MCT Releases Custom TBA Indications to Provide Price Discovery for Illiquid Coupons

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- Mortgage Capital Trading, Inc. (MCT®), the de facto leader in innovative mortgage capital markets technology, today announced the release of pricing indications for the to-be-announced mortgage-backed securities (TBAs) used by mortgage lenders to hedge their open mortgage pipelines. TBA indications improve transparency in illiquid market segments and act as a key reference point on lenders' unique executions - critical data for generating accurate front-end borrower pricing.

"TBA indications can now be electronically requested ad hoc by mortgage lenders from multiple approved broker-dealers," said Phil Rasori, COO at MCT. "For the first time, lenders have a custom reference point to their own TBA execution rather than working solely from market-wide pricing that may not be applicable to them."

TBAs are the forward contracts on mortgage-backed securities used across the industry to hedge open mortgage pipelines against changes in interest rates during the origination process. With this latest development, MCT clients are able to make timely, on-demand pricing indication requests for specific coupons in the TBA market. This new price discovery is a significant benefit to mortgage lenders, since traditionally only the most liquid coupons are visible on standard market pricing reference tools.

"I needed pricing visibility on the GNMA 7.5% coupon, but there was no screen pricing available," said Nick LaClair, Pricing Strategy and Analytics Manager, AVP at Embrace Home Loans. "Being able to electronically request and receive these indications enabled me to navigate the illiquid segments of the market and produce more accurate pricing, allowing us to offer more pricing options to our customers in a very challenging environment."

MCT is proud to offer this new pricing service that is made possible through a technology licensing arrangement with leading fintech Agile Trading Technologies. Agile operates a request for quote (RFQ) platform that connects mortgage lenders with broker-dealers of all sizes.

ACES Quality Management Releases Call Monitoring Audit Pack to Enhance Mortgage Quality Control and Compliance Programs

DENVER, Colo. -- ACES Quality Management® (ACES), the leading provider of enterprise quality management and control software for the financial services industry, has announced its newest product offering, ACES Call Monitoring Audit Pack. The pre-built, configurable Call Monitoring Audit Pack enables lenders and servicers to establish an additional layer of protection quickly and seamlessly within their QC program. ACES Call Monitoring Audit Pack includes custom data fields, ACES managed questionnaires and custom reports configurable to the individual organizations' business needs.

"With the rise in higher escrow charges from insurance and property taxes, we expect banks and mortgage servicers will see an uptick in consumer calls, thus creating a clear need for a call monitoring tool as part of their overall quality control program," said ACES CEO Trevor Gauthier. "With so many guidelines to adhere to, a robust Call Monitoring program is critical to identifying where improvements are needed to protect your organization from regulatory and reputational risk."

Call Monitoring is essential to any substantial risk management program as required by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPFA) and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, as well as state-specific laws. While ACES users have always been able to perform call monitoring audits by leveraging ACES' robust customization capabilities, the new ACES Call Monitoring Audit Pack gives our customers a starting point to quickly and easily leverage the pre-built features. As part of the ACES technology ecosystem, ACES Call Monitoring Audit Pack comes pre-built with the necessary data fields, requirements, and reporting functions to make auditing seamless and will allow servicers to:

* Improve service quality and enhance the customer experience;

* Identify agent skill gaps as input for coaching and training needs;

* Increase productivity; and

* Ensure regulatory compliance to avoid high penalty fines.

"Given all the economic and environmental change in recent years, servicers have felt the brunt of it all. From COVID-19 to natural disasters, they have been on the frontlines of borrower communications. As regulators turn their attention to call monitoring to ensure consumer protection, at a minimum, servicers need to take action through QC tech to show regulators they are utilizing their resources effectively," added Gauthier.

Business, mortgage origination data, Optimal Blue, Reports and Studies

Optimal Blue Originations Market Monitor: Lock Volume Rises 36% Month Over Month in January, Falling Rates and Slowing Decline in Purchase Counts May Signal Lending Relief in 2024

PLANO, Texas -- Today, Optimal Blue announced the release of its Originations Market Monitor report, looking at mortgage origination data through January month-end. Leveraging daily rate lock data from the Optimal Blue PPE - the industry's most widely used product, pricing, and eligibility engine - the Originations Market Monitor provides a comprehensive and timely view into origination activity.

"The new year kicked off with continued rate relief and a 36% month-over-month gain in total lock volume, driven by a seasonal 38% increase in purchase lock volume," said Brennan O'Connell, director of data solutions, Optimal Blue. "We also saw the smallest year-over-year decline in purchase lock counts since May 2022, which may foreshadow a stabilizing market and friendlier lending environment in 2024."

In addition to the month-over-month climb in purchase lock volume, cash-out and rate/term refinance volumes rose 30% and 20%, respectively. The Optimal Blue Mortgage Market Indices (OBMMI) 30-year conforming rate dropped 4 basis points (bps) in January to finish the month at 6.53% after a mid-month peak at 6.7%. FHA and VA rates also fell in January, dropping 4 bps and 3 bps, respectively, while jumbo rates moved in the other direction with an 11-bps increase since year-end.

Mortgage rates fell despite a month-over-month 15-bps increase in the 10-year Treasury yield in January, leading to a 19-bps narrowing of the mortgage-to-Treasury spread. At approximately 250 bps, the January spread reached levels unseen since mid-2022. While still elevated relative to historical averages, the spread has narrowed significantly since eclipsing 300 bps on multiple occasions in 2023.

Conforming products gained market share to start the year, rising 72 bps to account for 57.3% of total volume. Non-comforming products - including jumbo and non-QM - rose 27 bps to make up 9.7% of total volume. Ginnie Mae-eligible products moved inversely, however, with the FHA share dropping 87 bps and the VA share falling 13 bps, each representing 20.7% and 11.7% of total volume, respectively. The share of adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) products stayed consistent at just above 5% of total volume. Improving rate conditions and an inverted yield curve have limited the demand for ARM loans.

The rise in lock volume coincided with a January climb in average credit scores across all products and loan purposes. The average loan amount also rose, increasing from $349.5K to $355.6K. Finally, after six consecutive months of decline, the average home purchase price rebounded, jumping from $435.9K to $444.9K.

Each month's Originations Market Monitor provides high-level origination metrics for the U.S. and the top 20 metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) by share of total origination volume. View the Optimal Blue Originations Market Monitor report for more detail on January activity.

Nothing herein shall be construed as, nor is Optimal Blue providing, any legal, trading, hedging, or financial advice.
