RATES HIT 1 MONTH LOWS

Rates Hit 1 Month Lows

October 7th, 2014

Interest rates continued to gradually move slower last week. The Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market finished the week trading up + 45 bps – pushing interest rates in line with their lowest levels in a month.

On Friday, the September employment report was released. Job creation beat all expectations but the good news was interest rates stayed firm and the MBS market only closed down – 9 bps. This is an interesting development, as typically a strong labor report results in interest rates moving higher in a hurry.

The MBS market is also doing well this week, closing Monday up + 19 bps.  Right now we are hitting a level of resistance in the bond market where over the past year – rates haven’t moved much lower than. This trading will likely continue unless a major event propels the bond market lower.

There is not a lot of economic data coming out this week – so interest rates should remain relatively stable for the rest of the week. 30 year fixed are currently at 4.125% paying .125 pts, and 15 year fixed are currently at 3.125% paying 1 point.

INTEREST RATES RISING QUICKLY

INTEREST RATES RISING QUICKLY

February 8th, 2013

Rates have risen approximately .25% on fixed loans since my last update 2 weeks ago.  Adjustable Rate Mortgages have maintained their same levels.  The Mortgage Backed Security market is trading down (-83 bps) over that time.  The stock market has held recent gains which pushes investor money out of bonds, and into the stock market – increasing interest rate pricing. 

Many experts predicted the market would move back down after it’s recent rally.  It hasn’t.   There is increasing confidence among investors and the general public that the US economy is on the right track.  This week it was reported that homes values annually appreciated at their highest levels in 7 years. 

The debt ceiling debate is raging on again and most insiders predict another kick the can down the road strategy with debt cuts.  Congress’s new self imposed deadline is March 1st before large automatic cuts will go into effect.

LOCK RECOMMENDATION:

The market is extremely volatile right now – meaning interest rate pricing can vary significantly each day.  I am recommending locking on any improvements in the market. 

Have a great week!!
