The November Trade Deficity declined to $34.3 Billion (far below the consensus of $40.0 Billion...and the lowest level since October, 2009). Janet Yellen was confirmed by the Senate last night to be the next President of the Federal Reserve. The Dow is currently up 125 basis points. There will be no further economic data released today.

Advice:
Treasuries were little changed, with three-year yields about one basis point from the lowest in two weeks, before the U.S. sells $30 billion of the notes today in the first of three sales of coupon-bearing debt this week. The extra yield that investors demand to hold 10-year notes instead of three-year debt climbed to the highest since 2011 last month as the Fed pledged to keep its benchmark interest rate low even as it started reducing bond purchases. The U.S. will auction $21 billion in 10-year securities tomorrow and $13 billion of 30-year bonds the following day. Janet Yellen won U.S. Senate confirmation to replace Ben S. Bernanke as Federal Reserve chairman. Bernanke and Yellen have been out saying they will be keeping rates low for quite a long while and also data has been disappointing slightly and thats been weighing on yields, said Niels From, chief analyst at Nordea Bank AB in Copenhagen. Theres potential for the curve to steepen, he said, referring to expectations shorter maturities will outperform. The three-year yield was at 0.75 percent as of 6:55 a.m. New York time after dropping to 0.74 percent on Jan. 3, the lowest level since Dec. 23. The price of the 0.625 percent note maturing in December 2016 was 99 5/8. The benchmark 10-year yield was at 2.96 percent after climbing to 3.05 percent on Jan. 2, the highest since July 2011. The spread between three- and 10-year yields was 220 basis points, or 2.20 percentage points. It reached 230 basis points on Dec. 6, the widest since July 2011.
 
My position on MBS
Short term Neutral.
Long term Short.

 

Market Commentary (Dan Rawitch)

The trade deficit narrowed more than expected. This will most likely cause a boost in the next GDP report, but for some reason, the market has actually rallied a bit on the news. It is worth noting that the decline in the trade deficit was based on some volitile and unsustainable factors, so the lift it does cause in GDP will be short lived.

 

Look for a test at the top of the range and then short of a weak employment report on Friday, a fall back to the bottom of the range.
