02:50 EDTFX Update: The dollar has continued to trade firm
FX Update: The dollar has continued to trade firm against most other currencies and commodities. USD-JPY has logged a fresh three-week high at 124.23, EUR-USD has failed to hold rebound gains above 1.0900 after clocking a 15-week low yesterday at 1.0855, and USD-CAD has made a new six-year peak of 1.2973. An exception has been Cable, with sterling holding up well as markets discount BoE tightening alongside a Fed tightening. GBP-USD has held steady in the 1.56s while EUR-GBP has slipped to a fresh eight-year low at 0.6951. The Aussie has held up comparatively firm too, with AUD-USD holding steady around 0.7400 after recovering from yesterday's major-trend low at 0.7350, despite RBA's Edwards saying that, "I certainly think analysts have room to move lower" regarding the currency. Elsewhere, it has been another positive day for Chinese stock markets, and most other Asian markets too.

14:45 EDTYellen is appearing before the Senate Banking Committee this afternoon
Yellen is appearing before the Senate Banking Committee this afternoon. Analysts don't expect any policy surprises out of her Q&A today. She repeated yesterday before the House Committee that a rate increase this year seems appropriate, but will be dependent on whether the data support the FOMS's outlook, and to some extent, financial conditions. Her assessment of the economy was relatively upbeat, and she is optimistic that inflation will be moving up to the 2% target.

14:05 EDTTreasury Action: curve flattening remains the theme
Treasury Action: curve flattening remains the theme ahead of Yellen's Senate testimony with the front end underperforming. The 2-year yield is up over 3 bps to 0.657%, while the 10-year rate is flat at 2.35% after recovering from early losses. That's narrowed the 2s-10s spread to 169 bps today from 172 bps yesterday and 177 bps on Monday. The September 16, 17 FOMC is still seen as a likely date for rate liftoff (or December 15, 16) after the Fed Chair didn't really offer much opposition to that time frame in recent comments. And while recent data have been mixed, the weaker numbers have merely supported forecasts for a gradual tightening path once normalization gets underway, rather than negate expectations for a 2015 hike. Analysts suspect the curve can revisit the recent narrows of 150 bps from late May.

14:00 EDTU.S. CPI Preview
U.S. CPI Preview: June CPI is out Friday and should reveal a 0.2% (median 0.3%) increase for the headline with a matching 0.2% (median 0.2%) increase for the core. The already released PPI data revealed a headline increase of 0.4% with the core up 0.3%. Plunging oil prices over the winter and spring worked to depress inflation measures but analysts have begun to see some rebound as this effect dissipates.

12:35 EDTToday's U.S. reports
Today's U.S. reports revealed disappointing July Philly Fed data, though initial claims fell 15k to reverse last week's pop, and the NAHB firmed to 60 in both June (was 59) and July. For Philly Fed, analysts saw a 6.5-point headline drop to 5.7 with broad-based component weakness that left the ISM-adjusted index falling to 50.3. The July readings sit close to the 5.0 March one-year low for the headline and 47.6 March two-year low for the ISM-adjusted measure, as the upturn in producer sentiment is proving anemic at best as analysts enter Q3. For claims, the 281k weekly reading translates to a 286k average thus far in July versus lower recent averages of 277k in June, 274k in May, and 281k in April, though analysts attribute the early July gyrations entirely to a holiday distortion and the impact of auto retooling.
