The markets are a bit quite today and there is no scheduled news. Good corporate earnings from Caterpillar and others, are giving the Dow some lift and putting some pressure on bonds.
Bonds have actually held quite nicely, in spite of some wildly positive moves in the equity markets. I wonder how long that can last?
At the moment, we sit atop a critical level of support for the MBS 3.5% coupon, as we all wait to see what happens on Wednesday in Europe.
Be careful right here.
