MBS Live: MBS Afternoon Market Summary
Third day of the week is apparently the charm for MBS...  Tuesday and Wednesday saw a level of spread-widening versus Treasuries that bordered on alarming.  In other words, 10yr Treasuries were holding their ground while MBS were losing it.  Today it was MBS's turn to outperform as Fannie 3.0s added 5 ticks vs unchanged Treasuries.  That only makes up for part of the relative weakness of the past few days, but it's a start, and more importantly, stops the alarming trend.  Morning data was largely expected to be weak due to Hurricane impact and was largely much weaker than even the downwardly revised expectations!  That helped bond markets along into the noon hour whereupon they leveled off before breaking into 2-day highs.

Afternoon Reprice Alerts and Updates
Below is a recap of instant Reprice Alerts and updates issued via email and text alert to MBS Live subscribers this afternoon.

12:01PM  :  ALERT ISSUED: MBS, Treasuries At Best Levels As Stocks Swoon
The beat down goes on for equities markets as S&P's are at their worst levels since July 26th. MBS and Treasuries are at their best levels, well... since yesterday, but we'll take it! Both are near their two-day highs in price and for Treasuries particularly, this is clear-cut intermediate resistance level at 1.579 (hit perfectly on 11/9, 11/13, 11/14, and getting close today with 10's currently at 1.5826.

Keep in mind that trendlines can't tell us anything at all about what's going to happen in the future, but act as a tripwire of sorts, setting off some level of alarm when they're crossed. In other words, if 10's break below the 1.579 pivot, it's potentially significant, but would still require confirmation.

MBS are holding mostly within their own trendlines so far this morning with Fannie 3.0s up 5 ticks on the day to 104-29. This has been enough for one positive reprice so far and the shape of the gains is such that we might see a few additional reprices, but nothing spectacular at the moment.

Same reminder on trendlines for MBS... There's currently a trend-channel on the MBS chart, and while we HOPE it continues to hold, it's presence does not guarantee that. Rather, it simply serves as a line in the sand that might give us an early indication that today's uptrend is leveling off. Until then, the trend is our friend.
