14:22 EDTAverages drift in negative territory
Each of the major equity indices remains in negative territory, with the Nasdaq the laggard. The averages have moved in a narrow range for the last couple of trading sessions despite a host of economic data points that were released during that time. Advancing stocks are narrowly ahead of decliners, crude oil prices are up almost 2% and gold prices are slightly higher. The Dow is down 39 points, the Nasdaq is down 18 points, S&P is down 2 points.
13:50 EDTFed VC Fischer: Fed and the markets are expecting a rate hike this year
Fed VC Fischer: Fed and the markets are expecting a rate hike this year, in his comments at the monetary policy forum in NY. That's not really a surprising comment given other Fedspeak, the dot-plot, etc, and he didn't really indicate a particular time frame. He added that there is still an extraordinary amount of stimulus that the Fed is providing. The big balance sheet is keeping downward pressure on rates, and could pose financial stability risks, but he repeated that there are no plans to start selling MBS. He didn't let any cats out of the bag. The markets will turn their attention to next Friday's jobs report, and what that might support expectations that the FOMC will eliminate "patient" in the March 17, 18 policy statement.
12:55 EDTFedspeak from Fed Chairwoman Yellen next week:
Fedspeak from Fed Chairwoman Yellen next week: she will receive a medal from the Citizens Budget Commission on Tuesday for High Civic Service and will deliver a speech at the dinner honoring her well after the close from 20 ET. Otherwise a gaggle of speakers stack up on Wednesday, starting with Chicago dove Evans on current economic conditions and monetary policy from 9 ET. He will be followed by KC Fed hawk George on the U.S. economy from 13 ET and Dallas Fed uber-hawk Fisher reprising his farewell speech "10-years at the Fed" from 19 ET. On Friday SF Fed Williams graciously accepted an invite from the CFA Society of Hawaii to speak late from 23:15 ET.

10:25 EDTThe Michigan sentiment drop to a upwardly-revised 95.4
The Michigan sentiment drop to a upwardly-revised 95.4 (was 93.6) in February capped the prior six-month climb to a 98.1 cycle-high that marked the strongest reading since January of 2004, after a lower 93.6 reading in December. The upward revision, despite a gasoline price bounce that analysts thought might depress the final Michigan figures, reversed the pattern of downward bumps in the prior three months, and hence reestablished the upward revision tendency of the prior two years. Analysts have an average boost of 0.9 in 2015, versus average boosts of 0.6 in 2014 and 1.8 in 2013. Analysts saw February declines in nearly all of the major confidence gauges. The consumer confidence index fell to 96.4 in February from a 103.8 cycle-high in January, but a lower 93.1 in December. The weekly Bloomberg Consumer Comfort index slipped to 42.7 in the fourth week of February from a 45.5 cycle-high average in January. The daily Rasmussen index has slipped to a 109 average in February from a 113.7 cycle-high average in January. The IBD/TIPP index fell to 47.5 from 51.5, versus a 54.0 cycle-high in October of 2012, though the RBC-IPSOS index rose to a cycle-high 54.7 in February from a 53.3 prior cycle-high in both December and January.

U.S. consumer sentiment slipped to 95.4 in the final February print versus 98.1 in January, but is a little better compared to the 93.6 preliminary February print. The current conditions index dropped to 106.9 from last month's 109.3 (and the 103.1 February preliminary). The expectations component fell to 88.0 from January's 91.0 (87.5 preliminary). The 12-month inflation index climbed to 2.8% from 2.5% in January (but was in line with the 2.8% preliminary). The 5- to 10-year index dipped to 2.7% from January's 2.8% (but was also the same as the 2.7% preliminary).
