    Utterly Shocking Resilience in Bond Markets

    This is turning out to be one of the most resilient bond market responses to a stronger NFP number, ever.  Despite a fairly massive 78k 'beat,' Fannie 4.0s are only down 5 ticks day over day, and well within yesterday's trading range at this point.  The bounce back from the first wave of selling has been fairly linear and drama-free as well.  Case in point:

    2014-5-2 MBS

    Treasuries are underperforming just a bit, but are still inching back into yesterday morning's range--currently up 5.25bps at 2.656.  If we consider that the longer-term range from February through now has been 2.6-2.8, being at 2.65+ after a big NFP beat is really quite something, and perhaps even reveals some underlying bond bullishness that was merely forced to cope with unexpectedly strong data.

    Nonfarm Payrolls 288k vs 210k Forecast; Bonds Tanking
    • April NFP 288k vs 210k forecast
    • March revised to 203k from 192, Feb revised to 222k from 197
    • Private Payrolls 273k vs 210k forecast
    • Unemployment Rate 6.3 pct, lowest since Sept 2008, 6.7pct forecast/previous

    As you might expect, this number is not good for bond markets, and so the range is likely to persist.  10yr yields shot immediately from 2.62 to 2.68--which is actually not that big of a move considering the data.  Fannie 4.0 MBS lost an immediate 3/8ths of a point and are currently down 13/32nds on the day at 104-18.

    More to follow as the market trades this out.
