Along with the Friday after Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve is typically the lightest trading day of the year.  Today was no exception with both volume and volatility at a minimum.  MBS mostly held inside a 1 tick (0.03) range, which is about as narrow as it gets.  All this despite Trump’s veto of the defense spending bill raising the possibility of a shutdown on Monday and the Brexit trade deal finally being confirmed.  

Market Movement Recap

08:52 AM

Sideways overnight in extremely low volume and light trading.  Nothing to be gleaned unless the level of activity changes drastically.  10yr yields down less than a bp and MBS up 1 tick (0.03).

12:19 PM

This will be the last movement update of the day unless something impressive happens.  Bonds have been almost perfectly flat and lifeless all day.
