  • MBS RECAP: Another One of Those Unofficial 3-Day Weekend Days

    Posted To: MBS Commentary

    These sorts of days (where nothing happens) happen. If you had to bet on a day of the week and a time of year to see them, Summertime Mondays would probably be the safest bet. Overnight volume was almost nonexistent, with much of Asia closed. Domestic volume and volatility was effectively nil with today's trading range falling easily inside Friday's. On a positive note, despite the low volume, any day where bonds begin a new week holding onto gains from the end of the previous week is better than nothing.

"Relaxation," in this context, means we're not likely to see evidence of either this week. Loan Originator Perspective Bonds coasted through a flat session Monday as rates hovered near unchanged. There's scant meaningful data this week to inform markets, I'll be surprised to see much movement...(read more)

  • Builder Confidence: Tariffs on Lumber Hurting Affordability

    Posted To: MND NewsWire

    Builder confidence in the market for new single-family homes ended a three-month slide in May , as the Housing Market Index ticked up two points. This month that two-point gain evaporated as the index slid back down to 68. The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) said the retreat of the measure, which it sponsors in conjunction with Wells Fargo, in June was, in large part, due to elevated lumber prices. "Builders are optimistic about housing market conditions as consumer demand continues to grow," said NAHB Chairman Randy Noel. "However, builders are increasingly concerned that tariffs placed on Canadian lumber and other imported products are hurting housing affordability . Record-high lumber prices have added nearly $9,000 to the price of a new single-family home since January 2017...(read more)
