The jump in mortgage rates since the announcement of the latest quantitative easing has seemingly played out. Given the still-fragile state of the economy and the emergence of more sovereign debt crises, I expect Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities to rally a bit, giving us slightly lower rates in the coming week.

The daily tech upcrossed to bullish Nov. 22. The shorter-term techs are oversold, and this is a week with trading thinned by the Thanksgiving holiday. But we should see recovery (higher prices, lower yields) for Treasuries next week and a dip in mortgage rates.
