fed to move on from its own credit bust?" he asks.

07:55 EDTN.Y. FX Outlook
N.Y. FX Outlook: The dollar continued on its path lower overnight, as expectations firm up for a dovish FOMC announcement on Wednesday. Given ongoing weaker incoming U.S. data, a June rate hike is now a close to zero proposition, with the timeline being shifted to Autumn, or even 2016. As a result, there has been no urgency to buy dollars so far this week. Analysts look for further USD erosion into tomorrow's announcement. On the calendar, February S&P/Case-Shiller home price index is due at 9:00 EDT, followed by April consumer confidence and the April Richmond Fed index, both at 10:00 EDT.
