INTEREST RATES IMPROVE BY .3 BASIS POINTS IN PRICING

INTEREST RATES IMPROVE BY .3 BASIS POINTS IN PRICING

June 24th, 2014

Last week and this week has been rather hectic with mortgage rate pricing.

Last week the Mortgage Backed Security market closed up + 41 bps marked by big movement days on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. This week the market closed down – 25 bps on Monday, but is trading up + 18 bps on Tuesday.

The end result from my last week’s update is that interest rate pricing has improved by about .3 pts in costs at any given rate as a result. So the rates are the same, but the costs to get each rate is lower.

Last week the Fed released their policy statement regarding inflation and lowered their stimulus another 10 billion. On Friday, the May employment report was released which came very close to forecasts with job creation going down to 218,000.

Overall we are in a pretty good place with interest rates right now. Rates are lower today than they were in June of 2013. Pricing is being supported by unrest in the world – most recently with the Iraq conflict.

INTEREST RATES IMPROVE BY .3 BASIS POINTS

RATES MOVE SLIGHTLY HIGHER / 30 YEAR FIXED STILL AT 4.125%

RATES MOVE SLIGHTLY HIGHER   /    30 YEAR FIXED STILL AT 4.125%

June 16th, 2014

Interest rates moved higher over the past 2 weeks with the MBS market closing -55 bps the week before last, and -13 bps last week.
The rate market has gained some ground over the past 4 days though, pulling 30 year fixed rates back into 4.125% territory after being at 4.25% for the majority of the past 2 weeks.

Interest rates are still benefiting from the continued concern of military action across the globe – especially with Iraq heating up.

This week the FED meets with a statement on Wednesday. The market expects the FED to lower their bond purchasing by another 10 billion. This is par for the course due to their last few meetings and is priced into the market already. The FED will also release their quarterly forecast for inflation and GDP.

Overall, interest rates are staying relatively stable and I don’t see any major changes to interest rate pricing this week.

30 YEAR FIXED REMAIN AT 4.125% – BIG EVENTS ON THURSDAY AND FRIDAY COULD CHANGE RATE DIRECTION

June 3th, 2014

Mortgage rate pricing hit their best levels in close to 12 months on Wednesday of last week. The Mortgage Backed Security Market (MBS) market started last week off trading up +43 bps – continuing the rate improvement we have seen for much of the past 4 weeks.

On Thursday the market shifted, resulting in negative trading on Thursday, Monday, and so far Tuesday. Even so, interest rates are still excellent, hovering around their lowest levels in 11 months.

This is a huge week for interest rates with a ton of manufacturing and payroll data being released. The 2 most important events are on Thursday and Friday.

– The MBS market expects the European Central Bank to announce higher bond purchasing (quantitative easing) on Thursday. When the market expects something – the event is already factored into the pricing. If the European Central Bank does not announce more bond purchasing, expect a quick market reversal.

European+Central+Bank+HQ+Frankfurt+Germany

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

– On Friday – the important May employment report is released. The last couple reports have affected mortgage pricing more by revisions to prior months numbers than the month being reported on. The employment report almost always has a large affect on mortgage rate pricing, and usually shapes what will happen in the rate market for the next month.

Payroll

 

 

 

 

 

I’m still in the camp that locking makes more sense right now, especially with rate pricing moving higher over the past 4 days.
