Stocks and Mortgage Backed Securities are moving in lock step

Just a heads up as both stocks and MBS are moving in lock step.  After stocks dropped from plus 160 to up 70, MBS rallied back to unchanged or plus 1/32nd on the day.  Since then, stocks reversed course and rallied to post a plus 212 on the Dow.  At the same time MBS were off 5/32’s (almost plugged the trigger on a worsening price change).  Stocks are currently up 160 and MBS down2/32’s.  My point here is that the market is a cougar and we are her cubs.  Don’t get eaten.  If you want to follow the trade, watch stocks as bonds are trading in an inverse relationship.
