MBS RECAP: Strong Start to a Slow Week
Jul 6 2021, 4:00PM

Bonds rallied today, both before and after the weak ISM Non-Manufacturing data.  "Weak" is a relative term considering 60.1 is one of the 10 best results for this report in 16 years.  Notably, most of the day's rally was intact BEFORE the data came out.  That's a reassuring start to a holiday-shortened week that ran the risk of being distorted by lighter volumes and a potential push back against Friday's post-payrolls gains.
