Mortgage Rate Trend Index


Will rates go up, down or remain unchanged?

Mortgage reporter, 
Rates have fallen for too many weeks in a row. This normally doesn't happen. If it weren't for Bernanke's speech Tuesday acknowledging the economy is growing at a much slower pace than expected, rates would have increased this week. So I think they'll adjust next week.

They have gone down nine weeks in a row. Let the good times stop.

The short-term daily tech is finally starting a bear cycle (lower prices, higher yields and rates). This is by no means a sign that rates are headed higher in the medium term. The weekly tech is still bullish and the monthly appears headed for a midlevel upcross. English translation: While we are looking at slightly higher rates for the next week or two, the long-term technical picture points to lower Treasury rates.
