MBS RECAP: Fundamental Hope But Technical Caution
Jul 13 2020, 3:38PM

Market Movement Recap
08:05 AM

Bonds were almost perfectly flat in very light trading overnight.  Treasuries are starting the day roughly unchanged from Friday's latest levels.  MBS are down an eighth.  Stocks are .7% higher (S&P futures).

12:02 PM

Some resilience in bonds despite additional gains in equities.  Yields remain well off Friday's lows, but have now returned to 'unchanged' for the 10yr.  2.0 UMBS are down an eighth of a point at 102-18 (102.56).

03:03 PM

Stocks dropped quickly at 2pm and MBS seemed to glean more of a benefit than Treasuries.  UMBS 2.0 coupons briefly turned green but weren't able to maintain the gains (now down 2 ticks or 0.06 on the day).
