In response to increasing year-end demand, home-equity product will continue hitting the asset-backed trading block in weeks to come, and is on the rise, according to sources in the industry.

Notable deals in the queue include a Green Tree Financial Corp. HEL deal and a Household International high-loan-to-value transaction.

An ugly food fight, reflecting the fear of being under-invested in spread product over year-end."
