July 15, 2014
15:20 EDTCanada Manufacturing Preview
Canada Manufacturing Preview: Analysts expect manufacturing shipments, due Wednesday, to rise 1.0% in May (median +1.7%) after the 0.1% drop in April. Export values surged 3.5% in May due in large part to the resumption of normal production of passenger/light vehicles and energy after maintenance was conducted at some facilities in April. Analysts see a similar dynamic in manufacturing, with the size of the rebound in exports suggesting upside rise to our manufacturing shipments projection.
14:20 EDTYellen Fires Shot Across Bows of Tech:
Yellen Fires Shot Across Bows of Tech: The Fed Chair reiterated significant slack remains in the system and the recovery is incomplete, and she implied that the path to policy tightening could be either sped or slowed by the performance of the labor market ahead. While the timing of a rate hike relative to the end of QE next fall is of course yet to be decided, she was surprisingly specific about "substantially stretched" valuations in some parts of the tech sector, munies and leveraged loans.

11:15 EDTYellen on QE: she reiterated asset purchases are not on a pre-set course
Yellen on QE: she reiterated asset purchases are not on a pre-set course. The FOMC looks to two factors in determining the path of asset purchases, she said. One: is the labor market continuing to improve with the Fed maintaining confidence it will continue to do so, along with Two: whether inflation is stabilized and moving toward the 2% target. The Fed expects continued improvement, but it will reconsider its QE tapering if it looks like the recovery is stalling. The Fed never said a 6.5% unemployment rate was a target, adding the Fed looks at a broad range of labor market indicators.

10:50 EDTA direct question on first rate hike: she gave no definitive answer
A direct question on first rate hike: she gave no definitive answer, of course. She referred to the Fed "dots" and said they show nearly all FOMC participants expect the first rate hike to come sometime in 2015. Again she said there is "no formula or mechanical...it will depend on the progress of the economy and how analysts assess it based on a variety of indicators." On how the FOMC will exit from its accommodative stance, she did say the Committee hasn't yet decided on a strategy. But as was noted in the June FOMC Minutes, IOER is likely to be the central tool used, rather than draining reserves via overnight rps.

10:35 EDTFed Policy Outlook: there wasn't anything new to take away
Fed Policy Outlook: there wasn't anything new to take away from Yellen's testimony, as it mostly echoed prior FOMC statements/minutes, and her June press conference. The markets are consequently little changed. QE is likely to be completed with the October 28, 29 meeting. Rate lift-off will be forthcoming sometime after that, but when is still an unknown. The first rate hike could occur sooner than currently envisioned (analysts're forecasting Q2) if the Fed meets its goals sooner than policymakers foresee, or rates could remain more accommodative for longer if the economy disappoints.

10:25 EDTMore from Yellen on financial stability:
More from Yellen on financial stability: she again addressed the potential that the Fed's low rate stance may be incentivizing investors to "reach for yield," which could in turn "increase vulnerabilities to the financial system to adverse events." Interestingly, while she repeated that prices of real estate, equities and corporate bonds have "risen appreciably and valuation metrics have increased, they remain generally in line with historical norms," she added that "in some sectors, such as lower-rated corporate debt, valuations appear stretched." That seems to have knocked some of the stuffing out of stocks.
