20:30 EDTJapan's GDP accelerated to a 2.4% growth pace in Q1
Japan's GDP accelerated to a 2.4% growth pace in Q1 (q/q, saar), much better than expected following a downwardly revised 1.1% pace in Q4 (was +1.5%). Consumption grew at a 1.5% pace in Q1 (q/q, saar) contrary to an expected slowing following the 1.5% rate in Q4. Private investment bounced 7.5% after the 2.4% dip in Q4, 23.2% drop in Q3 and 36.7% pull-back in Q2. Private non-residential investment rose 1.4% in Q1, the first increase since Q1 of 2014. Exports grew 9.9% in Q1 while imports expanded 12.0%, leaving a drag from net exports. Inventories added to growth in Q1. Overall, this is a much better than expected report. While the Japanese economy faces considerable challenges, the pick-up in business investment is a positive sign for the growth outlook that will not be lost on the Bank of Japan.

13:10 EDTFOMC minutes could be a source of further volatility for the markets
FOMC minutes could be a source of further volatility for the markets, even though no big surprises are anticipated. The bond market has generally been defying weaker fundamentals during the selloff over the last three weeks, until today's housing starts figures. And traders may cherry-pick hawkish comments in the minutes to the April 28, 29 meeting to support the potential for a September rate hike, if not June. There weren't any real surprises in the April policy statement, and the forward guidance was removed in favor of data dependency, as universally expected. Remember that the Fed slightly downgraded its economic outlook, though it attributed some of the Q1 slowing to "transitory" factors. So there are likely to be a number of differing views on these topics from which traders can choose. Indeed, there are a number of factors that policymakers can cite to support rate liftoff, especially in the job market, but there are also a number of elements, specifically wages and prices, not to mention sluggish Q1 growth, that give the FOMC pause.
12:15 EDTEnergy Action: NYMEX crude is down 3%
Energy Action: NYMEX crude is down 3% on the session, trading to lows of $58.34, and near support at $58.11, which has been the lowest since the start of May. Sources expect follow through to the $56.50 region should $58.00 give way.
11:45 EDTTreasury's $45 B 4-week bill auction results were soft
Treasury's $45 B 4-week bill auction results were soft, though in part it's a function of the $5 B increase in size. The bill tailed, however, to 0.015% versus 0.005% at the bid deadline, and is a little cheaper than last week's 0.010% too. Bids totaled $151.7 B for a 3.38 cover, down from the prior 3.95 and the 3.79 average. In fact, it's the smallest since December 16. Indirect bidders took 15.6%, about half of the 31.4% take last week, and is below the 27.7% average.

10:00 EDTFX Action: USD-JPY has run into sellers from the 120.45 level
FX Action: USD-JPY has run into sellers from the 120.45 level, with offers reportedly in place now from 12050 to 120.80. Pent up yen demand from Japanese exporters is the likely source of the USD-JPY selling interest, though with yields staying firmer, and overall dollar pullback limited, the market may well begin to test the depth of the sellers.
