    • MBS RECAP: Unofficial 3rd Day of The Weekend May 22, 2017
      Posted To: MBS CommentaryToday was super slow for bond markets with 10yr yields holding under the same ceiling that was in place on Friday (2.25+). At the same time, the lower yields of the day continually crept higher, making for an even narrower "consolidation range" compared to the one that began to take shape late […]
    • Low and Sideways, Mortgage Rates Play Waiting Game May 22, 2017
      Posted To: Mortgage Rate WatchMortgage rates were slightly higher for the 3rd straight day, continuing a modest bounce back from the year's lowest rates last Wednesday.

    • Wells and Freddie Team Up; Bank and CU News; What is Chase doing? May 19, 2017
      Posted To: Pipeline PressFor me this week included time in Salt Lake City, Columbus, Milwaukee, San Francisco, and Raleigh. (The mood is good as individuals continue to share best practices in an effort to lend to consumers in a compliant and cost-effective way – and that isn’t easy.) In some parts of the nation all […]
