The big news at the end of last week was Trump’s decision to veto the covid relief/spending bill. After he signed it last night, overnight markets began pointing toward higher rates. 10yr yields were roughly 3bps higher to start the day, but it was all downhill from there (in a good way). MBS led the charge early. Treasuries ultimately broke even, with more buyers showing up after the 5yr Treasury auction.
Market Movement Recap
Bonds weaker and stocks stronger overnight following the signing of the stimulus/spending bill. 10yr rose about 3bps and 1.5 UMBS are starting the day down just over an eighth of a point.
Treasuries have been flat to slightly lower in yield, but still up almost 3bps on the day. MBS are outperforming with 1.5 coupons just turning positive on the day. No specific market movers behind the strength.
Additional gains after 5yr Treasury auction. Notably, the auction was weaker than expected, but bonds improved anyway. This suggests traders are anxious to get past this week’s Treasury supply. 10yr yields are now within 1bp of ‘unchanged’ and MBS have added another tick (0.03).
