Good question. The answer depends on what type of desk you're referring to of course. The usual IB desk is primarily doing agency order flow about 80% - 90% of the time. If they have a good PnL...

With the end of the QE programs by the US FED, I thought it would be interesting to map where this thread started vs. where we are now. Quite startling to say the least. One thing I did see by...

Looks like you have a small amount of days loaded on your chart. Try and increase that to at least 120 days. Once loaded, spread the chart out a little so you can see the TPO structures better.

Yes, we may be venturing a bit off topic but I do enjoy discussing this. In theory, I could see how that would be reasonable but this is assuming someone is just positioning long term...
