The world is in a much different place as I write this than it was last month, last week or even yesterday. As we sat down to plan the cover story months ago, we planned to cover the non-QM market, and the increased prominence it was expected to play in the secondary market in 2020.

Turn to page 24 to read Mortgage Editor Ben Lane’s account of the month that almost broke housing.
