The MCT Review: Market Commentary Week of March 7

The MCT Review: Market Commentary Week of March 7

FNCL 3.0s opened the day at 101-03, hit a high of 101-12+ just prior to 12 noon, and then we drifted lower in the afternoon to close at 101-04. We saw some intraday reprices for the better in the late morning and then some in the other direction later in the afternoon. We are now about 6 ticks lower vs. the Friday close of 101-04 but do not expect much from TBA hedge flows today. March issuance is about ~2.0bln behind the pace of February when you compare the first four business day of March to those of February. The big drop occurred in February and I would now expect the attrition to be a few billion/month.
