07:35 EDTU.S. MBA mortgage market index rose 0.8%
U.S. MBA mortgage market index rose 0.8% in data released earlier, on top of a 0.1% increase in the purchase index and a 1.6% gain in the refinancing index for the week ending July 24. Troubles brewing in China took over the markets last week and helped knock yields and mortgage rates sharply lower, with the 30-year fixed rate sinking 6 basis points to 4.17% from recent highs. That helped pad the refinancing category a bit, though it didn't inspire much purchase activity. With China stabilizing a bit this week, there is unlikely to be much of a durable effect on the mortgage market for now, with focus shifting to any subtleties in the FOMC statement later today.

03:55 EDTFX Action: USD-JPY has edged higher
FX Action: USD-JPY has edged higher as the dollar firms into the FOMC announcement, and with steadier stock markets today reducing the yen's natural safe-haven appeal. The pair nudged above 123.70, which is new intraday highs, bringing yesterday's 123.79 high into play. Data today saw Japan retail trade for June decline 0.8 % m/m, slightly better than the -0.9% consensus forecast, though to little market impact with market participants focusing on the FOMC in the U.S, which is likely to be dollar supportive. While the Fed is not likely to commit to signalling a rate hike as soon as September, a likely upbeat tone on the economy will maintain this as a possibility and provide a contrast to the BoJ policy path. USD-JPY support is at 123.07-10.

14:50 EDTTreasury Action: there are several more auctions this week
Treasury Action: there are several more auctions this week with the 5-year sale and 2-year FRN Wednesday, both prior to the FOMC announcement, and a 7-year sale Thursday. The results may not be as solid as today's 2-year auction given the proximity of the Fed. Yields have backed up today, with the wi 5-year note up 2.5 bps to 1.600% and the wi 7-year up 3.1 bps to 1.990%. However, the concessions may not be sufficient to bring in buyers as those rates are much lower than June's stops at 1.710% and 2.153%, respectively. The 7-year might benefit from the fact the Fed will be out of the way, and may see some month-end flows.
