Very Restrained Bond Rally Considering The Data"s Implications
7/11/2024 3:42 PM
Very Restrained Bond Rally Considering The Data"s Implications Today"s CPI data was hotly anticipated, to say the least, and it did a borderline heroic job of advocating for a huge drop in rates.  Not only did the core M/M number drop to an unrounded 0.065 (implies core annual inflation UNDER 1.0%) but...Read More
CFPB Proposed Rule, Correspondent and Wholesale Products; CPI and Employment Driving Rates

I have good news and bad news, which do you normally prefer receiving first? Today (7/11) is Slurpee Day at 7-Eleven (good news), where Citigroup executives might want to head to cheer themselves up after the Federal Reserve Board on Wednesday fined Citigroup $60.6 million (bad news, at least for them) for violating the Board"s 2020 enforcement act...Read More
This is The Inflation Data You Were Hoping For
7/11/2024 9:47 AM
The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is the most important economic report for the bond market these days.  The most important line item in that report is month over month core CPI, which excludes food and energy.  That number was forecast to hit 0.2% but instead came in at 0.1, rounded up from 0.065.  That means if this report were r...Read More
No New Inspiration Ahead of Thursday"s CPI
7/10/2024 3:04 PM
No New Inspiration Ahead of Thursday"s CPI We"ve officially run out of ways to characterize the boring, sideways grind in the bond market that"s been intact since last Friday afternoon.  One would think that with Fed Chair testimony and a Treasury auction cycle that we"d at least some moderate volatili...Read More
Mortgage Rates Tick Back Below 7.0%, But Just Barely
7/10/2024 2:44 PM
Mortgage rates have been in a narrow range for more than a month now with the average top tier 30yr fixed rate staying within striking distance of the 7.0% mark for the entirety. The number was 7.01 yesterday and it"s down to 6.99 today.  This matches the level last seen on June 14th and you"d have to go back to March to see anything much lowe...Read More

“The only time I get asked for sex is on application forms.” Ba-dum-ching! Speaking of applications, most lenders will agree that the loan officer should be the first point of contact for a home buyer, not the real estate agent. But over the years real estate agents have done a great job of becoming the starting point of a homebuyer’s quest. But he...Read More
Another Sideways Start Meets Another Light Calendar
7/10/2024 10:07 AM
The most recent sideways slide began just before noon last Friday.  Bonds had rallied in response to the jobs report with 10"s closing at 4.29%.  Since then, there hasn"t been more than 4bps of movement in either direction, and the range has been even narrower 95% of the time.  Part of the reason is the absence of new inspiration.&nb...Read More
Higher Rates Suppress Mortgage Application Volume
7/10/2024 7:06 AM
Mortgage applications declined slightly on a seasonally adjusted basis last week but plummeted on an unadjusted basis during the July 4th week. The week’s results include an additional adjustment to account for the holiday. The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) said its Market Composite Index, a measure of mortgage loan application volume, decrea...Read More
MBS Outperform. Powell Punts. Waiting on CPI
7/9/2024 3:29 PM
MBS Outperform. Powell Punts. Waiting on CPI Bonds showed slightly more notable signs of life this morning when compared to yesterday, but yesterday was all but dead.  The volatility surrounded Fed Chair Powell"s congressional testimony but had more to do with what didn"t say as opposed to what he said...Read More
Mortgage Rates Barely Budge, But That Will Change Soon
7/9/2024 3:08 PM
Mortgage rates are based on movement in the bond market and bonds haven"t been moving much over the past 3 days.  That"s resulted in very little change in the average mortgage rate from one day to the next, and zero change today.   Bonds can be inspired by a number of events and data points.  In the past, scheduled congressiona...Read More
