RATES MOVE SIDEWAYS / VOLATILITY AHEAD

RATES MOVE SIDEWAYS / VOLATILITY AHEAD

August 10th, 2014

Mortgage rates moved sideways last week even though the MBS market closed the week trading up + 22 bps. Markets hit their highs on Thursday with geopolitical concerns causing investors to seek safety in treasuries and bonds.

On Friday – after trading higher for much of the day – Mortgage Backed Securities closed sharply lower after Russia ended military drills on the Ukraine border and speculation that the conflict in this region was deescalating.

Mortgage interest rates are artificially lower than they should be due to military conflicts around the world.

A lot of people I follow see mortgage rates entering into a volatile week with the possibility that mortgage rates could move higher. They have been holding at this low level for some time when most experts predicted mortgage rates to move significantly higher in 2014. My recommendation is to lock.
