Daily Market Report 7/7/22  The Initial Jobless Claims rose by 4k from last week's number to 235k.  Also, the Continued Claims picked up a bit; and the Challenger Layoff (announced upcoming layoffs) spiked by almost 12k from last report.  Tomorrow will be the Jobs data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which will carry a bit of weight this week.  Investors will be watching fairly closely tomorrow, as there is a lot of concern of a possible recession.  Today, they're feeling a bit more optimistic, as investment dollars move over to equities.  As a result, MBS is currently Down 11bps, but was down by approximately 19bps.  Pricing for Mortgage Rates will be a little worse compared to yesterday's.  The good news is that the 25 DMA seems to be holding as a floor for us, which can bode well for Mortgage Rates.  Meanwhile, Yields jumped up to just under 3.01%.
