A&D Market Digest for 4/11/22 – High rates, flat yield curves

Alex Suslov, Head of Capital Markets, and Billy Abrams, President/CEO of ADM Securities, discuss recent and upcoming trends happening in the capital markets and their impact on the Non-QM market. Check out their discussion.


  • MND — Mortgage Rates Surged to New Highs Before Recovering Moderately. “Mortgage rates jumped significantly higher this morning with the average conventional conforming 30yr fixed rate moving well over 5%. The most recent motivation for this upward momentum was yesterday’s speech from Fed Vice Chair Lael Brainard who warned of the need for the Fed to move more rapidly to reduce the size of its balance sheet (fancy words that mean the Fed will buy fewer bonds).”
  • MND — Mortgage Payment to Income Ratio Getting Into Pre-Meltdown Territory. “Black Knight’s latest Mortgage Monitor report was released this morning and it provided more timely insight on home price appreciation than last week’s home price indices (HPIs)  from FHFA and S&P Case-Shiller. The Mortgage Monitor’s price data covers February whereas the other HPIs were limited to January. We already know that mortgage rates moved higher at a fairly brisk pace in January, but it was either too little or too late to make a difference in February’s price appreciation. Black Knight recorded its highest year-over-year home price growth on record of 19.6%.”
