    • The averages are at session highs after the FOMC minutes confirmed the central bankers to be far less positive about the economic outlook than they were six weeks earlier when they hiked interest rates.
    • Some on the FOMC said the "dots" - which currently show expectations for four rate hikes this year - are confusing markets, and discussed adding fan charts to their outlook to convey how uncertain their forecasts are. This would lead to another issue though: Whether that "fan" should be allowed to extend below zero ... There's that negative rate talk again.
    • The Nasdaq (NASDAQ:QQQ) is higher by 2.25%, the S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPYby 1.7%, and DJIA (NYSEARCA:DIAby 1.65%.
    • The 10-year Treasury yield is ahead by six basis points to 1.84% TLT -0.8%, TBT +1.6%

    • 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.
