MBS RECAP: Stronger Selling and Lighter Volume Raise Doubts
10/18/2017 3:58 PM

MBS Day Ahead: Time For That Mid-October Craziness in Bonds
10/18/2017 8:43 AM
Posted To: MBS CommentaryAh mid-October... All too often in the 2009-2014 time frame, we'd seen abrupt reversals of trends at this time of month.
