Yield spreads for new-issue hybrid ARMs to Treasuries held firm for last week, while fixed-rate MBS experienced a modest tightening in response to the broader bond market rally and flattening yield curve. We continue to see strong demand for new issue 7/1s and 10/1s. These structures compare favorably to 15-year fixed-rate MBS on an OAS basis and have less duration. Finally, the pace of seasoned selling has remained subdued compared to the heavy selling of March.
