MBS RECAP: Impressive Move to Longer-Term Lows. What's Next?
Jul 8 2021, 4:20PM

The centerpiece of today's global trading session was an impressive overnight rally that took 10yr yields as low as 1.25%.  That was strong enough to merit a corrective bounce between 7am and 9:30am, but yields topped out just over 1.30%, not once, but multiple times.  The result is a classic pivot/inflection point on the 2-day chart--one we can continue to watch for evidence that bullish aspirations are shifting.  As far as today was concerned, the repeated bounces at 1.30% added validity to the rally, at the very least.
