Treasuries extended a third week of gains amid speculation a political standoff over the U.S. budget will lead to a government shutdown, boosting demand for the safest assets.
My position on MBS stays neutral.

Market Commentary (Dan Rawitch)

Todays news was all within expectations, but on the good side of expectations. Bonds are remaining bullish and continue to be willing to push the current trend. We arre at the top of residual resistance back from late June. Not sure if we have the momentum and velocity to blow through that today. We are still due for a small correction, so I remain cautious here.
