It is a quiet day in the mortgage market.

News from the Labor Department showing the number of Americans standing in line to file first-time claims for government jobless benefits fell by 8,000 to 207,000 its lowest level since 1969. The data caused a little sag in the price of mortgage-backed securities early in the morning before buyers showed up and pushed it back a touch higher.

The tug-of-war between buyers and sellers in the credit market continues with neither party finding a meaningful advantage over the other. The result is that note rates on 30-year conforming mortgages have bounced around in a four (4) basis point range for the past 17 business days.

There is historical precedent that suggests tugs-of-war like we are now experiencing tend to end in dramatic fashion with the onset of a significant trend change in the direction of the winner.

The competition is heating up every day, and the contest is still very much undecided -- but all it takes is one economic headline or one event to provide one or the other camp of investors with a deciding advantage over the other.

The moral of the story is -- dont get complacent. While it is certainly nice to have limited market volatility like we are now experiencing it is not typically the norm.
