How to Price and Read the MPF Price Sheet - Mandatory Pricing

Pricing Example

If you are looking for a profit margin of      1.50
Less the SRP paid to you by the servicer    - .68
Equals                                                                 .82

To make your required margin and looking for an MPF 45 day price of .82, using the pricing grid below you would lock at note rate of 3.125 for a price of .93505710. 

Some PFIs will price to their profit margin and the SRP is just extra income. In this scenario using the pricing grid below for a 45 day lock with at a note rate 3.25, you would have an MPF price of 1.87599110.
