MBS RECAP: Highest Yields in Months. Could Jobs Report Make it Worse?
Oct 7 2021, 3:29PM

After a somewhat hopeful bounce in yesterday's trading session, and a decent overnight session, Thursday ended up being a bad day. With the jobs report on deck tomorrow, could things get even worse?  That's always a possibility, but it wouldn't necessarily have to do with whether or not the jobs report is stronger or weaker than expected.  Either way, and no matter what happens tomorrow, the path of least resistance is clearly toward higher rates.
