  • MBS RECAP: Strong and Stable all Day

    Posted To: MBS Commentary

    It was a refreshingly strong day for MBS and Treasuries. While the gains weren't immense by any standard, they were mostly present from the start of the day and never looked to be under dire threat. Weak economic data helped get things going in the morning, though it was a bit of a mixed blessing for MBS watchers as the data in question was close to home (weak New Home Sales). The 5yr Treasury auction in the afternoon was lackluster at best--certainly not in the same league as the previous two examples from the Feb-April trend, though it did compare favorably with some older examples. Beyond that, volume and participation picked up a bit, and there was a sense that financial markets were getting back to business after an extended holiday. In the bigger picture, today's strength acted...(read more)

  • Mortgage Rates Erase 2 Days of Weakness

    Posted To: Mortgage Rate Watch

    Mortgage rates moved lower at a healthy pace today, more than erasing the past two days of weakness, but leaving most of last Thursday's weakness intact. Some of the gains were attributable to today's much weaker than expected reading on New Home Sales earlier this morning. Downbeat economic data is typically positive for bond markets which results in lower rates. Today's strength is enough to bring the most prevalently quoted conforming 30yr fixed rate for best-case scenarios ( best-execution ) back down to 4.375% in many cases, though 4.5% remains a nearly equal contender. When adjusted for day-to-day changes in closing costs, today's rates are 0.06% lower. Today's strength runs counter to the recent trend. Most of the time in 2014, when rates have risen from 4.25%, they've proceeded to 4...(read more)

  • California Pending Sales Surge; Short Sales Lowest since 2008

    Posted To: MND NewsWire

    California appears to be gearing up for a strong spring market according to pending home sales figures released today by the California Association of Realtors® (C.A.R.). The group reports that, based on contracts for home purchases, pending sales jumped 17.8 percent in March and were at the highest level in eight months. C.A.R's Pending Home Sales Index (PHSI) rose from 97.1 in February to 114.4 in March. Despite the sharp monthly increase, the PHSI was still well below the revised index of 126.9 for March 2013. The PHSI is a forward-looking indicator that provides information on the future direction of home sales. Pending sales are generally expected to close within 60 to 90 days. The share of equity sales continued to rise steadily in March as it has for the last year. Equity or non...(read more)

  • Housing Market Improving at Slower Pace, but There's a Catch

    Posted To: MND NewsWire

    The February edition of the new Multi-Indicator Market Index (MiMi) introduced by Freddie Mac last month indicates that the U.S. housing market overall is recovering at a slightly slower pace than it was in January. Nonetheless, the report shows that more than half of both the states and the top 50 metropolitan areas are still improving. MiMi uses proprietary Freddie Mac data and information on local markets to assess where each market currently is in relation to its own long-term stable range for home purchase applications, payment-to-income ratios (which allows measurement of changes in home purchasing power), proportion of on-time mortgage payments, and the local employment picture. And that's the catch : an index that ostensibly speaks to "the housing market" is currently drawing strength...(read more)

  • Home Sales Tank; Inventories and Prices Surge

    Posted To: MND NewsWire

    New homes sales in March were down 14.5 percent from sales in February to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 384,000. The New Residential Sales report issued today by the U.S. Census Bureau and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development February revised February sales numbers to 449,000 from the original report of 411,000. March 2014 sales were 13.3 percent lower than the estimated 443,000 new home sales in March 2013. On a non-seasonally adjusted basis an estimated 36,000 new homes were sold in March compared to 37,000 in February and 41,000 in March 2013. Sales in all four regions were also lower than a year earlier and only the Northeast saw an improvement on a monthly basis, with sales rising 12.5 percent from February. Annual sales fell 22.9 percent in that region. Sales in...(read more)

