  • MBS UPDATE: Selling Continues

    by Matthew Graham on February 03 2009, 12:22 PM
    Not much change from last but to reinforce downward price pressure. Now down to 100-21 in 4.5s, additional reprice risk if you haven't seen it already.

  • MBS ALERT: TSYs Dragging Down MBS

    by AQ on February 03 2009, 10:34 AM
    As the yield curve steepens (10yr and 30 yr Treasuries selling off more than short term bills and notes) the MBS stack has started to get sucked into the sell bias... This justifies the premise that yesterdays bond market rally was due to a short covering...
  • MBS MORNING: Limited Data, But Plenty Of Headline Potential, if MBS even care...

    by Matthew Graham on February 03 2009, 6:16 AM
    MBS have been disconnected from almost all economic data recently. Even headlines, unless they're of the ilk of a $500bln fed purchasing announcement, fail to raise pulses that much. Ironically, it's the Fed buying that's the likely culprit...
