July 16th Mortgage Market Wrap-up 2

By
Mortgage and Lending with The Federal Savings Bank/Lending in 50 states NMLS # 109616

Mortgage backed securities (MBS) closed up  28 basis points today at 103.62 setting a new record yet again today.  The variancee in the closing level since Friday is due to the fact that we did switch over to the 3.0% coupon today.  If you remember Wall Street typically adds about 75 basis points to the pricing of bonds when they are securitized.  That represents their profit.  Therefore the 3.50% coupon was no longer reflective of market pricing.  The 30 year remained at 3.5% today.
