Throw all the factors together and you can make a good case for the market and Austin mortgage pricing to stall unit early November’s elections and FOMC meeting

We see the set up as neutral, given a multitude of bearish divergences on one side and Fed Chief Bernanke and his dollar printing press on the other. Throw all the factors together and you can make a good case for the market and Austin mortgage pricing to stall unit early November’s elections and FOMC meeting.

Overall, this 30 year bond auction was not a dog but a pack of them

13 billion of 30 year bonds just hit the tape. Yield 3.852% with a whopping 3.2 bps tail. Indirect Bidders and Direct Bidders took 41% of the auction, leaving the street to mop up nearly 60%. Bid to cover stunk at 2.47 to 1. Overall, this was not a dog but a pack of them. Give it a D just because we hate to fail anybody. Bonds, notes, and mortgage backs are trading fast market conditions with the 10 year off ½ point and the bond down over 1 point. MBS now off 5 to 7/32’s.

Initial unemployment claims fell to 444k in the week ending May 8th, down from an upward revised 448k

This morning, bond prices are a touch higher following the weekly jobless claims data release. Initial unemployment claims fell to 444k in the week ending May 8th, down from an upward revised 448k. Economists had expected claims to drop from the previously reported 444k to 440k. Initial claims of 444k were a touch higher than estimates, but still a mere 5,000 above the year's low and at the bottom end of the range which has persisted throughout 2010.
