02:25 EDTFX Update: The dollar and main currencies were relative steady
FX Update: The dollar and main currencies were relative steady today, settling after yesterday's EUR-JPY centred whipsaw. EUR-USD traded in the low-to-mid 1.12s, holding comfortably above the 1.1098 low that was seen during the early hours of Asian trade on Monday. The speculative market had gotten itself excessive short of euros during the lead up to and after the ECB QE announcement last week. Analysts still expect the euro will work its way toward parity against the dollar once the quant program kicks in March. SNB's Danthine is interviewed in the Tribune de Genev today, where he confirmed that the prospect of ECB bond buying was seen as a key risk factor when deciding to abandon the franc cap. He still sees the franc as overvalued, but didn't mention what would be an appropriate level, and said that the SNB was still prepared to intervene. USD-JPY dipped back under 118.00, a level which has developed as something of an anchor point in recent weeks. AUD-USD managed to breach above its Monday high in making 0.7948, which is 90 pips up on yesterday's four-year low, before settling around 0.7930.

14:40 EDTTreasury Action: shorter dated Treasuries continue to underperform
Treasury Action: shorter dated Treasuries continue to underperform in a curve flattening trade as both the upcoming FOMC decision and supply weigh. Additionally, the very tame inflation outlook and the ECB QE program should continue to underpin the long end. The wi 2-year has cheapened 3 bps today to 0.555%, with the wi 5-year note at 1.365%. Meanwhile, the 10-year yield is up on 2 bps to 1.82%, though it's traded under 1.80% at times today. The result on the 2s-10s spread has seen the gap narrow to 127 bps versus a 130 bps (using the benchmark 2-year) last week. Any indication from the FOMC that they are still on course for a mid-year rate hike will further compress this spread.

13:10 EDTTreasury's $30 B 4-week bill auction results were ok
Treasury's $30 B 4-week bill auction results were ok, especially considering the quick rescheduling of this sale from Tuesday due to the impending snowstorm on the East Coast. The offering stopped at 0.02%, right on the screws, though it's a little cheaper than the 0.01% handles seen over the last 4 auctions. Bids totaled $112.3 B for a 3.78 cover, up a bit from 3.74 last week, but in line with the 3.72 average. Indirect bidders took 19.0%, a bit better than the prior 17.1% but off the 22.3% average.

12:40 EDTEnergy Action: NYMEX crude is on session highs
Energy Action: NYMEX crude is on session highs, touching $46.35, after finding a floor at $44.30 in early Asia last night. The better than $2 bounce has been attributed to the failure to break below the January 13 low of $44.19, which brought short covering to bear. RBOB gasoline futures meanwhile, are off their highs, trading at $1.34/gallon, and down from highs over 1.3550.
12:00 EDTFX Action: USD-JPY has held the 118.00 level
FX Action: USD-JPY has held the 118.00 level through the session, after climbing from 117.26 Asian session lows. Buying overnight was partially attributed to a Bloomberg TV interview with BoJ governor Kuroda from Davos, Switzerland on Friday, where speculation emerged that the Bank could shift its stimulus focus away from JGB's and toward purchasing regional bonds, shares, or even derivatives. If the FX market gets a whiff of new stimulus measures, USD-JPY will trade higher.
11:50 EDTIBM denied it is planning massive layoffs
IBM denied it is planning massive layoffs in a move outlined in a Forbes article earlier, thought to be behind some of the opening weakness in stocks. IBM has been 1.5-2.0% higher on the day, so it appears investors weren't giving it too much credence after all. That said, IBM has been struggling with its earnings and reducing forecasts, in addition to slashing stock buy-backs, as cloud computing and data analytics revenues came up shy of expectations. IBM is trading near $158.26 compared to its $150.50-199.21 52-week range. In its last report it warned that several thousand employees could be impacted. The major stock indices are still in shallow negative territory.
