    Need some education re. interest rates

    "MBS REITS make money from favorable interest rates spread.." "they borrow at low rates and lend in the mortgage markets @ higher rates,...".

    I have tried to educate myself by reading a lot of articles to understand "the spread" of which 2 rates? Is it the spread between Fed Fund rate (borrowing) and 10 yrs Treasury (lending)? Or is it between 2 yrs and 10 yr Treasury? Or between Fed Fund rate and 30 yr mortgage fix rate? Or...??? I still can not figure it out.
    If some one would kindly educate me please. Appreciate it very much.
