09:38 EDTEarnings help lift market at open
Stock futures improved during the pre-market trading session, thanks in part to better than expected earnings reports from Boeing (BA). The futures action led to a positive open for the broader market, with Boeing's post-earnings gain fueling the Dow and Apple (AAPL) powering the Nasdaq higher. The timing of the earnings beats for those two big names could not have been better given yesterday’s sell-off following the earnings disappointments from a number of other corporate giants. Investors will now be turning their attention to the Fed’s rate announcement, due out this afternoon at 2:00 pm ET. In early trading, the Dow is up 45 points, the Nasdaq is up 43 points and the S&P is up 9 points.

07:35 EDTTreasury Market Outlook: Treasuries are modestly higher
Treasury Market Outlook: Treasuries are modestly higher, having pared overnight losses. The 10-year yield traded narrowly around 1.80%. European bonds are trying to rebound too, but are still slightly underwater, while Asian bonds closed in the red. Note that Greek yields have soared amid worries over the new government. Eurogroup head Dijsselbloem, who is set to meet Tsirpas Thursday, said that ongoing support from Europe requires efforts from Greece and "the message 'analysts want your support but not your conditions' won't fly." European bourses are mostly lower with U.S. shares mixed, despite blowout earnings news from Apple. Market focus is now turning to the FOMC announcement at 14:00 ET (there is no press conference). The Fed is widely expected to maintain its "patient" approach to rate normalization. Also, the bond market will have to bid on $26 B in 2-year notes and $15 B in 2-year FRNs before the policy announcement (the auctions were moved from Tuesday due to storm "Juno"). The MBA reported mortgage applications fell 3.2% for the January 23 week. The only other data today includes weekly oil inventories. Earnings reports today include Facebook, Boeing, General Dynamics, and Wynn Resorts.

06:40 EDTFX Update: The dollar traded steady-to-softer
FX Update: The dollar traded steady-to-softer into the Fed announcement. EUR-USD oscillated between 1.1332 and 1.1382. The market ignored an above-forecast German consumer confidence reading today, and the rebound tone of yesterday is absent today, though there seems to be a feeling that the euro has managed to build a toehold after making an 11-year low at 1.1098 on Monday. USD-JPY dipped below 117.70 in Europe after oscillating in a narrow range around 118.00 during Tokyo trade. Selling in EUR-JPY drove the move (EUR-USD was concomitantly lower), with the cross down 95 pips after logging a new rebound high of 134.35. AUD-USD made a five-day peak of 0.8025 after Australian Q4 CPI data. Elsewhere, the SGD dove sharply after Singapore's MAS unexpectedly cut the slope of monetary policy band.

06:17 EDTS&P lowers Atlantic City, NJ GO debt rating to BB from BBB+
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services yesterday lowered its general obligation rating on Atlantic City, NJ, four notches to 'BB' from 'BBB+' and placed it on CreditWatch with negative implications. The downgrade reflects S&P's view of the state's recent appointment, by executive order, of an Emergency Manager and Emergency Manager Advisor within the state's Department of Community Affairs, Division of Local Governments. The order requires the Emergency Manager to prepare and recommend a plan, within 60 days, to place Atlantic City's finances in stable condition and provides the explicit authority to use any and all lawful means, including restructuring the city's operations and adjusting its debts to achieve that aim. "The implementation of an Emergency Manager signals to Standard & Poor's that the state does not view the city as capable of resolving its challenges without outside intervention; in our view, third-party intervention is often more draconian than the actions taken to date and has a greater likelihood of being detrimental to bondholders," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Lindsay Wilhelm. The CreditWatch placement reflects S&P's expectation that the Emergency Manager's plan, which is due within the next 60 days, should provide additional clarity on the path that the city and state might pursue to stabilize the city's finances and it will monitor the impact that the plan may have on the city's bonded debt.
