    When global financial markets are convulsing with uncertainty and anticipation, where can you find a safe, liquid place to park your money? One of the best, and most frequently repeated answers to that question today was: US Treasuries. 5yr Notes were the biggest winner, but 10yr Notes weren't far behind, rallying nearly 15bps . As is normally the case during massive flights-to-safety, MBS...

    Mortgage rates continued relentlessly lower today, but they did so under protest. In fact, the amount of improvement on some lenders' rate sheets relative to the amount of improvement seen in Mortgage-Backed-Securities (MBS, which dictate mortgage rate levels more than anything else) is downright apalling. Moving one more degree of separation toward the epicenter of today's market drama and we...

    The following is an excerpt from of an update that appeared this morning on MBS Live. Members will have already seen it. All About the Franc, 'Bout the Franc, Not Data If there's one reason that bond markets are in positive territory today, it's the overnight shocker out of Europe. Reuters can tell you about it better than I can: Swiss central bank shocks markets with currency '...

    Applications for mortgages to purchase newly constructed homes dipped slightly in December, down 0.4 percent from the volume reported in November. This estimate from the Mortgage Bankers Association, based on data from its Builder Application Survey, does not include adjustments to account for seasonal patterns. Applications for conventional loans made up 70.8 percent of the total followed by FHA loans at 15.3...

    Cash sales dropped on a year-over-year basis for the 22 nd consecutive month in October and CoreLogic is projecting they will return to their pre-crisis levels by 2017. All-cash transactions represented a slightly higher share of transactions in October than in September, 35.5 percent versus 35.0 percent, but the company said the relative share of those sales typically rises during the fall and winter months....

    Have some spare doubloons sitting in your bank account, and want to put them to work? You could buy a Japanese 10-yr note and earn about .25% per year, a German 10-year and earn .5% a year, or a US 10-year risk free T-note and earn about 1.84%. But what about equities? Coincidentally both Wells and Chase pay a dividend of 2.70%, Proctor & Gamble 2.90%; Exxon pays 3.00%, AT&...

    Yesterday was the most exciting day in bond markets in a long time. 10yr yields made it into the 1.7's, which had an altogether different feel than the 1.8's. Reason being: we hit 1.8's quickly and effectively in October, so revisiting them on Tuesday wasn't nearly as meaningful. Not only did Treasuries get a big dose of nostalgia, but MBS similarly surpassed October's highs...
