Benchmark 10-year Treasury yields may tumble to a never-before-seen 1.25 percent as investors seek alternatives to lower interest rates around the world, according to Prudential Financial Inc. Treasuries rose on Wednesday as demand for the safest
assets was fed by a decline in stocks and oil, as well as renewed investor concern about China. While the yield on 10-year Treasuries was less than half a percentage point from its record low reached in 2012, the securities offered a yield pick-up of
160 basis points over similar-maturity German bonds and about 188 basis points over Japanese government debt. Were going to be low and range-bound, said Robert Tipp, the head of global bonds and foreign exchange for the fixed-income divisionof Prudential, the second-largest U.S. life insurer. This is an extremely low-interest-rate world. The higher-yielding products are going to be dominating, he said on Bloomberg Television. Ten-year yields will be in a range of 1.5 percent to 2
percent for most of the remainder of 2016, said Tipp, who is based in Newark, New Jersey. A decline to 1.25 percent would be the bottom end of the range, he said, breaking the previous low of 1.379 percent set in 2012. The yield was 1.75 percent
Wednesday. Pacific Investment Management Co. saidit likes Treasuries compared with lower-yielding AAA sovereign bonds. Germanys 10-year bond, which carries the top rating, yields 0.16 percent. In Japan, which has a lower rank, the 40-year yield dropped to a record 0.3 percent.

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
