MBS RECAP: How Does Today's Big Sell-Off Affect The Bigger Picture?
Jul 13 2021, 3:43PM

Bonds sold off somewhat aggressively this afternoon following the 30yr bond auction, but not before staging an impressive recovery in the face of the highest core inflation reading in nearly 30 years.  The net effect is a bond market that continues to trade at the lowest yields in 5 months, with the exception of the past week.  Today's video discusses how this impacts the bigger picture.
