The Mortgage Reports:
 
Mortgage Rates Drop Sharply After Inflation Data (But Bounce a Bit After The Fed Announcement)
6/12/2024 3:10 PM
It was an incredibly high consequence day for the bond market and, thus, mortgage rates due to the confluence of two extremely important events. The first event was the monthly release of the Consumer Price Index (CPI), which is one of the two economic reports with the far more power to influence interest rates than any other.  The other repo...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Barely Budge For 3rd Straight Day, But That Should Change Tomorrow
6/11/2024 2:30 PM
Today"s mortgage rates were fairly close to yesterday"s at the average lender for the 3rd business day in a row.  Friday was the last day with any substantial movement when rates spiked following the upbeat jobs report.  Since then, the average lender has only moved by 0.01% on each of the past 2 days. The absence of movement made better...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Slightly Higher to Start Pivotal Week
6/10/2024 2:02 PM
There"s been a noticeable uptick in mortgage rate volatility over the past two weeks with a quick spike at the end of May, a nice drop in early June and then another spike last Friday following the jobs report.  Of course everything"s relative, so in objective terms, it was roughly a 0.30% round trip for conventional 30yr firxed rates. &n...Read More
 
Rate Optimism Put To The Test by Jobs Report
6/7/2024 2:32 PM
There"s a strong case to be made for the fact that interest rates had a sunny predisposition this week.  In practical terms, that simply meant giving more credence to rate-friendly news and trying harder to overlook unfriendly news. But the predisposition was put to the test in a major way with the week"s most significant economic report toda...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Hold Steady Ahead of Important Economic Data
6/6/2024 3:00 PM
The outcome of certain economic reports will determine whether the next big move in interest rates is higher or lower.  Two reports are more important than all others in that regard and we"ll get both of the them by next Wednesday. Tomorrow"s jobs report is the more pressing matter.  It may not be quite as important as next Wednesday"s C...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Improve Again, Despite Headwinds From Economic Data
6/5/2024 2:46 PM
The phrase "data dependent" is ingrained in the current bond market psychology for good reason.  Weaker trends in economic data will reliably cause the Fed to cut rates when the time comes.  This is particularly true for inflation-related data, but other reports still matter.  One of those reports came out this morning, but things di...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Another Step Closer to 3-Month Lows
6/4/2024 3:18 PM
For most lenders, you"d still see modestly lower rates on several days in mid May, but apart from that, you"d need to go all the way back to early April to see anything lower.  Said differently, today"s rates are fairly close to the lowest levels in 3 months. If the 3 month distinction is to be earned in the near term, it will come down to th...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Fully Erase Last Week"s Spike
6/3/2024 2:23 PM
Mortgage rates had a rough go of it in the 4 days following Memorial Day weekend (i.e. last week). To be fair, the tough part was limited to the first two days.  Thursday and Friday both helped to undo some of that damage, but the average lender was still at higher levels compared to the week before the holiday weekend. That has changed today...Read More
 
Plenty of Rate Volatility Despite Holiday-Shortened Week
5/31/2024 3:08 PM
This week got off to a late start as markets were closed on Monday for Memorial Day. Upon returning to the office, traders began pushing rates higher almost immediately. It"s often said that the bond market can experience elevated, seemingly random volatility amid the lighter trading participation seen on the days surrounding 3-day weekends. ...Read More
 
Mortgage Rates Break 5 Day Losing Streak, But Remain Elevated
5/30/2024 2:44 PM
If we overlook the nearly unchanged performance from last Friday, mortgage rates were on a 5 day losing streak as of yesterday afternoon with the 30yr fixed rising about a quarter of a percent.  That streak ended today as the bond market responded to favorable inflation data and tame comments from the Fed.  We can also consider that some...Read More
