MBS weakened versus Treasuries following the news though Treasuries have weakened themselves (making things doubly bad for MBS.
This puts several lenders at risk for negative reprices already, depending on the time of morning that initial rate sheets were released (the assumption being that the earlier the rate sheet, the higher the risk).
Fannie 4.0s are down 4 ticks on the day and 10yr yields are up 1bp.
