Advice:
Treasuries advanced after a U.S. bond-market gauge of inflation expectations dropped to the lowest level in six years and a decline in stocks and commodity prices boosted demand for haven assets. Slowing inflation is helping cap Treasury yields as the
Federal Reserve moves toward raising interest rates. Atlanta Fed President Dennis Lockhart said on Monday hes confident the central bank will carry out an increase this year. European shares retreated with U.S. equity-index futures, underpinning
demand for government bonds. Two-year notes were little changed before the Treasury sells $26 billion of securities due in September 2017 later on Tuesday. The Fed is clearly mindful of global disinflation pressures eident from lower commodity prices, said Nick Stamenkovic, a fixed-income strategist at broker RIA Capital Markets Ltd. in Edinburgh. Global factors are keeping inflation and yields low in the U.S. despite a tighter labor markets. Waning risk appetite is also providing a boost for Treasuries.
The benchmark 10-year yield dropped three basis points, or 0.03 percentage point, to 2.17 percent as of 7:30 a.m. in New York, according to Bloomberg Bond Trader data. The 2 percent note due August 2025 rose 10/32, or $3.13 per $1,000 face
amount, to 98 1/2. The yield climbed seven basis points on Monday.

My position on MBS:

Short term Changes to Neutral.
Long term Stays Short.

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)

The bond market is showing strength this morning. The positive movement is caused by the slamming of the equity markets, which are down heavily due to news out of China and India. The Chinese development bank is lowering their forecast and signaling further slowing in that Region. India is also showing signs of weakening. Is this enough to get us out of this trading range... I dont know. I hate saying I dont know, because it does not help you. What I can tell you....again, is that breakouts are the exception and you should not assume this will be one. This means the safe bet is to lock. If we fail to break out again, we will most likely turn down sharply and test the bottom.
