10yr yields hit their highs of the morning at 1.7426 and MBS hit their lows with Fannie 3.0s returning to 104-21 before bouncing back to 104-24.
Today will be an important one to "know thy lender," as reprice likelihoods are just as much an exercise is psychoanalysis as they are about observing MBS price movements.
