There’s an old LO joke, telling their client, “When you’re buying a house, be sure to do it with a significant other, and make sure that one of you has good credit. That’s why it’s called ‘significant’ other: sign-if-i-can’t.” Everyone in our biz knows that owning property is a great way to build wealth, although between elevated inflation, stubbor...Read More
More Defensive Today, But Who To Blame?
2/21/2024 11:29 AM
Bonds had a generally constructive day to start the holiday-shortened week yesterday, with yields rallying in the morning and ultimately holding modest gains after some afternoon weakness.  Today looked to be off to a similarly constructive start, but the selling pressure has shown up a bit earlier.  Who"s to blame? The easiest scapegoat ...Read More
Mortgage Applications Decline, Rates Back Over 7%
2/21/2024 7:43 AM
Higher interest rates continued to depress mortgage applications last week. The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) said its Market Composite Index, a measure of application volume, decreased 10.6 percent on a seasonally adjusted basis during the week ended February 16.

Slow Start as Markets Wait For Inspiration
2/20/2024 3:27 PM
Slow Start as Markets Wait For Inspiration Bonds got off to a slow start despite the holiday-shortened week.  Yields began in slightly higher territory in Asia, but rallied back to "unchanged" by the start of U.S. trading and to slightly stronger levels by the end of European trading.  The 2n...Read More
Mortgage Rates Modestly Lower To Start The Week
2/20/2024 3:18 PM
Most mortgage lenders set rates for the first time this week on Tuesday (today) due to yesterday"s holiday.  Federal holidays mean banks are closed which, in turn, means no activity in the part of the financial market that determines mortgage pricing.  Even though a majority of the U.S. financial system was closed yesterday, the rest of t...Read More

Two vultures are in a field, eating a dead clown. One vulture says to the other, "Does this taste funny to you?" The last thing you want to hear about your company is that it “preyed upon” customers, which is the opposite of funny. “Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time”: A federal court has issued an order banning the operators of the Home M...Read More
Holding Ground to Start New Week. Limited Data Apart From Fed Minutes
2/20/2024 9:20 AM
Bonds were moving with a clear purpose at the end of 2023 before embarking on a small, logical correction at the beginning of 2024.  In terms of 10yr yields, the case looked to be closed on the correction after defending a ceiling at 4.19%, but last week"s data stretched the range more than 10bps higher.  "Data dependence" reigns supreme ...Read More
Mortgage Rates Jump to New 2024 Highs After Another Report Shows Higher Inflation
2/16/2024 4:17 PM
At present, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) and the jobs report are the two most important considerations for interest rate momentum as far as economic reports are concerned, But it wasn"t always so.  For more than a decade leading up to 2022, (CPI) was not remotely as important because inflation ceased to be a major concern after 2010. Since ...Read More
Inflation Surprises Delay The Decision
2/16/2024 4:02 PM
Inflation Surprises Delay The Decision In the short term, it"s nice to see that today"s massively higher PPI reading didn"t do more than it did to crush the bond market"s spirit.  This isn"t the craziest turn of events given that we already had a bit of spirit crushing after Tuesday"s CPI, but that se...Read More
PPI Even Crazier Than CPI, But Bonds Are Less Bothered
2/16/2024 10:56 AM
If CPI is a 10 out of 10 on a scale of economic data that causes bond market volatility, PPI is never more than a 5.  It"s a good thing too.  All it took was a 0.1% deviation from expectations for CPI to send bond yields 15+ bps higher on Tuesday.  Contrast that to today"s PPI deviation of a whopping 0.4% (specifically, m/m core PPI ...Read More
