Current Trend Direction: Sideways beneath resistance

Advise Your Clients: Locking

Current Price of FNMA 3.5% Bond: $103.44, Unchanged

Mortgage Bonds trade near unchanged and remain below resistance as the month of November comes to an end.

The week's economic calendar is packed with a slew of important economic reports culminating with the November Jobs Report on Friday, where it is expected that employers added 196K new workers.  If this week's Non-farm Payrolls report reveals employment growth remains solid, a Fed Rate hike in December will be highly likely.

There are no T Note or Bond auctions this week.  Later this morning, October Pending Home Sales and November Chicago PMI will be released. 

Clients should be advised to lock as prices remain in a tight sideways range, but beneath resistance.  Should prices break above this resistance and step higher, we will be more bullish and will adjust our stance accordingly.
