WEEKLY RATE – Interest Rates Reverse Course and Improve

WEEKLY RATE – Interest Rates Reverse Course and Improve

After moving up much of the prior week and a half, mortgage interest rates found some positive momentum, improving 5 of the last 7 days.

The Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market closed last week up + 34 bps and is trading this week up + 39 bps.  The bond markets trading up is a positive for interest rates.

Most investor eyes this week are on the announcement by the European Central Bank on Thursday.  The main topic of interest is how far away the Bank is from tapering it’s balance sheet.  I expect rate pricing to moderately improve before the announcement but the actual announcement is a high risk event.

Even if the announcement is seen as a positive for interest rates, I don’t see rates moving a ton lower than current levels without a major stock market correction or an unforeseen event that moves markets.  That being said, most indicators are that the stock market is over valued at the moment so a correction is not out of the question.

As always, have an amazing week and we’re always available if you need help with a new home loan purchase or refinance.
