14:15 EDTAction Economics Survey results:
Action Economics Survey results: Treasury market conditions have calmed a lot since the big price swings in recent sessions which were blamed on positioning and the meltdown in Bunds. So, is it safe to get back into the market. Significant downward adjustments in Q1 GDP growth to -0.6%, according to the Median estimate, and signs of only moderate acceleration in Q2, have helped take a June Fed rate hike off the table. Though the 0.313% Median estimate for the September FOMC points to rate liftoff at the end of Q3, more data like today's will see tightening forecasts pushed out further. There isn't a lot of data next week and none should really alter the outlook. Housing starts are expected to rise further, back to 1.020 M, while existing home sale extend gains to a 5.222 M pace. CPI at the end of the week should post gains of 0.1% and 0.2% for the headline and core, respectively.

09:55 EDTThe 0.3% U.S. April industrial production drop
The 0.3% U.S. April industrial production drop undershot assumptions, though it followed upward revisions that left the April index level only modestly below our estimate. The utility sector continued is unwind from the February all-time high alongside an ongoing mining sector contraction. Analysts did see a welcome 2.6% bounce in the vehicle assembly rate to a 12.0 M rate, and the manufacturing activity was flat. On a quarterly basis analysts expect a Q2 industrial production contraction rate that matches the 0.7% (was 1.0%) drop in Q1, which itself marked the worst quarter of the expansion. Before the early-2015 petro-led factory sector contraction, analysts saw quarterly growth rates throughout this expansion of 1%-9% that left a net factory sector outperformance of GDP. Industrial production is slowing to the 2% area in 2015 from 4.2% in 2014, 2.9% in 2013, and 3.8% in 2012. GDP is tracking 2.4% growth in 2015 that largely matches recent rates of 2.4% in 2014, 2.2% in 2013 and 2.3% in 2012.

09:40 EDTTreasury Action: there wasn't much reaction
Treasury Action: there wasn't much reaction to the disappointing production data, though intermediate to longer dated yields remain lower on the day. The 10-year has hardly budged from the 2.19% area. German Bunds are outperforming slightly as they recover from the week's heavy losses with the yield down 4 bps to 0.66%. There's much more calm in the markets today and a new range trade is likely to develop near current levels. Equities have pared their gains, but worries over the growth slowdown are soothed by expectations the Fed will delay rate liftoff into at least September, if not 2016. There's also a little profit taking after record highs on the S&P yesterday.
