    Holding Ground in Weaker Territory After Lackluster Housing Data

    Bond markets were weaker overnight, further backing away from the geopolitical risk-driven rally that took place yesterday morning.  Stronger Chinese GDP also helped markets move back towards 'risk' (stocks and bond yields higher). 

    By the open, 10yr yields and MBS were both almost perfectly back in line with yesterday's weakest levels.  So far, they've gone no higher thanks to a weaker-than-expected reading on Housing Starts. 

    • March Housing Starts 946k vs 973k forecast
    • February Housing Starts revised to 920k from 907k
    • Housing Permits 990k vs 1008k forecast
    • singe-family permits and starts rose while multifamily fell

    MBS and Treasuries both improved just slightly following the data and are currently at their best levels of the morning.  Stocks are at their weakest levels of the morning--a fact that further helps bond markets in the current environment (where the stock lever has been so well connected).
