U.S. TIC data showed foreign accounts bought a net $4.1 B in total assets in February after purchasing $51.0 B in January (revised down from $88.3 B).

15:05 EDTTreasury Closing Summary:
Treasury Closing Summary: In a rather disjointed session, ECB's Draghi pressing for full implementation of QE had the greatest market resonance, lifting both bonds and stocks. Bunds posted a fresh low yield as well. This came after a brief interlude with a confetti-tossing protestor who leapt on to the stage and following rounds of mostly damp data that seemed to defer a Fed hike further into 2015. The dollar turned lower and WTI crude oil prices surged past $56 bbl. The Empire State index sank, as did industrial production, though the NAHB index rose. Fed's Bullard warned of holding to ZIRP for too long, while the Beige Book noted the impact of the dollar, oil and winter on the economy.

14:15 EDTTreasury Action: yields are above lows
Treasury Action: yields are above lows in the wake of the Beige Book report, which saw some impact from the dollar, oil and winter, that have provided some headwinds for the economy. The rebound in yields came mainly prior to the report after the European close, providing for some mean reversion after the Bund-led rally earlier. The T-note yield based ahead of 1.87% and rebounded over 1.89%, compared to highs of 1.917%. The 2s-10s spread settled at +139 bp as the 2-year yield remains stuck at 0.500%.

13:00 EDTFed's Beige Book preview:
Fed's Beige Book preview: the report should reiterate the weary "moderate growth" mantra on the economy. However, that will belie the mixed results across Districts and sectors as the northeast and south try to recover from some of the weather hits, while lingering impacts from the ports' strike in the west, and difficulties in the oil sector impact more broadly. The job sector should remain a bright spot, the March employment report notwithstanding. Consumer spending should have generally increased. Also, manufacturing likely expanded at varying rates, as noted in the March Beige Book, while services should have extended gains too. Wage pressures likely remained moderate, except for skilled workers in difficult-to-fill positions. Prices probably were mostly steady to slightly higher. The prior report indicated shipping costs had increased due to delays from the ports' strike. There shouldn't be anything in the report that will give the Fed confidence to start rate liftoff anytime soon.
12:40 EDTTreasury Action: yields have settled near lows
Treasury Action: yields have settled near lows even as stocks extended gains, with the belly of the curve outperforming, where yields on 5s and 7s are nearly 3 basis points lower compared to a 1.2 bp decline on the 2-year to the 0.50% area and an 1.5 bp dip in the bond yield to 2.53%. 5s are probing below 1.31%, but are still some way above the 1.239% low struck on payrolls Friday. The 10-year yield has eased below 1.88% and the 2s-10s spread has narrowed back to +137 bp from the +140 bp area, but 5s-30s has steepened to +121 bp as a result. The ECB aiming for full QE implementation has evidently provided the bullish signal to both asset classes (cue confetti), despite mostly weaker headline data.
