When the price of Mortgage Backed Securities (MBS) on the Chart above goes down Rates Go Up. Currently the price is going down. The Green Line or 25 day moving average was our friend and floor of support. Now is our enemy and the ceiling of resistance. The Black Line or 50 day moving average is now the floor of support. Notice on the candle how we touch this line only to be bounced higher. Today prices are lower from the better than expected July Housing Starts which is the highest it has been in 5 months and the second highest level since the recession. The housing starts figure is led by multi-family units.
