September 18, 2014
12:40 EDTU.S. Household net worth rose
U.S. Household net worth rose at a 7.1% rate in Q2 to a record-high $81.5 tln, following a 7.1% (was 7.6%) rate in Q1, according to the Fed's Z.1. Analysts expect a 7% growth rate in net worth in Q3, given equity and home price gains that should leave a 7% Q3 asset rise and a 3% liability climb, following respective Q2 gains of 6.8% and 4.8%. Net worth in Q2 sat 48% above the $55.0 (was $52.0) tln cyclical-trough in Q1 of 2009, and analysts've more than reversed the 19% six-quarter drop from the $67.9 (was $68.1) tln prior cyclical-peak in Q3 of 2007. Asset value growth in Q2 included a 4.1% growth pace for real estate, alongside 8.0% growth for financial asset values. Total liabilities continue to oscillate just 2.8% above the $13.6 (was $13.4) tln cycle-low in Q3 of 2011 that marked a hefty 6.9% decline from the $14.6 (was $13.8) tln cycle-high in Q3 of 2008. Before this cycle, outright drops in liabilities were rare, as analysts last saw a quarterly liability decline in Q1 of 1983 with a 1.9% (was 1.3%) drop. Before that analysts saw a drop in Q1 of 1975 of 0.5% (was 0.4%).

11:35 EDTFX Action: USD-JPY has calmed down some
FX Action: USD-JPY has calmed down some, following its nearly 200-point romp higher since yesterday afternoon. The pairing has eased back into 108.65, after again failing to trade the 109 handle earlier. While USD-JPY is primed for further gains given the divergent Fed and BoJ policies, analysts may be in for a short period of consolidation into the weekend, where some profit taking could be set to emerge.

More euro$ interest rate options: a large 2x3 structure was reported earlier that entailed a bearish purchase of 20k in Short October 88/90 put 2x3s (40k x 60k). There was also a bullish sale of 10k in Short December 87 puts vs 90/92 call spreads and a bearish purchase of 10k in both 87 puts and 88 puts on Short October. Other trades included the bearish purchase of a 5k in Front June 92/95 put 2x3s (10k x 15k), a purchase of 5k in Short October 88/90 put 2x3s, and a bullish 5k sale of 82/83/85/86 put condors.

09:20 EDTAnalysts saw big August drops for U.S. housing starts and permits
Analysts saw big August drops for U.S. housing starts and permits after divergent revisions in the prior two months that lowered the up-trend for housing starts on net, and that left a disappointing report overall. Starts and permits are only slowly reversing the poor sector performance through the seasonally critical Q2 home buying season, with likely headwinds from ongoing mortgage market dysfunction, consumer caution, and a reduction in distressed sales. Starts under construction, which drive new home construction, extended their remarkably steady pace of recovery. Analysts saw a 0.6% August rise that followed gains of 2.6% (was 2.9%) in July, and 1.9% (was 1.2%) in June. There hasn't been a decline in this measure since May of 2011. Analysts expect 23% Q3 growth rate for starts under construction that matches the pace of Q2 (was 22%). Analysts expect GDP growth of 3.0% in Q3 after a boost in Q2 growth to 4.4% from 4.2%, with residential construction growth of 6% in Q3 after an estimated Q2 boost to 8.9% growth from 7.5%.
