10:50 EDTTreasury Action: short covering into the weekend has boosted Treasuries
Treasury Action: short covering into the weekend has boosted Treasuries, especially with Grexit uncertainties overhanging the markets. Equities remain cautiously lower. The 10-year Treasury yield has fallen back to 2.04% and a close there would be the lowest since February 12, though still inside the recent range. Meanwhile, the advent of Yellen's testimony next week should keep trading on the quiet side as the markets try to weigh the contradictory nature of the January FOMC policy statement, the minutes, and Fedspeak, not to mention the data. Key for her testimony will be how she navigates and spins a strengthening labor market, an improved economy (though growth has slowed from the heady Q2 and Q3 pace), deflationary price pressures, and soft wage growth. She will have to dance around the "patient" issue and not give any clear hints on whether it will be retained or dropped from the March policy statement, as she won't want to pre-empt the policy decision.

10:05 EDTEuro$ interest rate options: a mixed bag of flows
Euro$ interest rate options: a mixed bag of flows has trickled out over the morning. Among them were bullish purchases of 2k in Short December 90/95 call 1x2s, 2k in Green March 83/85 call spreads and 2k in Front June 95/96/97 call butterflies. There was also a sale of 2k in September 96/97 call spreads vs a purchase of June 96/97 call spreads. Sources reported some selling of volatility earlier to the tune of 7k in June 96 straddles as well. June 2015s are a tick lower at 99.59, while the deferreds are as much as 6.5-ticks higher out the back amid pre-weekend jitters over Greece.

10:00 EDTU.S. Markit flash PMI rose to 54.3 in February
U.S. Markit flash PMI rose to 54.3 in February versus 53.9 for January and December. It's the highest reading since November and breaks a string of declines since September as manufacturing activity had been cooling since hitting a peak in June with the index at 57.3. The index has been above the neutral 50 threshold for nearly five-and-a-half years. Meanwhile, some of the internals offset the improved headline as both employment and new orders declined, with the latter at ist lowest since January 2014, and the former at its lowest since July. Export sales were close to stagnation, according to the report. Input prices dipped modestly to the lowest level since July 2012.

09:15 EDTU.S. CPI was revised slightly higher
U.S. CPI was revised slightly higher with its annual release of new seasonal factors. December CPI was nudged up to -0.3% versus the -0.4% reported previously. The core rate was also bumped up to 0.1% versus unchanged initially. There were no changes to November's prints of -0.3% and 0.1% for the headline and core rates, respectively, while the headline October rate was revised up to 0.1% from flat. The small revisions don't really alter the picture of soft price pressures.

FX Action: USD-CAD ran up to 1.2530 from 1.2470 following ugly Canadian retail sales data. The pairing has been on the decline through the London morning session, as oil prices stabilized some at higher levels, though the data has trumped for the near term at least. Yesterday's 1.2554 peak provides initial resistance from here.
