07:45 EDTU.S. MBA mortgage market index rose 5.6%
U.S. MBA mortgage market index rose 5.6% in data released earlier, accompanied by a 0.7% drop in the purchase index and a 10.6% surge in the refinancing index for the week ended October 10. The overall market index gain was fueled mainly by the rekindling of refi activity after a 10 basis point drop in the 30-year fixed mortgage rate to lows of 4.20%, as slowing of European growth to a crawl and finally a modest correction on stocks sent the bond market back into ascendance again. As the MBA itself noted: "Growing concerns about weak economic growth in Europe caused a flight to quality into U.S. assets last week, leading to sharp drops in interest rates." At least this has helped provide the Fed some cover for domestic growth as it brings QE3 to a close this month before mulling just when to embark on the tightening cycle.

07:40 EDTN.Y. FX Outlook
N.Y. FX Outlook: The dollar was fairly steady versus the euro overnight, despite the steady stream of weak EU data. The market remains net short of euros overall, and further consolidation may be in the cards before further downside EUR-USD potential can be seen. Elsewhere, USD-JPY struggles over 107.00, as the soft risk backdrop supports the yen. USD-CAD meanwhile, is on new trend highs over 1.1375, after blowing out the 2014 high of 1.1278. The move comes ass oil prices continue to tank, with NYMEX oil trading on the $81/bbl handle. The U.S. calendar reveals September retail sales, September PPI, and the October Empire State index, all at 8:30 EDT, followed by August business inventories at 10:00 EDT.

07:26 EDTFutures lower in early trading

07:25 EDTTreasury Market Outlook: Treasuries are modestly higher
Treasury Market Outlook: Treasuries are modestly higher, in conjunction with gains in core sovereign bonds overseas, as stocks weaken amid a worrisome global outlook. Yields did edge higher in Asian trading as regional equities rallied, but losses in European bourses and U.S. equity futures have given Treasuries and European bonds a lift. German Bunds are leading the rally with the rate down to a new record low at 0.809%. The 10-yeaer Treasury yield has fallen to 2.18% from 2.22% in Tokyo action. Germany again sold its 2-year Schatz with a negative yield (-0.06%). There wasn't a lot of data overnight, but today's U.S. calendar is loaded and includes September retail sales, the October Empire State manufacturing index, and September PPI on tap, along with August business inventories. The MBA reported mortgage applications susrged 5.6% in the week ended October 10. The Fed's Beige Book for the October 28, 29 FOMC is also due today and should again say growth is moderate to modest.
