Key Economic Data:
No news items.


Treasuries were little changed before a report tomorrow economists forecast will show home sales picked up. Following the most turbulent period for U.S. bonds in more than three years, 10-year yields fluctuated around last weeks close of 2.195 percent. U.S. existing home sales rose 1 percent last month, based on a Bloomberg News survey of economists, after falling 1.8 percent in August. Federal Reserve Bank of Boston President Eric Rosengren said the U.S. bond-purchase program could be extended if there is additional erosion in the growth outlook. We expect the U.S. economy to remain resilient in the face of weaker global growth, said Nick Stamenkovic, a senior strategist at RIA Capital Markets Ltd. in Edinburgh. We doubt the recent rally in Treasuries will be sustained over the medium term, with 10-year yields gravitating towards 3 percent in the next 6 to 12 months. The U.S. 10-year yield fell one basis point, or 0.01 percentage point, to 2.19 percent at 8:11 a.m. in New York, according to Bloomberg Bond Trader prices. The 2.375 percent note due in August 2024 rose 2/32, or $0.63 per $1,000 face amount, to 101 5/8. The yield dropped to 1.86 percent on Oct. 15, the lowest level since May 2013.


My position on MBS:


Short term stays Neutral
Long term stays Neutral


Long = I anticipate pricing to improve which leads to lower Rates.
Neutral = Market should stay close to open plus or minimums 25bps.
Short = I anticipate pricing to weaken which leads to higher Rates.


Short term = 1 - 2 days out
Long term = 30+ days out

Market Commentary (Dan Rawitch)

Bonds have stablized at good point. We should continue to see movement a little sideways, but still within the upward channel. CPI will be closely watched this week, as it is and always has been a KEY component to sustained lower bond prices.


No news today, so just watch the trading range of 103.50- 104.20.
