Key Economic News:


House prices, consumer confidence and the Richmond Fed index:


9:00: S&P/Case-Shiller home price index (August): Stable prices. Consensus points to a small increase in the seasonally adjusted Case-Shiller 20-city index during May. This would leave prices down 3.3% from a year earlier.

Consensus: +0.1%; Last +0.1%.


10:00: Conference Board confidence index (October): Small increase? Consensus is looking for a small increase in the index of consumer confidence, based partly on the rise in stock prices. Measures of consumer confidence in general show household sentiment steady at subdued levels.

Consensus: 46.0; Last: 45.4.


10:00: FHFA House Price Index (August): Another gain. This index—which tracks the purchase price of homes with agency-conforming mortgages—has risen in every month since March.

Consensus: +0.2%; Last +0.8%.


10:00: Richmond Fed survey (October): Tie breaker. The Philadelphia Fed index improved sharply this month but the Empire State index was about unchanged and still well below zero. The Richmond Fed index should help determine which is a better characterization of current manufacturing activity. In addition to a manufacturing index, the Richmond Fed survey contains a separate set of questions sent to firms in service-providing industries, which is one of the few direct measures of services activity in the monthly indicator cycle.

Consensus: Flat; Last -6.




Again all eyes will be on Europe, and with today’s news expected to come in close to last months numbers. I expect the market to hold the 101.000 mark.

My position on MBS stays neutral.

Here is the link to our daily video:

Lots of bond friendly news this morning.  Although bond friendly, it should not make you happy.  We need housing to bottom and we need consumers to feel great so they pay the bottomed out prices.

Instead, the housing numbers take another hit and consumer confidence dives as well.  Take a look at the chart, confidence is as low as it has been for at least 40 years (other than that lovely period of 08).

Like I’ve said, I would trade higher rates for a robust housing market and super excited consumers.
