    • Stock index futures are marginally higher after yesterday's modest rally and as earnings continue to pour in.
    • A European move higher is being led by Italy's 1.6% gain after the resignation of the Prime Minister there yesterday. Asia was mostly higher, but the Nikkei stumbled to a 1.5% loss.
    • After yesterday's big decline in response to weak economic data, the 10-year Treasury yield is higher by a basis point to 2.74%. Gold continues a big rally for the year, up another 1.3% in early trade to $1,317 per ounce.

    • Saying she was surprised by the weakness in the last two jobs reports, Janet Yellen mentions the weather, and warns not to be too quick to jump to conclusions. “It is important to take our time to assess what the significance of this is."
    • The Fed, she says, could pause the taper should there be a significant change in the outlook. A "significant deterioration" in the outlook or the risk of deflation could force an increase in QE.
    • Live feed of the hearing
    • Previous coverage of prepared testimony
    • Stocks are at session highs, the DJIA (DIA +0.8%), the S&P 500 (SPY), and the Nasdaq 100 (QQQ +0.6%), and the 10-year Treasury yield remains higher by four basis points at 2.72%. TLT -0.6%, TBT +1%

    • Making the rounds on trading desks is this chart of the DJIA (DIA) of the last 18 months superimposed on a chart of the index during the same time frame in 1928-1929. The short version: If form holds, the market is set for another epic crash.
    • In the more nuanced version, the chart says little except for again proving the hardwired tendency of the human brain to see patterns where none exist, and one is reminded of similar exercises over the past few years making the case for the Dow breaching its financial crisis lows.
    • Technical guru Tom DeMark, however, is starting to believe:  “Originally, I drew [the chart] for entertainment purposes only ... Now it’s evolved into something more serious.”
    • Tom McClellan: "There is no guarantee that the market has to continue following through with every step of the 1929 pattern. But between now and May 2014, there is plenty of reason for caution.”

    • Yesterday's lame bounce doesn't look like it will be sustained on the open as stock index futures all slip about 0.2% amid a heavy flow of quarterly earnings reports.
    • Europe can't sustain a rally and is flat on the session, and the Nikkei manages to post a gain of 1.2% after falling about 15% this year.
    • The 10-year Treasury yield is down one basis point at 2.63% and gold is higher by 0.6% to $1,259 per ounce.

    • Gotta be the weather. The January ISM misses estimates by a mile, slumping to 51.3 vs. 56 expected and 57 in December. It's the lowest print since May 2013.
    • New Orders dove to 51.2 from 64.4, Production 54.8 from 61.7, Employment 52.3 from 55.8, Backlogs 48 from 51.5. On the rise are Prices to 60.5 from 53.5, with natural gas among those noted as headed higher.
    • Among the comments: "Poor weather impacted outbound and inbound shipments," "Good finish to 2013, but slow start to 2014, mostly attributed to weather," "We have experienced many late deliveries during the past week due to the weather shutting down truck lines."
    • Full report
    • Weather or not, the economic slowdown meme is on center stage. In the red before the report, Treasury prices reverse higher, TLT +0.4%, TBT -1%. The 10-year Treasury yield is now lower by two basis points to 2.63%.

    • Stocks appear set for an opening bounce after yesterday's drubbing, with S&P 500 (SPY) futures +0.3% and Nasdaq 100 (QQQ+0.4%.
    • Treasury prices give back some of yesterday's big gains, the 10-year yield up two basis points to 2.70%, and gold slips 0.6% to $1,255 per ounce.
    • Europe's mixed and Japan tumbled 2.5% overnight.

    • There's little surprise as the Fed continues to taper its asset purchases and says future moves will be data dependent.
    • As for ZIRP, the FOMC expects it will remain in place "well past the time" when the headline UE rate falls below 6.5%, "especially if projected inflation continues to run below the Committee's 2 percent longer-run goal." Eurodollar futures are pricing in about 100 basis points of tightening between now and December 2015.
    • The vote in favor of today's action was unanimous.
    • Equities slip to session lows in wake of the news, the Dow (DIA -1%), S&P 500 (SPY -0.8%), and Nasdaq 100 (QQQ -0.9%), and Treasury yields continue five basis points lower on the session, the 10-year at 2.71%. TLT +0.4%.

    • Stock index futures (SPY, DIA, QQQ) are flat as earnings continue to pour in and ahead of the results of the FOMC meeting. Futures got a nice boost last night after Turkey jacked rates 425 basis points to combat the declining lira, but that bounce is gone, and Europe's flat after opening with big gains, and Turkey (TUR) is now lower by 1%.
    • The big mover in Asia overnight was Tokyo which gained 2.7%.
    • The 10-year Treasury yield is up one basis point to 2.77% and gold is up 0.8% to $1,261 per ounce.

    • Ex-Apple, there's a decent rally afoot, S&P 500 (SPY) and DJIA (DIA) futures +0.5%, while Nasdaq 100 (QQQ) futures -0.3%. Apple's off 7%.
    • Europe's up more than half a percent and Asia was little-changed overnight. The rush out of emerging market currencies is the macro theme of the moment and it's paused for the moment as Turkish policymakers meet to likely decide on hiking rates and India pushed through a rate hike a few hours back.
    • The 10-year Treasury yield is up 3 basis points to 2.78% and gold is off 0.8% to $1,254 per ounce.
