  • MBS RECAP: Best Day of Gains Since Early Feb Stock Sell-Off

    Posted To: MBS Commentary

    Early in the month (Feb 5th), bonds had their best day of the year as they soaked up a mere fraction of the cash that was fleeing from equities markets and looking for a safe haven. There was no such rout in stocks today, but bonds managed to put in a rather respectable performance nonetheless. Granted, it was nowhere near the same scale as the Feb 5th rally, but it was the best day of the year apart from that. Early gains came courtesy of an ongoing rally in European bond markets. German Bunds are now back at yields not seen since late January . At that time, US 10yr yields were in the low 2.7s. The domestic session got a boost from NY Fed President Dudley, who not only refuted a just-released white paper labeling the Fed's bond buying as largely ineffective, but who also commented on...(read more)

    Posted To: Mortgage Rate Watch

    Mortgage rates fell again for the second straight day--something that has only happened a few other times so far this year. On an even brighter note, this was the first week of 2018 where the average lender ended the week offering rates that were at least as good as those seen at the end of the previous week. In most cases, today's rates are right in line with those seen last Friday. For the average lender, that means conventional 30yr fixed rates of 4.5 to 4.625% on top tier scenarios. The same scenarios were seeing quotes of 3.875-4.0% at the beginning of the year. As we discussed yesterday, "good days" for mortgage rates need some context at the moment. Yesterday was a good day too, but it happened to follow the worst day in more than 4 years (in terms of outright levels). In general, as...(read more)

  • Foreclosures, Inventories Move Higher as Hurricane Moratorium Ends

    Posted To: MND NewsWire

    The effects of last summer's hurricanes, while fading from their early impact on loan performance stats, are still being felt. Black Knight reports, in its "First Look" at January data, that past due mortgages nationwide declined by 8.6 percent or 210,000 loans when compared to December but are still 1.3 percent higher than in January 2017. The U.S. delinquency rate in January was 4.41 percent including all past due loans not yet in foreclosure. Hurricanes Harvey and Irma are blamed for 146,000 loans that remain delinquent in Texas and Florida. Of those, 132,000 are now seriously delinquent, that is 90 or more days past due Puerto Rico is not usually included in national delinquency statistics, but Black Knight says 57,000 loans remain delinquent in the territory because of Hurricane Maria...(read more)
