The market was doing just fine until the headlines broke the minutes of last month’s FOMC meeting (Fed Open Market Committee). The “Street” didn’t take kindly to comments regarding treasury asset sales, consideration of a .25 bps hike in the Discount Rate, and a general hawkish tone once they can determine that a recovery is “self sustaining”.

Concerns over the deficit and debt levels in Greece are once again in play, forcing European markets lower and then spilling over to stateside equity markets

The news rallied European bonds and has given a lift to treasuries and MBS, pushing the 10 year note above the 21 day moving average. If we can hold these levels, the chart will turn to neutral from bearish and should work its way into better mortgage pricing.

Much of Friday’s increase in yields was associated with perceptions of growing economic strength and possible impacts on inflation

What a difference a long weekend makes as the majority of sellers rode off into the sunset and have not returned to rule the day as they did on Friday. Selling late last week eliminated some bullish signals off our current trend that had been established earlier this month. The drop did however find some support at the 21-day moving average at 118-055, which is also where an up-sloping trend line off the August/September lows lies. The reaction to that area suggests that selling momentum is unlikely to immediately build on the shift away from the bullish camp. Much of Friday's increase in yields was associated with perceptions of growing economic strength and possible impacts on inflation.
