  • MBS RECAP: Bonds Ignore Stocks to Hold Steady on The Week

    Posted To: MBS Commentary

    10yr yields ended the week at almost exactly where they began. With the exception of Tuesday, bonds closed within 1.5bps of each other on the other 4 days this week. Tuesday was only 2bps higher and gave way to an overnight rally that restored the range anyway! Long story short, for all the hullabaloo about Turkey/China/Etc. it was a really quiet week. Part of the issue is that Turkish shockwaves had their fun last week, but even then, it's not as if bonds are making big moves in the bigger picture. If bonds aren't moving, perhaps we can find something interesting to say about something that IS moving and that usually has an effect on bonds. Granted, I'll be the first to point out that the stock market should never be seen as a bond market indicator, but if we want to keep track...(read more)

    Posted To: Mortgage Rate Watch

    Mortgage rates were almost perfectly unchanged today. That leaves them right in line with last Friday's levels. I devoted a considerable number of words in yesterday's article to explaining why most other articles about mortgage rates were inaccurate yesterday. Suffice it to say that the absence of change compared to last Friday fully drives home the point I was making. In short, due to the primary source data that most news organizations use for their big mortgage story each week, the average article proclaimed a nice drop in rates. In actuality, that drop happened at the end of last week. From there, rates have barely budged. These rates aren't the worst we've seen and they're not the best. They're pretty comparable to most of the past few months. You'd have to go back to May 2018 to see...(read more)

  • Fannie Mae Research: Housing, What a Drag?

    Posted To: MND NewsWire

    Fannie Mae's monthly Economic Development papers always have the best headlines, pithy and to the point. The August one reads. "Growth Picks Up as Expected, No Thanks to Housing." Sort of says it all. The company's Economic and Strategic Research (ESR) Team is upgrading its estimate of third quarter growth based on the acceleration of headline economic growth in the second quarter. Consumer spending and net exports drove the action although business inventories declined and dragged on growth. So too did residential investment, which had a negative impact for the fourth time in five quarters, subtracting 0.04 percentage point from the GDP. The residential investment component includes homebuilding, renovations, and brokerage commissions. Home building was lackluster, posting the largest monthly...(read more)
