Markets start to fall in earnest as the reality of a tapering and then ending in QE sinks in - even as the chairman is at pains to prove it's anything but a tightening move. The DJIA (DIA -0.8%) is off 145 points as the 10-year Treasury yield soars 15 bps to 2.33%, its highest level in 2 years. Reversing sizable early gains is the mREIT sector (REM -2.3%) - a leveraged holder of the paper the Fed will no longer be buying - with American Capital (AGNC -2%), (MTGE -1.5%), Annaly (NLY -2.2%), Invesco (IVR -2.5%), Two Harbors (TWO -3.5%), and Anworth (ANH -2.2%) leading the way. The greenback (UUP +0.9%) continues to fly higher.
