November 19, 2014
09:20 EDTThe small 2.8% October U.S. housing starts drop
The small 2.8% October U.S. housing starts drop from an upwardly-revised September level was roughly in line with assumptions, alongside a 4.8% permits pop that modestly beat estimates to leave an encouraging report overall. The positive tilt was fed by strength in the important single-family component, and a welcome bounce in the critical starts under construction series, as well as starts in the South, after a poor Q3 performance. Starts under construction, which drive new home construction, rose 1.4% in October after a 0.1% (was 0.4%) September rise and a 0.1% (was -0.3%) August figure. Analysts haven't seen a decline in this measure since May of 2011. Unfortunately, today's report will likely be followed by a big weather-hit in November, and possibly through the winter overall if the polar vortex proves as stubborn this winter as last. More generally, the single-digit pace of recovery in the 2014 housing market has proven disappointing on net, as the sector faces an ongoing headwind from mortgage market dysfunction and investor caution, and weather-depressed Q4 figures would add to the disappointment.
09:15 EDTFed under fire from both Left and Right:
Fed under fire from both Left and Right: according to WSJ Fedwatcher Hilsenrath, "What's striking this week is how much pressure the Fed is also facing from the left, particularly the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Sen. Jack Reed, a Democrat from Rhode Island, has introduced legislation that would require that the New York Fed president be nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate, subjecting the powerful position to a political process which it now escapes. Under current law, the president of the New York Fed is chosen by its own board of directors, with heavy consultation from Washington's congressionally confirmed Board of Governors. Meantime, Senate Democrats Elizabeth Warren, of Massachusetts, and Joe Manchin, of West Virginia, have penned a commentary for the WSJ's editorial pages calling on the President to nominate tough bank supervisors to fill two empty seats on the Board of Governors. Stars may be aligning for a new bipartisan challenge to Fed governance and its oversight of the nation's banking system."

08:45 EDTTreasury Action: yields eased from highs
Treasury Action: yields eased from highs briefly after the drop in housing starts that caught the markets slightly offguard, though permits were sharply higher and it seems unlikely that too much will be read into this data. The T-note yield continues to probe the 2.35% area, well up from 2.31% Asian lows, but below the 2.38-2.40% threshold that has put a lid on yields in November. The 2s-10s spread is out to +183 bp again.

07:50 EDTFX Update: The Aussie and yen underperformed
FX Update: The Aussie and yen underperformed, the former amid commodity price declines and the latter following the BoJ policy statement and dovish tone of Kuroda's post-meeting press conference. Both currencies lost ground to the euro and dollar, among others. Amid this backdrop, EUR-USD traded higher amid general euro strength, with EUR-JPY extending further into six-year high territory above 147.50, while EUR-USD breached yesterday's peak in making a high of 1.2547, though upside progress subsequently stalled. EUR-CHF remained heavy, holding the line little more than 10 pips above the SNB's 'no-go' marker at 1.2000. A Bloomberg survey found a consensus expectation for the SNB to maintain the franc's cap until 2017, which is when the ECB is expected to start exiting from ultra-accommodative policies.
