08:45 EDTU.S. advance durable goods orders rebounded 4.0% in March
U.S. advance durable goods orders rebounded 4.0% in March, much stronger than expected, but that belies weakness in many key components. February's 1.4% decline was not revised, but January's 2.0% jump recorded previously was nudged to 1.9%. Transportation orders remain choppy, contributing to the sawtooth pattern in durables. They surged 13.5% following a 1.8% drop previously (revised from -3.5%), with January up 8.9% (revised from 8.8%). Excluding transportation, orders dipped 0.2%, extending the string of monthly declines to 6 straight. Nondefense capital goods orders excluding aircraft fell 0.5% and has posted declines since last September. Durable shipments were up 1.1% after sliding 0.2% lower in February. Nondefense capital goods shipments excluding aircraft slid 0.4% after a 0.1% rebound in February (revised from 0.2%). Inventories increased 0.1% with monthly gains extending back to May 2013. The inventory-shipment ratio was 1.67 from 1.69.

08:45 EDTFX Action: The dollar initially rallied
FX Action: The dollar initially rallied on the strong headline durables print, though quickly retreated again, as the ex-transport component disappointed. EUR-USD dipped to 1.0815 from near 1.0850, before popping back to near 1.0870, as USD-JPY rallied to 119.55 from 119.40, and has subsequently dropped back to 119.30. Equity futures remain in positive territory, as yields remain on a softer footing.
08:30 EDTU.S. tech stocks are on the rise again
U.S. tech stocks are on the rise again heading into the durables report after European stocks wrestled with their post Greek-Riga meeting disappointment following a firm reading on German Ifo. The Euro Stoxx 50 is only 0.25% higher and Athens is 2% higher. Solid earnings results for Google, Amazon and Microsoft also kept a bid in the tech sector after yesterday's record closing run, leaving intraday highs on the NASDAQ at 5,132.52 within striking distance. Apple also estimated that it expects to ship 20 M watches this year, above forecasts. The Dow is 11-points firmer, S&P gained 2-points and NASDAQ is 28-points higher. The rupture of the Comcast Time Warner Cable deal announced late yesterday continues to reverberate. But Google managed rising costs and the dollar well as advertising revenues jumped, driving its shares nearly 4% higher, while a Microsoft beat sent its shares 3.6% firmer. Post-earnings gains on Starbucks and Juniper Networks also featured. On the flipside were shortfalls by Biogen, Xerox, Altera and Pandora.

08:15 EDTEnergy Action: NYMEX crude stayed away from Thursday's $58.36 highs
Energy Action: NYMEX crude stayed away from Thursday's $58.36 highs, and ranged between $57.31 and $57.93 overnight. Continued Saudi Arabia airstrikes in Yemen were behind yesterday's rally, though reports that an Iranian ship convoy, on its way to Yemen has turned back, has cooled market fears to a degree. RBOB gasoline futures extended Thursday's strong gains, peaking over $2.01/gallon, and at levels last seen in November. As the North American heating season draws to an end, natural gas futures continue to meander near the bottom of recent ranges, currently trading at $2.55/M BTU.
08:00 EDTTreasury Market Outlook: bonds are little changed around the world
Treasury Market Outlook: bonds are little changed around the world, but small gains are evident in longer dated Treasuries, Bunds, and JGBs on safe haven flows amid Greek worries. The 10-year Treasury yield is hovering around 1.95% in lackluster trading after testsing 1.97%. German Bunds are marginally firmer and erased earlier losses with the yield at 0.14% versus a 0.179% high. And the JGB closed over 2 bps lower at 0.279%. Reportedly Greece was "hammered" at the Riga meeting with the Eurogroup postponing a decision until the May meeting. Meanwhile, equities are higher after Germany's Ifo index surprised to the high side and added to the bullish mood after the Nasdaq hit new record highs yesterday. Today's March durable goods data will be of interest, but its volatile nature may limit market response. The Markit PMI services data are also due, along with the April Dallas Fed manufacturing index. Earnings reports from American Airlines, AstraZeneca, McClatachy, Siemens, and Steven Madden will round out a very busy week.
