MORTGAGE RATES RISE WITH LESS CONCERN OVER EUROPE’S DEBT CRISIS

MORTGAGE RATES RISE WITH LESS CONCERN OVER EUROPE’S DEBT CRISIS

August 13th, 2012

The MBS market closed last week trading down (-38 bps) and on Monday the MBSmarket closed down ( – 3 bps).    

Mortgage rates rose last week as fewer investors are seeking the safety of US Bonds and Mortgage Markets.  These markets are technically selling negative – pushing rates up from their previous lows.  The general mood on Europe’s monetary situation has improved with optimism that a solution to ease the situation will eventually happen.  This optimism causes less demand for mortgage backed securities, pushing the prices lower and rates higher.

I recommend locking as the MBS market technical indicators are in a bear state, indicating that rates could continue to creep higher. 

My best value of the week:
