14:15 EDTFX Action: The dollar was smacked broadly lower
FX Action: The dollar was smacked broadly lower after the release of the FOMC minutes, where the Fed voiced concerns over the strength of the dollar, and its impact on the U.S. economy. The FOMC is concerned that a stronger dollar will bring down import prices, and keep inflation lower for a longer period. EUR-USD spiked up to 1.2727 highs from 1.2655, as USD-JPY dove to near 108.15 from 108.75.

14:09 EDTFed members agreed rate increase dependent on economic data
Minutes from the last Fed meeting read, "Participants agreed that the timing of the first increase in the federal funds rate and the appropriate path of the policy rate thereafter would depend on incoming economic data and their implications for the outlook. That said, several participants thought that the current forward guidance regarding the federal funds rate suggested a longer period before liftoff, and perhaps also a more gradual increase in the federal funds rate thereafter, than they believed was likely to be appropriate given economic and financial conditions...In addition, some participants saw the current forward guidance as appropriate in light of risk-management considerations, which suggested that it would be prudent to err on the side of patience while awaiting further evidence of sustained progress toward the Committee's goals."

12:40 EDTTreasury 10-year auction preview:
Treasury 10-year auction preview: the wi has cheapened slightly to 2.365% in recent trading. Nevertheless, a stop there would still be one of the lowest rates since June 2013 and that may inhibit some buyers, especially as the Fed is ending QE this month, and is expected to start hiking rates around mid-2015, though that is up for debate. The advent of a potentially hawkish set of FOMC Minutes may also detract from demand. Additionally, the 5s-10s-30s butterfly is also at the rich end of the spectrum. And the recent track record of auctions has not been great. Nevertheless, the wide spread to Bunds and JGBs is expected to result in another solid indirect bid that should be overall supportive for the offering. The potential for curve flatteners is also a positive for the auction, as are tame inflation expectations and rising growth worries. The September auction stopped at 2.535% and garnered a 2.71 cover (2.70 average), a 53.0% indirect bid (45.4% average), with a 13.5% direct bid.
