There's no denying that it's a bit harder than average to get out of bed on the Monday following "spring forward," but bond markets seem to have avoided that chore altogether today. Volume and volatility are among the lowest few sessions of the year for both MBS and Treasuries despite a reasonable advance in the equities complex. This was a problem right from the outset. Even though Asian and European markets were open and even though there were several economic reports and moderately interesting headlines, none of it inspired any commitment for better or worse in bond markets. 10yr Treasuries spent the day almost exclusively between 2.04 and 2.06 while Fannie 3.0 MBS held a narrow 3 tick range between 102-03 and 102-06. Tomorrow should see a moderate ramp up in activity though still remains relatively sparse as far as the calendar is concerned.
