Yesterday's Interest Rate Market RecapYesterday the MBS (Mortgage Backed Securities) market lost -3 basis points, but that doesn't show the volatility of the day. We had a high of 100.06 basis points, and the timing was right around when many lenders come out with pricing. That means the lenders had likely improved rates or rebate pricing based on that market improvement. In the middle of the day we saw MBS have a huge sell off, to a low of 99.64, a swing of 42 basis points. Most lenders that priced in the day's early gains would have repriced for the worse during that sell off. We rebounded slightly to end the day only down -3 basis points, but we saw rate and rebate affecting movement through the day, highlighting why it is so important to have access to real time MBS movement and receive market alerts and breaking news to stay ahead of lender reprices.
