07:58 EDTFutures pointing to lower start to week
U.S. stock futures are lower to start the week as the market tries to build on last week's small advance. The market had its first winning week of the year as a rebound in oil price helped fuel a rally to end the week. Investors will be watching oil prices, which are lower this morning, as well as the barrage of earnings this week, including Apple's (AAPL) report tomorrow after the close. Also, the FOMC will be holding a two day policy meeting tomorrow and Wednesday and will issue a policy statement at its conclusion. In pre-market trading, Dow futures are 50 points below fair value, Nasdaq futures are 12 points below fair value and S&P futures are 4 points below fair value.
07:55 EDTTreasury Market Outlook: longer dated Treasuries are a little firmer
Treasury Market Outlook: longer dated Treasuries are a little firmer, piggybacking on European bond gains after bourses unwound Asian gains and moved lower. U.S. equity futures are following suit. Crude oil has fallen back into the red, declining over 3% to hit $30.86 from $32.74 earlier. The 10-year Treasury yield is down 2 bps to 2.03%, while shorter dated notes are lagging ahead of this week's FOMC meeting and supply. Trading volume was on the thin side. There wasn't much news overnight. Japan's trade deficit narrowed as expected amid declines in exports and imports. Also, German Ifo was much weaker than expected, as was the UK's CBI industrial trends survey. It's a busy week in the U.S. with the FOMC meeting, supply, earnings and housing, durables data. However, today's slate is light with just the January Dallas Fed index. On the earnings front, Ashland, D.R. Horton, Graco, Halliburton, Kimberly-Clark, and McDonald's will all report quarterly results.

07:25 EDTFX Update:
FX Update: Risk-on in the Asian session soured to risk-off during the European AM session, which has had the usual consequences in forex markets of sending commodity currencies lower and the yen higher. The dollar traded lower against the yen and the euro, but gained versus the likes of the Canadian dollar, which tracked a sharp decline in oil prices. Oil prices once again at the epicentre of broader market sentiment. Brent crude fell some 3% after earlier showing gains of more than 1%. There didn't appear to be a catalyst, though the dip follows Friday's 7%-plus surge. Opec's general secretary said that oil producers must address the supply overhang, though his words had little lasting impact.

05:20 EDTFX Action: CAD-JPY has taken a hit on the oil price side
FX Action: CAD-JPY has taken a hit on the oil price side, which has undermined the Canadian dollar while boosting the yen's haven premium. The cross is presently showing a 0.9% decline, which is the biggest movement out of the dollar pairings and crosses that analysts monitor. Outside of these, the Russian rouble has also taken a hit, presently down 1% against the dollar and about 1.3% for the worse against the yen.

03:05 EDTFX Action: The main currencies have been consolidating
FX Action: The main currencies have been consolidating the risk-on moves of Friday, even though Asian stocks and oil prices continued to advance, albeit by comparatively moderate magnitudes. The forex market's risk appetite barometer, AUD-JPY, is showing a 0.2% gain but has remained below the 17-day high it posted on Friday, at 83.53. USD-JPY has also remained buoyant in the mid-to-upper 118s, but has left its Friday peak at 118.88 unchallenged. EUR-USD has remained heavy, near 1.0800, but has remained above last week's ECB-induced low at 1.0777. In data today, a 8% drop in Japanese exports in December data provided a reminder of fundamental headwinds, although last week's aggressive liquidity provisions from the PBoC, hopes for more action from the ECB and BoJ, and speculation the FOMC will delay any further tightening until Q2 (at the earliest), have and should continue to maintain investor spirits.
