MBS Live: MBS Afternoon Market Summary

Fannie 4.0s spent most of the morning just barely in negative territory and most of the afternoon in the green.  All of the above was contained inside an eighth of a point of movement, for the most part (technically it was a 5/32nds range, but only for a moment or two).

Treasuries fared slightly worse, but not much, holding near 1bp higher from Tuesday at 2.9924 into the afternoon.  There were no detectable reasons to trade in either direction and no detectable traders to do so in the first place.  This holiday paralysis should continue tomorrow.
