The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Efforts by the Federal Reserve to prop up the mortgage-backed securities (MBS) market do not appear to have worked as well as hoped, according to a new data analysis released by Bloomberg.As of Sept. 29, the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. MBS index month-to-date excess return versus Treasuries came in at -0.18%, which Bloomberg identified as the worst September performance for MBS since the -0.20% recorded in September 2015. The average monthly excess return during September over the last decade was 0.09%.Furthermore, Bloomberg warned the benchmark was likely to record its worst performance for the first nine months of a year since 2015 with a loss of -0.56%.“Unlike that year—when the Fed wasn’t growing mortgages on its balance sheet—the current underperformance is taking place despite the central bank adding around $40 billion of MBS each month,” observed Christopher Maloney, a market strategist and former portfolio manager authored the Bloomberg coverage of the data analysis. “This highlights the headwinds facing the sector as elevated supply, fast prepayment speeds and the risk of forbearance have proved a potent mix.”Still, there is no reason to suspect the Federal Reserve will shift its course of action. Maloney noted the central bank is committed to keeping rates at historic lows and retaining its quantitative easing policy.“Whether that will be enough to overcome the headwinds and produce excess return for the sector as a whole remains to be seen,” he added. “Yet, if one is partial to the investing maxim ‘don’t fight the Fed,’ it’s notable that the Fannie Mae 30-year 2% and 2.5% coupons, which are the focus of the bank’s purchasing, sport positive year-to-date excess returns of 0.66% and 1.48%, respectively.”One factor that can create more angst in the MBS involves forbearance. The Bloomberg analysis highlighted that forbearance occurs more than twice in the Ginnie Mae portfolio than with conventional mortgages.“With 70% of those forbearance agreements ending during this month and next, buyouts, which act much like prepayments to mortgage investors, could be a near-term problem in the Ginnie space,” Maloney wrote.

It said the Luxembourg office would provide its clients with “increased options post-Brexit and guarantees EU operating capacity”.Matthew Hudson, chief executive officer at MJ Hudson, said: “A launch in Luxembourg was already on our radar before the Brexit events of 2016. It is a significant funds market in its own right with extremely strong and stable laws, structures, regulations and complementary service providers.“However, our plans were accelerated by the UK’s vote to leave the EU last year. We have been actively building this platform for more than twelve months and I am delighted at the high calibre of the team we have been able to attract.” MJ Hudson launched its fund management solutions team for continental Europe from the Luxembourg offices this week. The team of six is is led by Olivia Tournier-Demal, ex-lawyer and Lombard Odier senior vice-president, and Thomas Meyer, previously at the European Investment Fund (EIF).

Some science news outlets are having an eye-poking battle against intelligent design with the latest eye-popping claim about eye evolution. It seems to have started in Australia on Science Alert, where some exceptionally-preserved placoderm fossils were found:The palaeobiologist discovered that unlike all living vertebrate animals – which includes everything from the jawless lamprey fish to humans – placoderms had a different arrangement of muscles and nerves supporting the eyeball – evidence of an “intermediate stage” between the evolution of jawless and jawed vertebrates. “The vertebrate eye is the best example of structural perfection – as used by proponents of intelligent design to claim that something so complex couldn’t possibly have evolved,” Dr Young said.The creature already had fully-formed, functioning eyes. The discoverer was only claiming that a change in the arrangement of muscles and nerves around the eye hinted at a transitional arrangement between jawless fish and modern vertebrates. The suggestion that a missing link had been found, however, was enough to send other reporters wielding their fingers in battle against ID. “One in the eye for intelligent design,” jeered Brendan O’Keefe in The Australian. The Sydney Morning Herald was even more brazen: “‘Eye ancestor’ debunks ID nonsense.” The Science Alert article was slightly more reserved. Entitled “Fossil evidence of early eye,” it ended, “This means that we’re able to add one more piece to the puzzle of how the human eye came to be.”Next to Tinker Bell and Yoda, Popeye is one of the Darwin Party’s favorite characters. Believing that eyes can just pop into existence with the greatest of ease, they picture Popeye, filled with Darwin spinach, knocking the living daylights out of the ID Brutus, as Olive Oyl (Eugenie Scott) grasps her hands adoringly, saying, “My hero!” Problem is, the ID folk aren’t watching the cartoons. They are grown up. They live in the real world. They look ahead. They watch ID the Future.(Visited 12 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
Related Posts In 2009, the average U.S. Internet user spent 13 hours per week online. This number is down slightly from last year. Thanks to the large interest in the presidential election and the financial crisis, the average Internet user was online for roughly 14 hours per week in 2008. According to a new poll from Harris Interactive, users between the ages of 30 to 39 are the most active Internet users. On average, this group is online for 18 hours per week. Overall, the average time online for U.S. Internet users has gone up from seven hours in 1999 to close to nine hours in 2003 and up to 11 hours in 2007. We should note that these numbers only include adults. According to Nielsen, which looked at all U.S. Internet users, the average usage per week is closer to 17 hours.98% of All Computer Users in the U.S. are OnlineThe number of adults who are online has not changed since 2007. In total, 184 million adults regularly surf the Internet at work, home or school. While the number of adults who are online has not changed, the number of adults who access the Internet at home has increased from 66% in 2005 to 76% in 2009. Ten years ago, only 56% of all adults accessed the Internet from home. In total, 98% of all computer users are now online.

