    Trading levels began the day in better territory this morning after a strong overnight session for Treasuries. It wasn't so much that they gained an especially large amount, but rather that they defied the input from related markets that have been consistently performing better. The clearest example would be German Bunds (the benchmark for the European bond market). They sold-off in a big way...

    Mortgage rates were mixed today depending on the lender, but moved just slightly lower on average. This wasn't the case this morning as essentially all lenders came out with noticeably lower rates following the weaker-than-expected Retail Sales report. As the day progressed, early gains in bond markets faded, especially after the afternoon's 30yr Bond auction. While that refers to 30yr Treasuries...

    Freddie Mac's economists restated their February forecast in their Economic and Housing Outlook just released for March, that 2015 could be the best year for home sales and new home construction since 2007. That year there were 5.8 million sales - this year the economist forecast 5.6 million sales along with 1.18 million housing starts.

    It's been a mostly good morning for bond markets. The overnight session saw modest gains during European hours, and Treasuries even managed to hold those gains while European bonds sold-off.

The outperformance probably would have faded in the domestic session if not for the exceptionally weak Retail...

    Applications for mortgages to purchase newly constructed homes jumped significantly in February the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) said today. Data from MBA's Builder Application Survey, which is not seasonally adjusted, was up 12 percent compared to January numbers. "An increase in mortgage applications to builders in February over strong January numbers bodes well for new home purchases this year," said...

    Charles Dickens walks into a bar and asks for a martini. The bartender asks, "Olive or twist?" Some things have a clever twist, others not so much - and it is becoming increasingly hard to argue that values are not improving. Kroll Bond Rating Agency published a new research report titled "U.S. Real Estate Prices Show Signs of Rising Again." Highlights of the report include single...

    There have been no significant instances of economic data this week until today. These sorts of things happen, and it's usually Thursday that ends up breaking the dry spell. That's only really a guarantee based on the steady weekly presence of Jobless Claims, but that's pretty boring data these days. We already know that things are humming right along in terms of payrolls and other...
