RATES MOVE HIGHER AFTER REPORTS OF RUSSIA / UKRAINE PEACE AGREEMENT

RATES MOVE HIGHER AFTER REPORTS OF RUSSIA / UKRAINE PEACE AGREEMENT

April 21st, 2014

Interest rates remained relatively stable for most of the week until Thursday.

On Thursday a peace accord was reported between Russia, Ukraine, the EU, and The United States. Investors have been monitoring this situation closely and once it appeared that the danger of a serious conflict had diminished, traders took money out of the safety of Bonds and Mortgage Backed Securities and into more higher risk, higher reward investments. This caused interest rate pricing to move up quite a bit on Thursday and Friday.

At the close of the week, the Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market closed down -66 basis points. On Monday, we saw a slight rebound with the MBS closing up + 12 basis points.

The Ukraine situation is worth monitoring as much of the reason interest rates are not higher than they are is due to the unrest in this region and investors wanting the safety of the bond and MBS markets.

Currently – 30 year fixed rates are available at
4.25% paying 1 point (4.45% APR), 4.5% paying 0 points (4.55% APR), and 4.625% paying $0 costs (4.625% APR) for a well qualified borrower.
15 year fixed rates are available at 3.375% paying .73 points (3.515% APR), 3.625% paying 0 points (3.63% APR), 3.75% paying $0 costs (3.75% APR).

There is not a ton of data this week so I’m hoping we will see some small price improvement in interest rate pricing.
