    Admittedly there are far more than 2 reasons for anything in financial markets to do anything. But when it comes to "the why" behind the ability of Treasuries and MBS to continue adding to improvements despite last week's NFP (data that would historically set a negative trend for the entire month), look no further than Europe. I posted this chart earlier today as well, but...

    Mortgage rates fell again today, bringing them very close to their lowest levels in more than a year and a half. US bond markets (including Treasuries and mortgage-backed-securities) continue taking cues from European bond markets where the benchmark 10yr yield just fell to a new record low. While US Treasuries benefit more than mortgages, there was still enough of a spillover effect to push...

    While the dream of homeownership has been sidelined for many, it appears to have not been derailed. Freddie Mac says the responses of renters to a recent survey it conducted shows that many are struggling financially but they still hope to buy a home. Eventually. Freddie Mac surveyed 2,044 adults in August. The total included 672 and the report issued by the company this week relies primarily on the perceptions...

    Credit access increased in November, again primarily because of new jumbo loan products. The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) said its Mortgage Credit Availability (MCAI) Index rose 1.2 percent to 114.6. A decline in the MCAI indicates that lending standards are tightening, while increases in the index are indicative of a loosening of credit. "Credit availability increased in November, largely due to the...

    It's not that China isn't an important cog in the global economy, but the tendency for major media outlets to focus on it as some sort of central market mover is hopelessly overblown at best. As you may have seen (or as you may have deduced from what I'm writing right now), there's more than a little bit of this overfocus on China in the news this morning. The easiest way to...

    No one wants to see their companies and future employment batted around in the press, but perhaps our brethren and Freddie and Fannie are accustomed to it by now. Michael Stegman, the Treasury Department's top housing policy official, said the responsibility lies with Congress to end government conservatorship of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac . "The only way to responsibly end the...

    Yesterday morning, we were hoping that bond markets would find near-term technical support from Friday's weakest levels. Today, we're hoping for a different kind of support--also seen yesterday. The technical bounce at 2.33 in 10yr yields was made possible by a strong rally in European bond markets and further stoked by the flames of the steepest day of stock losses in over a month. With...
