GDP Q1 annualized, consumer sentiment index

The U.S. 10-year Treasury yield remains above 3% this morning, trading at 3.0165% by 5:40am EST. Analysts are not expecting much more of a move higher from here, with more than half of those surveyed by Bloomberg expecting the yield to end the year within 25 basis points of 3%. There will be a test of the bond markets appetite for U.S. debt later today when the Treasury sells $35 billion of 5-year notes at 1:00pm. Overnight, the MSCI Asia Pacific Index lost 0.5%, while Japan's Topix index closed 0.1% lower amid concerns the global growth environment may be deteriorating. In Europe, the Stoxx 600 Index was down 0.9% by 5:40am amid disappointing earning and drops in commodity-linked shares. S&P 500 futures pointed to further losses at the open, and gold was lower.
