http://MikesDailyMarketReport.com: The CPI rose 0.4% in September, while it's YoY rose to 5.4% (from 5.3% in August). However, if you exclude food and energy, then you will see the Core CPI rose only 0.2% in September, while it's YoY remained unchanged at 4.0%. Obviously, we see it at the gas pumps and grocery stores that these prices are continuing to rise substantially. Stocks are trading in Positive Territory today as the Core CPI came in a bit tame and investors look to the FOMC Minutes being released. MBS had a rollover, so the Chart may look misaligned, but it's essentially a reset in pricing and Mortgage Rates are unaffected. Currently, MBS is Up 13bps, which is also being propped up a bit after a good 30 year Auction. Yesterday, the Market finished Up 11bps; so, we're seeing a positive trend over the past 2 days of trading for MBS. Mortgage Rates have improved some from yesterday. Also, Yields are making their way lower, as it is testing it's Technical floor. It's currently at 1.55%.
