07:55 EDTN.Y. FX Outlook
N.Y. FX Outlook: The dollar traded on a affirmer footing in London trade, though has given back gains into the N.Y. open. EUR-USD made new trend lows of 1.2664, though has since edged over 1.2700, as USD-JPY posted multi-year highs of 109.74, before falling back under 109.40. Both the yen and euro remain in sell-the-rally mode however, as both the BoJ and ECB remain on easing paths. The ECB meeting this week should not result in full-scale QE, though dovish noises from the Bank should keep the euro pressured. The U.S. calendar reveals August personal income and PCE at 8:30 EDT, followed by August pending home sales at 10:00 EDT, and the Dallas Fed index at 10:30 EDT.
07:40 EDTTreasury Market Outlook: Treasuries are a little higher
Treasury Market Outlook: Treasuries are a little higher, as are core European debt markets, as equities lose traction. The yield on the 10-year note has fallen to 2.50% and the German Bund is holding under 1.0%. Trading has been on the light side. Overseas data were mixed with a slightly higher than expected German HICP offsetting a dip in the ESI economic confidence measure. U.K. lending data was also a little above forecasts. It's a hectic schedule in the U.S. as Q3 comes to an end. There are many key reports this week to help guide the outlook on the economy, including Friday's employment numbers. Month- and quarter-end dynamics could distort flows, while all trading will also be sensitive to the ECB meeting (Thursday). Today's data on August personal income and consumption will be important for fine tuning Q2 and Q3 GDP forecasts. There are also pending home sales for August and the September Dallas Fed manufacturing index. There will be comments from the dovish Chicago Fed president Evans who speaks at an economics conference. The NY Fed will be a buyer of $2.0 B to $2.5 B notes ranging in maturity from November 15, 2021 through August 15, 2024.

07:10 EDTFX Update: The dollar extended to fresh highs
FX Update: The dollar extended to fresh highs against most of the main currencies as markets continued to digest the strong U.S. growth number of last week. EUR-USD logged a fresh 22-month low at 1.2669, which is just seven pips short of the November 2013 low. The euro lifted following perkier than expected German state CPI numbers and a rise in Spanish HICP, but the move stalled just shy of 1.2700. The market remains keen to sell the euro on rallies ahead of this week's ECB meeting in light of Draghi's "risk of doing too little outweigh risks for doing too much" speech last week. USD-JPY broke through 109.50 option barriers on route to a new six-year peak at 109.74. AUD-USD saw a new nine-month low of 0.8664. NZD-USD saw sharp losses after the publication of RBNZ forex transaction data, which showed that the central bank sold NZD 521 M last month in an intervention initiative to drive the currency lower. The NZD logged a 13-month low at 0.7708. New Zealand PM also said that the "Goldilocks" level for the NZ dollar is around 65 cents.

03:45 EDTFX Action: USD-JPY broke through 109.50 option barriers
FX Action: USD-JPY broke through 109.50 option barriers earlier on route to a new six-year peak at 109.74. The move reflected broad dollar gains as the market continued to digest the strong U.S. growth number of last week. PM Abe said that a decision must be made by year-end about whether the economy could cope with a second sales tax increase next year, while BOJ’s Kuroda said that the moderate recovery trend should persist. Analysts are expecting USD-JPY to breach 110.00, which is a reportedly major option barrier level.

15:05 EDTTreasury Closing Summary:
Treasury Closing Summary: A Friday asset allocation swing from bonds into stocks was the temporary fix ahead of quarter-end for jumpy portfolio managers after news broke that PIMCO Bond King Bill Gross jumped ship to Janus before being forced to walk the plank. This followed hot on the heels of stock portfolio liquidations that day prior by hedge fund BlueCrest that caught the complacent stock market napping. Upward revisions on Q2 GDP and unrevisions on Michigan Sentiment were lost in the shuffle, though risk of a "Black Swan" type event seemed overblown. That said, there was plenty of positioning on Treasury futures and options rumored somehow related to the fallout from the dramatic management reshuffle.
13:20 EDTTreasury Option Action: heavy put buying
Treasury Option Action: heavy put buying featured as part of the sum total of options activity today, in addition to earlier reported rumors of position unwinds relating to a management shift at a large bond fund. Sources confirmed the large "8x1 ratio put spread" executed in pit trade was a net vol purchase involving a 40k purchase of November 122.5 puts vs a sale of 5k in November 123 puts. In addition to that sizeable trade there were about 25k in purchases of various put strikes, combos and trades ranging from 119.5 to 124-00 puts. Underlying December 10-year futures are 10-ticks lower at 124-14, compared to a 124-295 to 124-115 session range - in line with the panicky sell-off.