  • MBS MID-DAY: Bond Markets Stronger After New Home Sales Data

    Posted To: MBS Commentary

    Even before this morning's economic data, bond markets were already in slightly stronger territory. The data itself only helped, though it's a double-edged sword for the Housing Market. New Home Sales hit a 9 month low, falling to a 384k unit annual pace versus a 450k forecast and 449k previous reading. Treasuries and MBS ratcheted to their best levels of the day after the data, and extended gains further after the Fed's daily buying operation in 10yr Treasuries. Fannie 4.0s were up as much as a quarter of a point, but the rally has moderated somewhat ahead of the 1pm Treasury Auction of 5yr Notes. MBS Pricing Snapshot Pricing shown below is delayed, please note the timestamp at the bottom. Real time pricing is available via MBS Live. MBS FNMA 3.0 97-02 : +0-10 FNMA 3.5 101-03 ...(read more)

  • Number of Banks is Declining; New Interest in Condo Loans; Existing Home Sales Numbers Dissected

    Posted To: Pipeline Press

    A few weeks ago I wrote about the "over 65ers", the age demographic which is very much a part of the baby-boom generation. Recently the U.S. Census Bureau released " The Centenarian Population: 2007-2011 ," which focuses on those who have reached a milestone many of us won't get to in life: 100 years of age. It's an interesting demographic , maybe one which gets overlooked considering only 55,000 Americans fall into this group (versus, say, 90 million Millennials aged 18-34). In job news, TruHome Solutions , LLC is seeking a Vice President of Servicing to join its Leadership team as part of its long-range plan to increase its servicing portfolio. TruHome services over $3 billion for its clients as both a servicer and a sub-servicer, and has plans to significantly grow the servicing portfolio...(read more)

  • Mortgage Apps Decline; Loan Amounts hit Record High

    Posted To: MND NewsWire

    The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) said the average size of a purchase mortgage loan reported by respondents to its most recent Weekly Mortgage Applications was $280,500, the highest in the history of the survey . MBA said this coincides with the trend in rising purchase activity for larger loan amounts. MBA's Market Composite Index, a measure of loan application volume, was down 3.3 percent on a seasonally adjusted basis during the week ended April 18 compared to the previous week during which the composite saw its first increase since late February. On a seasonally unadjusted basis the Composite was down 3.0 percent. The Refinancing Index fell 4 percent and the market share of refinancing applications dropped to 51 percent of applications, down from 52 percent during the week ended April...(read more)

  • MBS Day Ahead: Aimless Week, Downbeat Home Sales Forecast, and Technical Silver Lining

    Posted To: MBS Commentary

    The first two days back from the extended weekend have been surprisingly uneventful, and that's saying something considering they were already likely to be fairly quiet. There hasn't been much by way of potential market movers so far and if yesterday's Existing Home Sales data had a chance, it blew it by coming in right on top of forecasts and with negligible revisions. Today brings the government version with the New Home Sales set for 10am and expected to come in at similarly tepid levels. The only other potential market mover on the calendar is the afternoon's 5yr Treasury Auction at 1pm. Unlike yesterday's 2yr auction, this one is more relevant to the area of the yield curve that speaks to MBS. Moreover, 5's are the 2nd most traded Treasuries next to 10's, so...(read more)

  • MBS RECAP: Bond Markets Trickle Back to Positive Territory

    Posted To: MBS Commentary

    The overarching caveat for any assessment of today's market activity is that the whole thing occurred in a relatively tight range. Sustained highs and lows were in a 4/32nds range in MBS and just over 2bps in 10yr yields. There was little, if any reaction to this morning's economic data or the 2-yr Treasury auction. The biggest movement of the day was completely disconnected from anything overtly observable, including the stock lever. Earlier this morning, it looked as though bonds and stocks might try to reconnect as selling pressure in bonds after 9am gave way to a stronger open for stocks. We were later forced to abandon that consideration as bonds rallied moderately into the noon hour despite an ongoing advance in stocks. The bond market action began looking more like the serendipitous...(read more)
