13:15 EDTEuro$ interest options: hefty bearish put positioning
Euro$ interest options: hefty bearish put positioning took the form of a purchase of 30k in June 87/90 put spreads on the short-dated rate futures, which remain fairly buoyant despite the opening rebound in stocks. Risk aversion remains evident in gold and yen carry trade unwinds, which helped drive 2-year note yields down to over 2-week lows of 0.448% today as well.

11:15 EDTFX Action: USD-CAD has continued to ebb
FX Action: USD-CAD has continued to ebb, with stops helping fuel the move lower following the dip through 1.0950. Low so far is 1.0928. Support is marked by yesterday's low at 1.0904. The pair logged a two-month peak at 1.0986 earlier before a strong export figure in Canada's July trade report caught the interbank trader and speculative with a fairly extreme net long position, prompting CAD short covering. There has also been talk of good selling interest into 1.1000.

10:35 EDTEuro$ interest rate options: bearish call selling
Euro$ interest rate options: bearish call selling included the sale of 40k in 97 calls on March 2015s, though similar to a trade on Monday this is suspected to be a position roll down. There was also a bullish sale of 15k in put 1x2s on Short December contracts on top of 20k in that position sold earlier in the week. And 2k in June 88/91 put 1x2s were purchased. The September contract is flat at 99.765, but the deferreds are 1-3 ticks higher in response to the opening declines in stocks, which have since rebounded.

09:37 EDTFailed deals, European weakness push buyers to sidelines
Stock futures showed little improvement during the pre-market trading session. World events, both political and financial, have raised investor concerns in recent weeks, with the latest troubling headline coming from Italy, which appeared to have fallen into recession last quarter. Adding to the negative mood were two large deals that were passed on, as 21st Century Fox (FOXA) withdrew its proposal to acquire Time Warner (TWX) and Sprint (S) reportedly gave up on its pursuit of T-Mobile (TMUS). The futures action led to a lower open for the broader market and in early trading the Dow is down 38 points, the Nasdaq is down 19 points and the S&P is down 6 points.

08:45 EDTTreasury Action: yields remained steady near lows
Treasury Action: yields remained steady near lows following the surprise narrowing of the June trade gap, as geopolitical forces and merger unwinds kept stocks defensive. The T-note yield probed back under 2.44% overnight and continues to test the waters below, putting the 2.402% May low within reach. The 2s-10s spread is back inside +200 bp to the +198 bp area.
