Weekly Market Commentary

Over the past week, treasuries were range bound with a high of 2.13% and a low of 2.06%. We reached the high on yield because of above consensus inflation data and weak treasury auction. Originators experienced high volumes of locks and are getting pushed beyond capacity in underwriting and process departments.

The coming week brings mid-tier releases, with the key economic data release this week is the retail sales report on Tuesday.
