Mortgage Rate Trend Index


Will rates go up, down or remain unchanged?

We are back to the same mortgage rate levels we saw at the end of June, but 30-year rates have declined faster than 15-year rates, meaning 30-year mortgages offer more relative value today than 15-year mortgages. When compared to April, 30-year rates have compressed by 0.25 percent more than 15-year rates.

It's been three weeks with no change whatsoever. Rates have troughed. Increases are ahead.

Mortgage rates have been on an upward trend the past few days and I think that will flow into the upcoming week. With the FinReg bill being passed into law, it will take some time for the equity and mortgage-backed securities markets to digest the effects. This can cause unfavorable results in the short term for rates.