Online ShoppingWith regards to online shopping, Harris found that 50% of adults bought something online in the last month. Not surprisingly, 30- to 39-year-olds are the most active online shoppers. How High Will These Numbers Go?Given how popular online video and social networks have become over the last few years, chances are that the average number of hours spend online will continue to grow slowly over the next few years. U.S. Internet users who watch TV online watch close to 18 hours of online video per week already. In the U.K., the average Facebook user spends close to three full days per year on the site. Without doubt, however, there will be a natural limit to how much time per week people will spend online.
Related Posts AI: How it’s Impacting Surveillance Data Storage Follow the Puck Tags:#AI#artificial intelligence#Autonomous#empathy#infrastructure#mobility#ReadWrite Labs#Sensum#transportation#V2X#vehicle to everything Transportation will never be the same once our machines know how we feel.We are all entering a wholesale, global disruption of the way people move from one place to another. More than any other change in this sector, the one that is likely to have the most significant impact on human society is the rise of autonomous (i.e., self-driving) vehicles.The transportation industry, historically dominated by a handful of large vehicle-manufacturing brands, is evolving into an ecosystem of ‘mobility services,’ underpinned by artificial intelligence (AI). A major step in the development of AI is to give it ‘empathy,’ allowing our physiological and emotional states to be observed and understood. This connection will mostly be achieved by connecting to wearable or remote sensors, the same way that fitness bands allow our physical state to be monitored.By feeding this sensor data into AI systems, we can train them to know how we feel and how to respond appropriately. This kind of empathy can also be enhanced by giving AI its own artificial emotions, imbuing it with simulations of feelings.Empathic technology will have no small effect on the mobility sector. How might an empathic vehicle look?Safe TravelsThere is already a growing body of research from top-tier auto companies into what kind of empathic interactions will protect drivers, passengers and everyone around them from harm. To investigate this, biometric sensors, cameras, and microphones are being used to detect:Fatigue & drowsiness: e.g., monitoring head or eye movements, posture or heart/breathing rate.Distraction: e.g., gaze detection to ensure the driver is watching the road.Intoxication: e.g., using infrared optics or analyzing voice or breath.Medical incidents: e.g., detecting a potential cardiac event from a wearable heart-rate sensor.A Comfortable JourneyAfter ensuring the safety of the humans in the system, empathic tech can be employed to optimize the ride experience. There is a universe of auto-suppliers you’ve probably never heard of, who build all the components and systems that end up in the well-known vehicle brands. They are leading the way to a more empathic ride, with innovations such as:Environmental controls: e.g., lighting, heating, AC, sound and olfactory output, customized to suit your current mood.Physical controls: seat position, engine configuration, etc.Humanising AI feedback: the virtual assistants like Alexa and Siri that are invading our homes and phones are also reaching into our vehicles. With empathic AI we can tailor their feedback to suit our preferred style of interaction.An Entertaining RideNow that our customer is safe and comfortable, they can benefit from AI that knows how to push the right emotional buttons at the moment. This is particularly likely to apply to the onboard music and infotainment systems. Other subtle ways in which a vehicle could be designed to optimize the thrill of the ride include offering to increase the engine’s power output when the driver is feeling confident and happy.The New Norms of Autonomous SocietyAn autonomous vehicle doesn’t exist in a bubble. Much of its intelligence is based on sensing its environment and making rapid judgments about how to act. Each vehicle will also be integrated with a global network of systems, able to share information ranging from weather forecasts to road obstructions. By connecting each vehicle to its neighbors and the wider world, we will see the emergence of a new type of ‘social’ structure with its own norms of behavior.This AI-driven ‘society’ will involve interactions not just between the vehicles and their drivers or passengers, but also with onboard devices, nearby pedestrians, other vehicles, and their occupants, as well as surrounding infrastructure. The etiquette and rules of what the market calls ‘vehicle-to-everything’ (V2X) communications will establish themselves as we gradually let go of the wheel and hand our mobility needs over to ‘the machines.’This mobility ecosystem is also likely to share data and processes with the rest of the AI in our lives, such as in our smartphones and home-automation systems. If coordinated correctly, this unified data architecture would allow empathic vehicles to know us much better, behaving ever more like a trusted friend.This is not just a technological problem; it’s a monumental user-experience challenge too. Gradually increasing the empathic capability of the system will support the evolution of the transport experience towards one that is not only safe and comfortable but also delightful.The future of mobility is emotional.Editor Note & Disclaimer: The author is a member of the Sensum team, which is an alumnus of our ReadWrite Labs accelerator program.
