- MBS RECAP: Sideways Day for MBS Despite Weakening Treasuries

Posted To: MBS Commentary

Fannie 3.5s stayed inside a 4 tick (.125) range today despite a round of upbeat economic data at 10am and a clear trend toward higher yields in Treasuries. This isn't an uncommon divergence when Treasury yields have bounced at recent lows, as they did on Thursday and Friday. Part of the reason is the general phenomenon of MBS simply moving less in either direction. That's compounded in this case by Treasuries' role as a hedging vehicle for corporate bond issuance (large companies who plan to issue bonds frequently sell and buy Treasuries to protect against market movements while their deals are being finalized). Whatever the combination of factors, the result is a 10yr yield that moved more than 3bps higher over the course of the day vs Fannie 3.5 prices that held relatively steady...(read more)

Posted To: Mortgage Rate Watch

Mortgage rates were higher today, ending nearly a week and a half of modest improvements. While no individual day stood out during that time, the combined effect took rates extremely close to their lowest levels of the year. Had today moved in a more friendly direction, some lenders would be at 2014 lows. Instead, we remain in the same narrow range that's characterized the past 4 months. The most prevalent conforming 30yr fixed rate quote is unchanged at 4.125%, but the closing costs would be higher than they were on Friday. Whereas last week's day to day changes were exceptionally small, things could be getting more volatile this week . That said, volatility would be relative to that calm baseline. So we're not talking about the risk of 4.125 quickly becoming 4.375% or 3.875--simply that closing...(read more)

Posted To: MND NewsWire

Home Equity Lines of Credit or HELOCs are one area of focus of the July Mortgage Monitor issued by Black Knight Financial Services on Tuesday. The company said there is still concern about possible payment shock for homeowners with HELOCS as the millions put in place during the housing boom reset and begin to amortize. Black Knight estimates that at least 2.5 million borrowers face these resets over the next three years. At that point the period during which borrowers can draw down on their home equity through these loans will end and the loans will convert from an interest only payment schedule to a fully amortizing one. The average increase in payments is estimated at $250 per month. According to Kostya Gradushy, Black Knight's manager of Research and Analytics, this average could increase...(read more)
