Slumping Stocks, Weak EU Close Boost Bonds; Positive Reprice Potential
Posted to: Micro News
Friday, July 25, 2014 1:36 PM
MBS Are at their best levels of the day, just over yesterday's highs. Fannie 3.5s are a quarter of a point higher at 102-12. While a quarter of a point is a solid improvement day-over-day, it's only an eighth of a point higher than most lenders' rate sheet print times, meaning we're just now getting to the leading edge of positive reprice potential.
10yr yields have moved 4.4bps lower to 2.466 and the S&P is down over 10 points. The improvement in Treasuries is fairly uninteresting considering yesterday's weakness was fairly pronounced. In short, it simply puts us right back in the holding-zone that had been intact since last Thursday.
A break below 2.44 would be a different story (in that it would be more interesting). As it stands, we're still waiting for next week's big-ticket events to cast a vote on whether we break lower (i.e. move through to 2.3's) or bounce back up, effectively remaining in 2014's established range. That said, the waiting is much more comfortable today than it was yesterday.
