The MBS Market closed last week trading up (+ 16 bps).

Mortgage rates improved again – and are back to all time low levels.

Over the weekend, Greece held their elections and the party that wants to stay in the European Union won. There was not a ton of market movement on Monday because of this – right now the MBS market is trading up +7 bps.

The big thing to pay attention to this week is the FEDERAL OPEN MARKET COMMITTEE (FOMC) meeting on Tuesday and Wednesday and their statement release on Wednesday. Many industry experts predict they may extend purchasing mortgage backed securities in another set of Quantitative Easing. If they do, mortgage rates usually will go lower. If they don’t, mortgage rates will likely move higher. If you don’t want to risk it, we can lock your loan and offer a float down if rates get better after we lock.
