Mortgage Backed Securities and Treasury Snapshot:
Mortgage Backed Security FNMA 3.5 started the day at 102.36 and the FNMA 4.0 coupon started the day at 103.50. The 10y Treasury yield started the day at the 2.04% level.
After bonds rallied significantly from May 2019 – June 2019 they reversed coursed and yields moved higher along with mortgage rates. Since early July the bond market appears to be establishing a range in which the lower end of that range is around 1.97% and the higher end of that range is around 2.15%.
It’s still too early to 100% confirm that bonds are in range and that could happen over the next few weeks. And if so this would not be the first time bonds have been range bound in 2019. Starting the first week in January until early March bonds were range bound and then moved significantly lower.
Will history repeat itself?
It all depends on what happens in the economy over the next 1-2 months. If the economy continues to slow down then there is the possibility that we could see another bond rally. However if economic conditions improve and/or the trade deal with China is resolved that will almost certainly push bond yields and mortgage rates higher.
