02:45 EDTFX Update: Currencies have been relatively stable
FX Update: Currencies have been relatively stable, despite fresh decline in Asian stock markets, where Australia's ASX index today joined Japan's Nikkei in entering official bear market territory by exceeding declines of more than 20% from the cycle peak. Oil prices have managed a 2%-plus rebound, recouping some of yesterday's hefty losses, though there is little to suggest any change in underlying bearish fundamentals. USD-JPY has remained heavy, but has held above yesterday's 114.20 low, which is the lowest level seen since November 2014. Most yen crosses logged fresh lows, though have so far remained above cycle lows. The yen is the haven currency of choice during risk-off phases, though Japanese officials won't be liking USD-JPY at sub-115 levels, which is the level budgeted for by Toyota and other exports for the currency fiscal year. EUR-USD ran to a 16-week peak of 1.1338 after the London close yesterday, and has since settled around the 1.1300 mark. A big focus today will be on Fed chairwoman Yellen's testimony today, where she is likely to express a cautiously optimistic view of the U.S. economy while noting risks from China's ongoing transition to a slower-growth economy.

15:05 EDTTreasury Closing Summary:
Treasury Closing Summary: The bond market turned mixed on Tuesday, though selling resumed in equities around the globe amid concerns about liquidation and margin calls on bullish tech and financial positions. The plight of Deutsche Bank in particularly kept pressure on European financials after its co-CEO sent out a "rock solid" missive to staff. Then oil sector declines took the lead in the afternoon amid contradictory price forecasts from the IEA (bearish) and EIA (bullish). The 3-year auction was panned ahead of Yellen testimony tomorrow, given overly rich levels to boot. Somehow the Atlanta Fed conjured a Q1 GDP uptick out of the downdraft on December wholesale trade data.
14:30 EDTFed Chair Yellen's Monetary Policy Report will be key for market direction
Fed Chair Yellen's Monetary Policy Report will be key for market direction for the foreseeable future. Note that her prepared remarks will be released at 8:30 ET, after which she'll testify before the House Financial Services Committee (from 10:00 ET). She'll go in front of the Senate Banking Committee on Thursday. The focus will be on the tone of her remarks, whether it's dovish or not. It will also be crucial how she nuances and balances the solid U.S. jobs market against the signs of slowing growth in the manufacturing and service sectors, along with the plunge in global stock markets amid the further erosion in energy prices. An overly optimistic outlook could make her look too Pollyannaish, while a more pessimistic view could panic investors. While she won't front run the March 15, 16 FOMC decision and will reiterate the data dependency of the policy decision, an emphasis on the stresses in the financial markets and on the weakening conditions abroad could take a March hike off the table.

13:15 EDTTreasury's $24 B 3-year auction was disappointing on every metric
Treasury's $24 B 3-year auction was disappointing on every metric. It looks as though the richness of the issue and the advent of Yellen's testimony tomorrow left potential buyers sidelined. The note tailed to 0.844 % versus the 0.835% wi at the bid deadline (that's 33 bps below the 1.174% award rate from January). Bids totaled $65.8 B for a 2.74 cover, well below the 2.94 last month and the 3.20 average. It's the lowest since July 2009. Yikes. Indirect bidders accepted 41.5%, also less than the prior 62.8% and the 50.3% average. Direct bidders were awarded 15.0% compared to 9.4%, while primary dealers took 43.5% from 27.8%.
