First thing’s first: if you haven’t seen the adverse market fee make it back onto rate sheets yet, that makes locking a no-brainer. If you have, then we can move on to considering the impact from the Fed Announcement. Today’s video discusses the relevant considerations in detail.

Market Movement Recap
Bonds were unchanged to start the overnight session but lost ground modestly during European hours. Stocks are up almost another 1%, but the bond weakness doesn’t look too correlated with that. 10yr up half a bp at .68%. UMBS 2.0 opening down 1 tick (-0.03) at 103-01 (103.03).
Intensely uneventful trading session as bonds drift sideways ahead of tomorrow’s Fed announcement. No change from the last update in MBS. Treasury yields are a hair lower but still slightly higher on the day.
Stick a fork in the bond market. If we didn’t see any appreciable volatility at the 3pm CME close, “it’s done” for the day. All eyes on the Fed tomorrow, with a slight chance of some volatility with the morning’s econ data (Retail Sales).
