    • BlackRock (NYSE:BLK) CEO Larry Fink pens an open letter to corporate CEOs here and in Europe urging them to focus on long-term value creation.
    • Echoing many of the points made by a certain presidential candidate, Fink notes S&P 500 dividends last year amounted to the highest proportion of earnings since 2009, and buybacks through the end of Q3 were 27% above year-ago levels. While supporting the return of excess cash to shareholders (they are the owners of the company, after all), Fink asks companies to adopt "balanced capital plans."
    • "We are asking that every CEO lay out for shareholders each year a strategic framework for long-term value creation. Additionally, because boards have a critical role to play in strategic planning, we believe CEOs should explicitly affirm that their boards have reviewed those plans."
    • As for quarterly earnings "hysteria," Fink isn't a fan. While still supporting the reporting of quarterly results, Fink asks companies to do away with forward guidance, and instead focus on demonstrating progress made toward fulfilling strategic plans.

    • Proving wily central bankers can always find more bullets, the Bank of Japan overnight adopted negative rates for the first time ever, setting a -0.1% rate on deposits.
    • The Nikkei climbed 2.8%, the yen is lower by 1.8%, and the 10-year JGB yield falls 12 basis points to 0.10%! Memo to D.C.: It's been more than 20 years of massive fiscal and monetary stimulus in Japan and this is where we're at.
    • Shanghai jumped 3.1% and Hong Kong 2.5%.
    • "Been there, done that," says Europe, which is up just under 1% at midday.
    • U.S. stock index futures are up about 0.7% across the board even as Amazon tumbles 11% post-earnings.
    • The big U.S. action is in government bond yields, with the 10-year down five basis points to 1.93%. Gold and oil are little-changed.

    • Oil and stocks got a big early lift on renewed rumors of cooperation between Russia and OPEC on production cuts.
    • Four OPEC delegates, however, say they've heard nothing about any plans for talks, reports Bloomberg, which notes significant obstacles to an agreement - including Saudi Arabia's desire to hold onto market share, and Russia's inability to cut production during the winter months. OPEC next meets in June.
    • Up nearly 8% earlier, oil has pared back to a 3.4% gain. USO +3.4%. The XLE has trimmed its advance, now up 1.75%, and the major averages have moved into the red. S&P 500 (SPY -0.1%), DJIA (DIA -0.2%), Nasdaq (QQQ -0.1%).

    • The chatter began earlier this week of some sort of looming agreement between Russia and OPEC for production cuts, and it's getting new life this morning.
    • WTi crude is now higher by 4.6% to $33.75 per barrel, and is dragging the XLE up 3.3%, and the major averages, with S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPY) and Dow (NYSEARCA:DIA) futures higher by nearly 1% after being about flat not long ago.
    • USO +7.2% premarket

    • The S&P 500 (SPY -0.1%) and DJIA (DIA -0.3%) remain near flat, and the Nasdaq (QQQ -0.9%) modestly lower after the FOMC considerably softens its recent hawkish tone.
    • Trading at 2.05% ahead of the announcement, the 10-year Treasury yield slips to 2.02%. TLT -0.2%, TBT +0.4%
    • Gold adds $6 per ounce to $1,121 - right about its highest level since late October. GLD flat on the session.
    • The dollar (UUP -0.2%) weakens across the board, and is now modestly lower today.

    • Sharply lower all day, oil has turned higher by $0.68 per barrel to $32.10 despite bearish inventory data from the EIA. Alongside the big surge in inventories, however, the EIA says U.S. production edged lower by 14K to 9.22M barrels per day. The peak in output was last April at 9.7M. USO +4%
    • It's not much, but it's the trend that matters, says one industry watcher.
    • The big move in oil has the XLE higher by 1.9%, and the S&P 500 (SPY +0.5%) and DJIA (DIA +0.3%) both in the green from earlier near 1% losses. The Nasdaq (QQQ -0.5%) is rallying too, but still in the red as Apple tumbles 5%.

    • 4.2% post-earnings decline in Apple has Nasdaq 100 (NASDAQ:QQQ) futures lower by 1%, the S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPYby 0.6%, and Dow (NYSEARCA:DIA) futures by 0.4%.
    • The FOMC decision is due at 2 ET, and no policy change is expected. The statement will be studied for clues about whether the Fed is backing of its near-promise to hike again in March.
    • Asia closed with gains overnight, and Europe is modestly lower at midday.
    • The 10-year Treasury yield is up one basis point at 2.01%, gold is down $4 per ounce, and oil is lower by 3.2% to $30.45 per barrel.
