11:50 EDTFX Action: USD-JPY took one brief look at the 105.00
FX Action: USD-JPY took one brief look at the 105.00 level after falling from 105.70 overnight, to lows of 104.68 by mid-morning. With a new trend peak successfully printed, profit taking was the main driver in Tokyo, while disappointing U.S. jobs data knocked another layer of longs out of their positions. From here, analysts may well have seen the pairing's best levels for a while, with consolidation expected until the market gets a better feel for what the BoJ's next move will be on the policy front.

09:30 EDTFed Policy Outlook: one month's data won't alter the FOMC's trajectory
Fed Policy Outlook: one month's data won't alter the FOMC's trajectory. The overall report still reflects an improving job market, albeit at a very laborious pace and despite massive amounts of stimulus. Nevertheless, the headline employment figures were disappointing, and the unemployment rate dipped for the "wrong" reason, which will give Chair Yellen and the doves the upper hand for now and will keep most policymakers treading lightly with respect to policy normalization. The FOMC will continue to trim QE by $10 B at the upcoming September 16, 17 meeting and bring the buybacks to an end in October. Of significance, however, will be the nuances in the language of the policy statement which could portend the likely timing of rate lift-off. The FOMC can credibly state that there is "sufficient underlying strength in the broader economy to support ongoing improvement in labor market conditions." While the Fed could alter its "considerable period" phrase, it still might retain that key language at this point if it thinks the first rate hike is closer to mid 2015 than earlier. Analysts still expect policymakers to provide more clues on the normalization tools since Yellen will have the opportunity to more fully elaborate on them at the press conference.

09:10 EDTTreasury Option Action: some selling of volatility
Treasury Option Action: some selling of volatility was reported into the open with a sale of 2k in October 125 straddles, though there certainly has been some chop in the wake of subpar payrolls in August. December 10-year futures are 14-ticks higher near 125-135 on the payrolls whiff, compared to a 125-215 to 124-26 range on Globex.
08:55 EDTU.S. equities snapped back from lows
U.S. equities snapped back from lows after shortfall on August nonfarm payrolls bought some breathing room on the Fed outlook (bad is good) and offset overnight markets turning cautious before the jobs data and Ukraine talks in Minsk. The Euro Stoxx 50 settled 0.4% lower after the ECB's measures yesterday stopped shy of full blown QE and got a more sober reading by the markets with Eurozone GDP confirmed at 0%. Yet, U.S. indices cut their losses after the payrolls result. The Dow is in shallow negative territory, S&P is up marginally and NASDAQ 7-points firmer in pre-open trade. In corporate news, Gap sank 6% after same-store sales faltered in August, while Prana Biotechnology vaulted 21% after an upgrade on one of its drugs. Michael Kors sank 4.5% after equity dilution.
08:50 EDTFX Action: USD-CAD was dragged lower
FX Action: USD-CAD was dragged lower in the immediate aftermath of the twin U.S. and Canadian jobs report, falling from 1.0895 from 1.0840, as the greenback was hit broadly from the U.S. NFP miss. The weak Canadian employment report however quickly trumped, and USD-CAD has shot back up to 1.0900. The pairing has run into offers from 1.0900, stopping the run higher for now at least.
08:45 EDTFX Action: The dollar slipped broadly
FX Action: The dollar slipped broadly after the big NFP miss, taking EUR-USD to 1.2989 from near 1.2950. USD-JPY fell under 104.75 from 104.15. Yields moved lower, as equity futures pared losses, perhaps on hopes the Fed punch bowl will remain.
