End of the day commentary:
Not much action again today in the Mortgage Bond market as prices drifted slightly lower. Today's better than expected ISM Service Index weighed on Bond prices, but a decline in Stocks couldn't lift prices.
The 3% Fannie Mae 30-yr coupon fell 9bp to end at 103.88. Stocks ended lower pressured by lower big bank shares due to the Deutsche Bank fallout.
The Dow lost 54.30 points to 18,253.85, the S&P 500 was down 7.07 points to 2,161.20, while the Nasdaq fell 11.12 points to end the session at 5,300.87. WTI oil closed at $48.81/barrel, +$0.57. 10-yr T Note yield 1.62%. There are no economic reports due for release tomorrow, but be mindful of the Jobs Report coming this Friday.
