Chuck Berry said Rollover Beethoven. When the mortgage backed securities have a rollover this has no effect on rates, but it does make the chart look a little different. Mortgage Bonds had their monthly coupon rollover after the close of trading yesterday, meaning this month's coupon is closed out and all new loans are placed into next month's coupon. While the effect of this rollover was -22bp for the Fannie Mae 30-year 3% coupon, rate sheets or pricing will not be impacted..
With big losses incurred over the past few days the 3% Fannie Mae 30 yr Coupon has lost over 300 basis points since the end of September. Hopefully we will see some movement in the other direction as the market settles down in the post Trump election era. The only thing that we will not expect is boredom. Below is how the market ended the day
VOLATILITY remained in the MBS markets today as they opened lower, traded to near unchanged levels, only to decline by day's end. The 3% Fannie Mae 30-yr coupon closed at 101.09, -50bp and is down over 300bp since the September 22 high of 104.22. Stocks had a rather mixed session with the Dow up big, the S&P modestly higher, while the Nasdaq closed lower. Tech Stocks fell, while banks and industrials rose as investors rearranged bets to benefit from a Donald Trump presidency. The Dow gained 218.19 points to end at an all-time closing high of 18,807.88, the S&P 500 closed at 2,167.48, +4.22 points, while the tech heavy Nasdaq closed down 42.27 points to end at 5,208.79. WTI oil closed at $44.66/barrel, -$0.61. 10-yr T Note yield 2.14%. The Bond markets are closed tomorrow in observance of Veterans Day.
