I do have an accurate measure for the duration RMBS's moves. So sorry that you have blocked and shunted any reasonable discourse on the subject. I will trade (quite successfully, thank you) using TA. You, on the otherhand can remain in the dark..."I just do not know how much longer this correction will last"....nor did you know WHEN it was coming....fortunately, I did.
