Daily Market Report 8/8/19 Weekly Jobless Claims dropped from 217k the prior week to 209k last week.  The Job Market still shows some strength.  Wholesale Inventories had 0.0% growth from May to June.  Stocks rebounded late yesterday and continued this trend this morning.  China repositioned their currency just above 7, which is a little stronger than reports yesterday at just below 7.  A poor Auction result for the 10 year Treasury Auction led to a drastic pullback to both Yields and MBS yesterday.  MBS is currently down about 2bps, so Mortgage Rates remain unnchanged from yesterday's close; however, we did have a price change for the worse yesterday; so, we're a little higher than yesterday morning.  Yields have risen to 1.77%.
