We’ve been following .58% in 10yr yields for months as the best candidate for the bottom of “the range.”  Now that mortgage rates have largely settled relative to Treasuries, the .58% floor, until and unless we see yields move below .58% and remain in stronger territory, it suggests bonds and mortgage rates may take some time to consolidate or even correct toward slightly higher levels before doing whatever they’re going to do next.

Market Movement Recap

No reaction to data (or anything else for that matter).  Bonds remains sideways to slightly weaker.  10yr yields are up .7bps at .584. UMBS 2.0 coupons are down 1 ticks (0.03) at 102-28 (102.875).
