On the heals of a rough day in the market, we have continued this disturbing rate trend today. Mixed economic data has caused a volatile morning. Two early economic reports were negative for Mortgage Backed Securities (MBS). The Employment Cost Index which measures the cost of labor, increased during the 2nd quarter of 2014 at the fastest pace since the 3rd quarter of 2008. Fed Officials are closesly watching wage gains as an indicator of labor market slack, so today's data may increase pressure on the Fed to raise the Fed Funds Rate. In addition, weekly Jobless Claims were close to expectations. Jobless Claims near the 300K level are consistent with an improving labor market. MBS then recovered some losses after today's later economic report. The Chicago PMI Manufacturing index declined sharply to the lowest level since June, 2013. Readings indicate an expansion in this sector. The big Employment report wil come out tomorrow.
The market has opened roughly 0.125 WORSE for the Points/Credits associated with any given interest rate option.
