Mortgage Rate Trend Index


Will rates go up, down or remain unchanged?

Cameron FindlayCameron Findlay

Despite small improvements regionally, the foundation of a recovery has been weakened by further declines in employment prospects. This raises concerns over consumer appetite to accomplish what they're best at -- consuming and spending. With about 70 percent of GDP being consumption-driven, spending needs to pick up and the risk of deflation remains real.

Never bet against a rally-in-process. Rates have further to fall.

Rates can edge a little lower -- although don't get too complacent. At these levels, rates can pop higher with little reason. For anyone who missed their last window to refinance, now is the time to get back in the game.
