The bond market closed last week trading up (+ 66 bps). Another good week for the bond market but we have reached a level where rates aren’t really going any lower, regardless of the bond market. Some lenders have raised their pricing a little bit, even though the bond market is trading up.

The Mortgage rate market is still tied closely to the debt crisis in Europe. If investors continue to invest in the safety of US treasury bonds, mortgage rates should remain at their current levels.
