MBS MID-DAY: Weaker To Start, Weaker After Data, Holding Lows Now
Feb 13 2013, 11:09AM
: MBS Morning Market Summary
Bond markets were against the ropes from the outset this morning as a healthy clip of overnight data and events in Europe pressured safe-haven German Bunds and US Treasuries higher. UK's analogous benchmark (the "Gilt") was the worst of the bunch owing to inflation comments from a Bank of England governor. Much like MBS stay relatively correlated with Treasuries, all securities with similar risk, duration, and liquidity profiles exhibit varying levels of correlation. Bunds and Treasuries have been best friends in that regard since the major shift into high gear of EU panic in mid 2011, but Gilts are in the same circle of friends, even if not as friendly as Germany and the US. Stronger economic data in the Eurozone as well as well-received Italian debt auctions were factors in the weakness as well. MBS camd in the door at 103-24 and despite holding ground initially following the as-expected Retail Sales report (they actually strengthened briefly) soon succumbed to Treasury flows at 9am. They've been holding fairly sideways since then with weaker stocks constituting a positive influence and the looming 10yr Auction a negative. The auction is at 1pm and could take things either way.

Head Fake Bounce After Data, Now Back To Weakest Levels
As-expected Retail Sales data is had been helping to push back against a collection of overnight data and events in Europe and Asia that conspired to lift 10yr yields to 2.02 earlier this morning, though we're right back to the weakest levels of the morning now.
Before that, Asia was fairly inconsequential last night, despite ongoing volatility in the Yen (yeah, currency is hot-topic suddenly) surrounding the G7 meeting. Chinese holidays continue to keep much of the Asian trading contingent sidelined this week. US Treasuries and Euros (yeah... the currency), didn't budge until the European session began.
When it did, it was almost an exclusively negative thing for domestic bond markets. Eurozone Industrial Production came in at +0.7 vs +0.2 expectations, and Italy's debt auctions were well-received. Unlike a well-received US Treasury auction, when Europe's periphery sees strong auctions, it typically has a negative impact on safer haven German Bunds and US Treasuries. Hawkish comments inflation comments from the Bank of England also weighed on safe-haven debt (British Gilts actually led the weakness, followed by German Bunds, and US Treasuries).
This ushered Treasuries in the door between 2.0 and 2.01. We saw 2.019 ahead of Retail Sales, but the tepid report helped a moderate bounce lower to 2.0. All the while MBS haven't moved much, holding a range from 102-23+ to 102-25. Import/Export data was released at the same time, but even spending this one sentence mentioning it, is more than it deserves.
Whatever positive response we might have been hoping for following Retail Sales has just now been fully unwound as 10yr yields cross back over the highs of the morning. MBS will likely be breaking their 102-23 lows and we'll likely be sending you another update at the next notable stop on this little morning roller coaster. 10's are currently up to 2.0241 and climbing.

".1, wow, setting those expectations high as usual"
"Stock futures up again, something tells me we will break all time highs on Dow by the end of the week. And why not, I mean the economy is amazing & we have no issues."
"Forecast is only .1 what can we really hope for?"
Oliver S. Orlicki
"we need a swing and a miss on retail sales to get this turned in the right direction"
"will be under pressure all day until 10 Year bond sale at 1:00 / same thing tomorrow for 30 year bond sale / hopefully on friday , we have a little rally in front of weekend and after bond auctions are done"
"Ughhhh 102-24 ouch"
"POTUS did acknowledge the difficulty that many would-be borrowers face in shopping for a home loan. "Even with mortgage rates near a 50-year low, too many families with solid credit who want to buy a home are being rejected," he said. "
"gm, i listened to it all. it wasnt as confrontational as i thought it might be"
"Gm, all. Did miss something on the POTUS' speech, other than willing to compromise on immigration, that was bond unfriendly? Not that the immigration issue relates to bonds but everything else sounded like more of the same before I couldn't listen anymore. Anyone listen to the whole speech. And thenRubio goes and creates a Saturday Night Live skit with the water bottle. Nice going Republicans."
