    • The 10-year Treasury yield popped up to 2.20% right after the report, but is returned back to 2.18% - up three basis points on the session. TLT -0.4%, TBT +0.8% premarket

    • The dollar index is off 1% today, and now lower by about 3% since Thanksgiving, though the move doesn't look like much more than a blip in the big bull market which began in the middle of 2014.
    • At least today, the move lower is not just about the surging post-ECB meeting euro (FXE +1%). Also higher by more than 1% against the greenback are the pound (NYSEARCA:FXB) and yen (NYSEARCA:FXY). The commodity currencies - the loonie (NYSEARCA:FXC) and aussie (NYSEARCA:FXA) - continue to struggle, and are both lower on the session.

    • "Today [Thursday] was not the most fun day I’ve ever had," said Goldman Chief Currency Strategist Robin Brooks, after the euro zoomed 3.1% higher following the ECB policy statement and press conference. "What’s clear is the meeting sent a very confusing message."
    • Among the most bearish on the euro on the Street - he sees the common currency falling to $0.95 in a year - Brooks had predicted a "dovish" surprise from Mario Draghi, but instead got a nominal cut in the deposit rate and only an extension (not a boost) to QE. The euro erased a month's worth of losses in one session (it's given back about one-third of that gain today). It's currently at $1.0839.
    • "We badly misread this meeting ... Even in the unlikely event that today’s disappointment was a mistake, we think it has cost enough credibility that the euro-down story we had envisaged is now less likely to play out."

    • Previously soft-scheduled to end in September of 2016, the ECB's QE will go on until at least March 2017, says the central bank's boss Mario Draghi, opening his post-policy meeting press conference.
    • Jaded financial markets want more and are voting thumbs down this on "tepid" measure. Interest rates and the euro are on the move higher, and investors are unloading stocks.
    • Flat ahead of the press conference, the Stoxx 50 (NYSEARCA:FEZ) is lower by 2.6%, and the euro is now higher by 1.7% to $1.08. Germany's (NYSEARCA:EWG2.4% decline is leading the way.

    • Not waiting for the official release of the ECB statement, the euro (NYSEARCA:FXE) is flying higher on an FT report of no change to central bank policy.

    • Among the moves being considered by the ECB, according to Reuters, are two-tiered charges to banks leaving cash with the central bank, the purchase of regional bonds, and even the acquisition of ABS of distressed loans.
    • "We have deflation, so you have to do something," says a source. "How this all looks in a few years, nobody knows."
    • The ECB meets next week, so we won't have to wait long to hear the real story.
    • The euro (NYSEARCA:FXE) has dropped below $1.06, and the Stoxx 50 (NYSEARCA:FEZ) is higher by 1.2%, led by Germany's (NYSEARCA:EWG1.5% advance.

    • U.S. stock index futures are all lower by about 0.35%, as are FTSE 100 futures, but the continent is being hit harder, with France (NYSEARCA:EWQdown 1.6% and Germany (NYSEARCA:EWG0.85%.
    • The euro (NYSEARCA:FXE) is off 0.5% vs the dollar at $1.0718.
    • U.S. government paper and gold are seeing bids, with the 10-year Treasury yield down two basis points to 2.25%, and gold (NYSEARCA:GLDhigher by 1% to $1,091.50 per ounce.

    • U.S. stock index futures have moved from flat to down 0.3% since October's nonfarm payroll beat has put the odds squarely in favor of a rate hike in one month.
    • Europe, however, has turned losses into gains, possibly thanks to a spike higher in the dollar (UUP, UDN) and thus a big move lower in the euro (NYSEARCA:FXE). The dollar index is up 1.15%, the euro down 1.7%, and the Stoxx 50 (NYSEARCA:FEZup 0.3%.
    • Gold (NYSEARCA:GLD) is lower by 1.3% since the print to $1,090 per ounce - its weakest level since early August.

    • ECB Governing Council member Peter Praet earlier said the crash in commodity prices and slowdown in overseas economies put the central bank at risk of missing its inflation target on the downside. "There should be no ambiguity on the willingness and ability of the governing council to act if needed."
    • The euro (NYSEARCA:FXE) is lower by 1% to 1.1370. The dollar index (NYSEARCA:UUP) is ahead by 1%.

    • The October Fed Funds futures contract is edging higher again today, and at 99.79 is just seven basis points lower than the August contract - meaning less than a one-in-three chance of a 25 basis point rate hike in September. The January contract is up to 99.675, putting the odds of a 25 point move anytime this year at just 75%.
    • One has to go all the way out to August 2016 to see 50 basis points of rate hikes priced in.
    • Alongside the reduced expectations of tighter policy, the dollar (UUP -0.8%), (UDN +0.6%) has fallen to a two-month low. For all the talk about "king dollar" this year, the greenback has been in a fairly clear downtrend since the start of the spring. It's still up about 3.5% on the year.
    • As for today's action, the biggest gainers vs. the dollar are the euro (FXE +1.1%), yen (FXY +0.9%), and swissie (FXF +0.6%).  Still losing ground are the commodity currencies - the loonie (FXC -0.7%) and aussie (FXA -0.2%).
