Increased Volatility for Interest Rates

Increased Volatility for Interest Rates

It has been a hectic few weeks for interest rate pricing. Last week – the Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market traded down for the first 3 days – pushing rates higher in 7 of the previous 8 days. On Thursday and Friday with the disappointing US employment report – interest rates gained some momentum lower with the MBS market closing positive both days and ending the week trading up + 9 bps.

Friday was the worse day for interest rates I’ve seen in a long time. The MBS market closed -87 bps pushing rates to their highest levels of 2015.

Investors are taking money out of the bond and MBS market and repositioning it with the recent turn around in the European bond market. I’m strongly suggesting to lock as this point – as it’s just too risky to float.

30 year fixed rates are now available at 3.875% paying .87 points (4.04% APR), and 3.99% paying 0 points (4.05% APR). 15 year fixed rates are now available at 3.125% paying .55 points (3.23% APR), and 3.25% paying 0 points (3.28% APR). **Priced with 740+ credit score, rate and term refinance at 75% LTV**
