    What do you think about this article? Any immediate impact on AGNC?

    • Absolutely no impact, as this once again was an article written on pure supposition built upon many "ifs". Wait until absolute announcements of impending implementation. That moves the needle, as we saw with the FC fiasco, hard deadlines, preceded by uncertainty, followed by resolution...the former driving the market down, the latter, up.

      The addage is correct, buy the rumor and sell the fact, on Bullish potential events. The FC was a bearish potential event, so the opposite was true, sell the rumor(FC) and buy the fact(avoiding the cliff). Same deal with the Fed. If unemployment declines to 6.5%, short term rates will rise. Should be a bearish cliff idea....the deal is at that time, long rates will increase also, so the spreads should remain the same...Yin, Yang...its all perception....
