Mortgage Rate Trend Index


Will rates go up, down or remain unchanged?

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.
