Bonds Suffer as Stocks Record Small Gains

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

Equity markets here returned to their post election persuasion today as all three major U.S. exchanges showed moderate gains.  Strong earnings from the banking sector buoyed stocks and cost U.S. Treasuries and MBS bonds to fall in an increasing fashion as the trading day progressed.  The MBS bonds are in a precarious position as they have fallen down nearly to last ditch support offered at the 103.00 level.  Should they fall through that level, interest rates are likely in for another bump upward.  The Dow closed up 35 points today.

Good to see small gains...they are more sustainable over the long haul
