CMO Market Update
September 24, 2018
We hosted two webinars last week so please see information on them down below. Activity was steady and picked up later in the week characterized by similar investment patterns we have discussed of late. Front sequentials with slight premiums along with VADMs continue to remain popular. See a comparison below from our recent webinars where we compare and contrast a discount and premium structure on the exact same collateral. Of note, both yield and spread are greater on the premium structure, it has a lower price volatility, and the give up (if rates decline) is manageable. Next week, we have our September Trade Summary Analytics on tap.
