MBS

March 31st, 2009 9:32 am | by John Jansen |

Mortgages are opening 1 to 1 1/2 ticks tighter to swaps.

One dealer reports that the Federal Reserve was an active buyer late yesterday and that dealer believes the early strength this morning is reflective of dealers covering those sales of late yesterday.

Originators have been selling and money managers have been buyers for now.

    John,

    Is the dealer selling of mortgage paper to the fed coming from inventory or is some of it trading positions hedged with Treasuries, therefore causing treasury purchases?
