""CMBS loans ticked down slightly in response to rising Treasury yields, but secondary market loan trades were mixed depending on performance level,"" said DebtX managing director Will Mercer. ""Impaired performing CRE loans priced a bit higher and non-performing loans priced a bit lower. Overall, prices are generally flattening out and remain range bound.""
