March 2017 interest rates

WEEKLY RATE – Interest Rates Drop to 1 Month Lows, Then Come Back to Earth

WEEKLY RATE – Interest Rates Drop to 1 Month Lows, Then Come Back to Earth

Interest rates continued their hot streak last week and early this week.    

Investors seemed to be moving to the safety of bonds with concern over whether President Trump would be able to implement his regulation slashing business policies after the failed health care repeal and replace. The stock market has been way up since Donald Trump’s election, but that rally has stalled and reversed in the past week.

The Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market closed last week trading up + 41 bps and closed Monday of this week trading up + 26 bps, helping to push interest rates to their lowest levels in over a month.   Then the stock market rebounded on Tuesday and the MBS market tanked, ending trading down – 38 bps. 

Overall, rate pricing is still pretty good to where it has been much of March.  Expect daily volatility to continue but long term rate pricing to remain relatively stable.

WEEKLY RATE – Mortgage Rates Hit 3 Week Lows after FED raises Federal Funds Rate

WEEKLY RATE – Mortgage Rates Hit 3 Week Lows after FED raises Federal Funds Rate

Everyone in the market expected the FED to raise interest rates on March 15th.  So when that happened, the market had already cooked the movement in.  What made interest rates improve at their fastest rate in 2017 was the FED Future rate increase outlook which did not increase.

This caused the Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market to end March 15th up a whopping + 73 bps.  That improvement has continued and the MBS market is up + 121 bps since March 15th, pushing rates to their lowest levels in over 3 weeks.

More political uncertainty in the news is also causing some investors to flee to the safety of bonds, helping mortgage interest rates.
