Mortgage Rate Trend Index


Will rates go up, down or remain unchanged?

European debt worries will continue for some time. Although progress was made concerning Ireland, problems in Spain, Portugal and Italy still remain. Economic information has been a mixed bag. However, inflation does not appear to be taking a back seat for much longer. Again, while it will be a roller-coaster ride for one more week, I will continue with no changes for rates for the next seven days.

The technicals show a mixed picture. The daily stochastic is bullish but pattern-constrained. There seems to be technical resistance keeping the 10-year above 2.75 percent. Contagion fears regarding EU debt are about all that Treasuries have going for them.

I believe rates will remain steady over the coming week.
