    by Victor Burek on March 06 2009, 9:33 AM

    by Victor Burek on March 05 2009, 2:16 PM

  • Tuesday 3/3…Pending Home Sales Due Out

    by Victor Burek on March 03 2009, 9:08 AM
    Yesterday, mortgage backed securities managed to have a small rally and close higher by about .375 in discount. When I say we closed higher by .375 in discount I mean that if a rate was costing .375 in points that rate would cost nothing today. The main...

    by Victor Burek on February 27 2009, 11:14 AM
