10:32 AM

MBS have bounced back nicely after opening slightly weaker.  Both Treasuries and MBS improved at 8:30, but MBS have kept the good times rolling, now up nearly a quarter of a point.

02:12 PM

MBS prices have come off the boil from mid-day highs.  2.0 coupons are down nearly an eighth from those highs at 102-29 (102.91).  They were briefly as high as 103.  10yr yields are holding sideways in slightly stronger territory despite stocks up more than half a percent.
