MBS RECAP: Bonds Vote To Hold The Range Despite Stronger Data

10yr yields tested multi-month highs overnight (1.573), but improved gradually leading up to the domestic session.  Bond bulls held their breath at 8:15am ET when ADP employment data came out stronger than expected, but traders took it in stride.  After a few moments of weakness, yields continued falling into the 10am hour.  The rest of the day was flat despite some traction on a temporary debt ceiling extension deal.
