Key Economic News:



Companies added 170,000 workers to their payrolls in January, according to data today from Roseland, New Jersey-based ADP Employer Services.  ADP’s initial figures for December showed a rise of 325,000, while the Labor Department’s data the next day showed an increase of 212,000 in private payrolls.

January Report: 170,000, Consensus 182,000.


ISM Index


Construction Spending


Treasury announcing the size of next week's 3, 10, and 30-yr auctions
(estimated unchanged at $72 billion).




With ADP coming in just under consensus and the continuing problems in Europe. I would expect the market to hold the 103.625 – 103.875 range, unless we get an upset from ISM or Construction spending.


My position on MBS stays long.

Mixed news...and talk of a deal in Greece is causing confusion in the bond Market.  10 year has been under pressure but MBS have turned positive.  I still see short term exposure down to 103.40.  Much lower if Greece really can pull something out of their hat.
