06:50 EDTFX Update: The dollar is generally firmer
FX Update: The dollar is generally firmer today. EUR-USD is lower by over 50 pips from yesterday's New York closing levels, having seen a low of 1.2866. A similar price action has been seen in other pairings, including Cable which dropped back quite sharply, back under 1.6400, after logging a two-week high at 1.6525 as the market reacted to the decisive "No" to independence outcome of Scotland's referendum. USD-JPY hit a six-year high of 109.46 after Japan's Cabinet Office downgraded its economic assessment, though the yen rebounded during the London AM session, sending the pair back under 109.00. The Fed's statement this week has given an underpinning to the dollar, with the combination of the dovish tone yet hawkish undertones in the SEP having seen the Dow and S&P 500 hit record highs and Treasury yields retain a perky tone.

14:45 EDTTreasury Action: the markets remain focused on the Scottish vote
Treasury Action: the markets remain focused on the Scottish vote, which should dominate trading tomorrow as the high degree of uncertainty should make for a volatile reaction to the outcome. The other news Friday will be the Alibaba IPO. There's little on the data calendar to spark interest with just August leading indicators on tap. Meanwhile, traders will be looking ahead to next week's supply with $93 B in short and intermediate dated coupons on tap, which could be a hard sell after the hawkish Fed Dot Plot. Quarter-end is fast approaching too, and flows could become significant. Many corporations are also closing in on fiscal year-end. Fedspeak resurfaces next week with at least 7 regional presidents already on the circuit. There's not a lot of important data between now and the end of the month, however, but the September nonfarm payroll report is due on October 3.
13:35 EDTU.S. VIX equity volatility is 5% lower near 12.0
U.S. VIX equity volatility is 5% lower near 12.0 and is probing post-FOMC lows yesterday of 11.73, which would set sights back down at August lows of 11.24. It would seem that the Fed's smoke screen of retaining a dovish statement and more hawkish rate projections has sufficiently baffled the equity market to not upset the market rally, as stocks continue to edge higher to wind down the week. The approach of the Scottish vote results by tomorrow morning, Alibaba IPO and witching expiries could inspire a bounce in volatilty, but if all those ducks line up for the bulls it could also result in another stab in volatility into the 12-11 zone.

12:40 EDTU.S. Household net worth rose
U.S. Household net worth rose at a 7.1% rate in Q2 to a record-high $81.5 tln, following a 7.1% (was 7.6%) rate in Q1, according to the Fed's Z.1. Analysts expect a 7% growth rate in net worth in Q3, given equity and home price gains that should leave a 7% Q3 asset rise and a 3% liability climb, following respective Q2 gains of 6.8% and 4.8%. Net worth in Q2 sat 48% above the $55.0 (was $52.0) tln cyclical-trough in Q1 of 2009, and analysts've more than reversed the 19% six-quarter drop from the $67.9 (was $68.1) tln prior cyclical-peak in Q3 of 2007. Asset value growth in Q2 included a 4.1% growth pace for real estate, alongside 8.0% growth for financial asset values. Total liabilities continue to oscillate just 2.8% above the $13.6 (was $13.4) tln cycle-low in Q3 of 2011 that marked a hefty 6.9% decline from the $14.6 (was $13.8) tln cycle-high in Q3 of 2008. Before this cycle, outright drops in liabilities were rare, as analysts last saw a quarterly liability decline in Q1 of 1983 with a 1.9% (was 1.3%) drop. Before that analysts saw a drop in Q1 of 1975 of 0.5% (was 0.4%).
12:00 EDTEuro$ interest rate options: another whopper
Euro$ interest rate options: another whopper entailed the bearish purchase of 40k in Front June 90 puts (covered at 99.415). Earlier there was a purchase of 15k in Red December strangles (vol) as well. Active euro$s remain under pressure on the confusing signals from the Fed.

11:35 EDTFX Action: USD-JPY has calmed down some
FX Action: USD-JPY has calmed down some, following its nearly 200-point romp higher since yesterday afternoon. The pairing has eased back into 108.65, after again failing to trade the 109 handle earlier. While USD-JPY is primed for further gains given the divergent Fed and BoJ policies, analysts may be in for a short period of consolidation into the weekend, where some profit taking could be set to emerge.

11:10 EDTMore euro$ interest rate options: a large 2x3 structure
More euro$ interest rate options: a large 2x3 structure was reported earlier that entailed a bearish purchase of 20k in Short October 88/90 put 2x3s (40k x 60k). There was also a bullish sale of 10k in Short December 87 puts vs 90/92 call spreads and a bearish purchase of 10k in both 87 puts and 88 puts on Short October. Other trades included the bearish purchase of a 5k in Front June 92/95 put 2x3s (10k x 15k), a purchase of 5k in Short October 88/90 put 2x3s, and a bullish 5k sale of 82/83/85/86 put condors. Euro$s remain under pressure in the wake of the Fed dots and normalization plans, with the deferreds up to 7-ticks lower out the back.
