This Weekin Review


The Treasury market has definitely taken a ‘breather’ this past week as we see 10yr yields retreating up toward the 1.60% handle. As global markets have posted some stronger rallies, combined with some stronger economic data, we see the bond market experiencing some consolidation. We don’t think the rally in Treasuries is over by any means, but with levels hitting all-time lows in 10s in the prior week, the market was overbought and needed some air.

Technically, our bias is leaning toward the bears in the short-term until we see some relief. Support levels to watch for on the 10yr will be 1.59%, then 1.65% as we head into the new week. A break back below 1.45% is needed to really shift the trend back to lower rates and a further rally in mortgage pricing.
