MBS RECAP: Lots of Indecision, But The Outcome Should Make Sense
Jun 25 2020, 2:50PM

Both stocks and bonds are trading sideways after taking a step back from their early June momentum.  This indecision reflects uncertainty about economic reopening vs rising covid case counts.  As soon as a clear winner emerges, markets (and rates) will move accordingly.
