Mortgage Rate Trend Index

 
 

Will rates go up, down or remain unchanged?

The first few days of the second round of quantitative easing haven't gone as many people in the mortgage industry had expected. Treasury yields and mortgage rates have spiked in recent days. Perhaps this is because of rising inflation expectations. Given the recent PPI and CPI reports that show little or no inflation, I expect those inflation expectations to subside. Because of this, I see mortgage rates falling in the coming week.
