MBS RECAP: No Holiday Cheer for MBS


Excruciatingly low holiday volumes magnified the existing downtrend today, bringing MBS prices back to the lower-middle of their downwardly-sloped trading range from late October.  Viewed in that light (as a range-bound extension of a preexisting trend), there’s no drama and nothing interesting about today. 

It’s just a bit of a downer to traverse a good portion of the trading range in one day.  In defense of the sell-off, today’s data was pretty unfriendly.  This was more of a factor for Durable Goods at 8:30am as far fewer traders remained interested by 10am New Home Sales.
