MBS RECAP: Strong Showing Overall Despite Late Day Weakness
Nov 19 2021, 3:13PM

As noted in this morning's commentary, the key source of inspiration overnight was Austria's covid lockdown announcement.  Yields plunged in response and didn't do much else for the rest of the day.  MBS, on the other hand, happened to slide toward weaker levels throughout the day, but we're not reading too much into that for reasons discussed in today's video.
