  • Mortgage Rates Highest in a Week Ahead of Fed

    Posted To: Mortgage Rate Watch

    Mortgage rates rose to the highest levels in more than a week today, but that's the most dramatic way to put it. In terms of outright movement, today was fairly average. It only earns the "highest in a week" distinction due to the incredibly flat trend that persisted from Tuesday through yesterday afternoon. More simply put, most borrowers would still be quoted the same rate as yesterday with the only difference being slightly higher upfront costs (or lower upfront credit, depending on the scenario). All the recent stability in rates begs the question: what might come along to shake things up again? Enter tomorrow's policy announcement from the Federal Reserve (the Fed) . While the Fed doesn't directly dictate mortgage rates or even longer term rates like US Treasury yields, the Fed Funds Rate...(read more)

    Posted To: MND NewsWire

  • MBS Day Ahead: Still In The Range, But Defensive Trend Continues

    Posted To: MBS Commentary

    While there have been a few pockets of decent gains in the past week (Thursday afternoon and yesterday morning), the general trend has been toward weaker levels since last Wednesday. That marked the 2nd time in March that 10yr yields bounced at 2.80% in a clearly-delineated sort of way. Each bounce has given way to fairly linear selling trends (i.e. rates moving higher). Yields are currently riding that trend into tomorrow's FOMC announcement. There are several pivot points (or "technical levels") in 10yr yields that serve as a backdrop for the recent breakout attempts and subsequent trends. Naturally, with the 2 big bounces both happening at 2.80%, that's an obvious choice for the bottom of the recent range. The high end is a bit more subjective, but 2.91% is a good first...(read more)
