Treasuries rose, pushing 10-year note yields toward the lowest in more than a year, as a report showing U.S. retail sales were little changed in July added to signs the economic recovery is uneven. Benchmark 10-year notes were at the cheapest level in a week against their Group of Seven peers before the U.S. auctions $24 billion of the securities today. The extra yield the notes offer over their G-7 counterparts was 72 basis points, the most since Aug. 4, compared with as little as 37 basis points in February. Treasuries have advanced this month as tensions in Ukraine, Iraq and Gaza boosted demand for safer assets. The report is disappointing, said Tom Porcelli, chief U.S. economist in New York at Royal Bank of Canadas RBC Capital Markets unit, one of 22 primary dealers that trade with the Federal Reserve. Youre looking at a pretty sizable let-down following second-quarter growth numbers. This number suggests we have a lot of ground to make up. The U.S. 10-year yield fell one basis point, or 0.01 percentage point, to 2.44 percent at 8:42 a.m. New York time, according to Bloomberg Bond Trader data, after rising earlier to 2.47 percent. The slowdown in retail purchases followed a 0.2 percent advance in June, the Commerce Department reported today in Washington. The median forecast of 82 economists surveyed by Bloomberg called for a 0.2 percent gain. Excluding cars, sales rose 0.1 percent.
My position on MBS:
Short term changes to Long.
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)

Today retail sales missed expections. This combined with GEO political concerns...on top of declining Mortgage applications, provides more fuel for the bond rally. I believe we will test the top again, soon. This next test could provide a breakout, given our current environment. Remember...breakouts are the exception and not the norm...so be careful.
