October 17, 2014
11:25 EDTToday's U.S. reports
Today's U.S. reports revealed headline gains for both September housing starts and October Michigan sentiment, though the 6.3% starts climb included surprising restraint in the single family and "under construction" figures that lowered prospects for the housing sector into year-end. The sentiment climb to 86.4 set a new cycle-high in October, but the Ebola-scare in the second half of the month should prompt an atypical downward revision in the final report. Today's stock market bounce marks the best news of the day going into the weekend, despite the morning's reported headline gains, and if markets continue to climb next week analysts may see less of a hit to the remaining October confidence reports.

11:00 EDTU.S. VIX equity volatility gapped lower to 20.5
U.S. VIX equity volatility gapped lower to 20.5 down some 18% compared yesterday's 25.20 close and Wednesday's peak of 31.06, as the melt-up in equities thanks to firm data, earnings and reversal in European equities all conspire to take some starch out of the VIX again as U.S. stocks rally some 1.25-1.55%. As noted yesterday, if stocks continue to weather the global margin call, the retreat of the VIX back down to the 20.0-15.0 zone "could be as sharp as its recent rise." However, it would take a resumption of equity liquidation/liquidity trap to put 37.5 late-November 2011 level back in play, with 46.8 above.
10:25 EDTEuro$ interest rate futures are mostly lower
Euro$ interest rate futures are mostly lower extending their declines as the world's asset markets rebalance after this week's big squeeze and liquidity trap. Even as Europe cheers the ECB's inexorable slide toward asset purchases and the Fed's inevitable backing away from premature rate hikes, that keeps the "Bernanke Put" alive a little longer and a temporary floor under stocks. Conversely, that's put a lid on gains on underlying euro$ rate futures, with the December 2014 contract flat at 99.755, the December 2015 4-ticks lower at 99.22 (0.78%) and the deferreds 1-7 ticks lower out the curve. Fedspeak has retained a dovish slant, however, likely keeping a nearby floor under the futures as well.

08:50 EDTFed Chair Yellen did not comment on Fed policy or the economy
Fed Chair Yellen did not comment on Fed policy or the economy in her prepared remarks. She stuck to the conference topic of inequality, and said it is of great concern to her. Inequality is estimated to be near the highest in a century. She thinks inheritance is a significant source of economic opportunity, while the higher costs of education are a limiting factor.
