Bonds have reached a technical point of resistance and are continuing to push rates higher. See this as an opportunity to lock in rates at the best levels of 2011.

With rates bouncing along near or at the bottom and national debt concerns, it's likely they'll increase.

Expect rates to bounce up just slightly as money moves from bonds back to equities. Both the nominal and inflation rates have gone down considerably from even a month ago. While the economy continues to find a foothold in this rocky recovery, rates will remain low for some time. Jobs as we all know are the key to securing the recovery.

Rates have had a nice run since mid-April. Look for rates to pop up a bit from here.

Rates are very likely to increase in the coming week.

MBS markets are trending into oversold positions and if jobless claims come in lower as expected tomorrow morning, there is a good chance mortgage rates will increase. If you are floating and expected to close in the next week, I would recommend locking in prior to tomorrow.
