- MBS RECAP: The Flatness Continues; MBS Perfectly Unchanged After Only Modest Volatility

Posted To: MBS Commentary

The last week of Summer continues to be the last week of Summer as far as markets are concerned. Email auto-responders are working overtime, parents are back-to-school shopping, and market-watchers have yet another opportunity to remember that Wall Street--despite the alluring idea of "black box trading"--couldn't run without human power. As strange as it may be for the average "Occupy Wall Streeter" to consider, the guys and gals that make the trading world go 'round are remarkably normal. They don't have secret parties where they drink the blood of the underprivileged, but instead enjoy the same sort of Summertime days off that everyone else does. When that happens en masse, the effect on trading activity is noticeable. Yesterday was the 2nd slowest day of...(read more)

MBS are always trading with some level of correlation to broader bond markets...(read more)

Posted To: MBS Commentary

Bond markets started the day little-changed from the previous session and having seen little volatility overnight. Although it wasn't destined to be too consequential, the Durable Goods data was at least interesting--setting a record for month-over-month improvement thanks to Boeing's 777 order glut. The internal components of the report that ignore aircraft were markedly weaker than expected, however. Bond markets improved following the weak internals with both MBS and Treasuries hitting their best levels in over a week. The turning point came with the open of cash trading in stocks and was accelerated by the stronger-than-expected Consumer Confidence data. Unlike Durable Goods earlier this morning, the internal components of the confidence data were stable to strong. Notably, the...(read more)
