12:40 EDTFX Action: USD-CAD managed a 11016 to 1.1037
FX Action: USD-CAD managed a 11016 to 1.1037 trading range since the North American open, moving to session highs on the back of risk-off trade (Putin's rumored press conference), before easing back under 1.1030, as risk taking improved. The past five sessions have seen USD-CAD inside 1.0998 to 1.1053, with range trade mentality deeply ensconced for now.

10:06 EDTAverages give back gains after higher open
Nasdaq futures were sharply higher during the pre-market trading session, thanks in part to shares of Apple (AAPL) and Facebook (FB), which had been higher following their earnings reports last night. The Dow and S&P futures lagged, but the futures action still led to a higher open for all three, led by the tech-heavy Nasdaq. However, the Nasdaq, like shares of Facebook, has given up its early session gains and turned slightly negative about 30 minutes into trading. Amid a busy morning for earnings reports and associated conference calls, the Dow is down 28 points, the Nasdaq is down 10 points and the S&P is down 3 points.

09:20 EDTToday's U.S. durables report
Today's U.S. durables report revealed the expected March transportation boost, after a similar lift in February but sizable hits in December and January, with an additional big durable orders boost from defense that lifted ex-transportation. Analysts saw the expected equipment sector gains that reversed disappointing January and February data, with modest shipment and inventory gains that left a report that was only modest stronger than expected overall. Analysts still expect Q1 real GDP growth of 1.0% with a comparable 1% growth rate for real equipment spending and a big $24 B hit from inventories that leaves a still-lofty $88 B accumulation rate, following Q4 growth rates of 2.6% for GDP and 10.9% for equipment with a small $4 B inventory subtraction. For Q2, analysts still assume 3.2% GDP growth with an 8% growth rate for equipment and a $41 B inventory hit. Analysts expect a 0.5% March rise for both factory inventories and business inventories, given today's 0.5% factory durable inventory increase. Analysts now assume a 1.8% March factory orders bounce with a 1.0% factory shipments rise, given an assumed 1.0% nondurables increase.
08:50 EDTThe 24k U.S. initial claims pop to 329k
The 24k U.S. initial claims pop to 329k in the week of Good Friday extended the 4k up-tick to 305k (was 304k) in the BLS survey week from a 301k (was 302k) cycle-low, leaving a pop after depressed earlier figures that analysts would attribute to the late-Easter. On an NSA basis, claims fell 21k after three weeks of gains. Despite today's rise, analysts have a big claims drop from the weather-boosted 351k late-February reading. Claims have averaged 325k over the twelve weeks since the two-month stretch of winter holiday distortions ended, which is below the 332k average in September-October of last year before holiday distortions took effect. Claims have averaged just 313k thus far in April, versus higher prior averages of 320k in March, 337k in February, and 333k in January. The 305k BLS survey week reading undershot prior BLS readings of 323k in March, 334k in February, and 329k in January. Analysts still assume a 200k April payroll gain that enjoys a further post-winter updraft, though the gain only modestly exceeds recent increases of 192k in March and 197k in February.
