Mortgage Rate Trend Index


Will rates go up, down or remain unchanged?

I don't want to sound like a broken record, but I think we will see some slight increase in rates next week as the market adjusts back to where it was before the recent consecutive drops we saw during May and part of June.

If mortgage rates had a comfort level, that level would be about one-eighth of a percentage point higher than it is now.

Expect mortgage rates to rise marginally this week. Mortgage rates and equities have been moving in lock step with each other. As equities moved down over the last six weeks, it resulted in a sustained flight into bonds, hence causing yields to decline. Now the decline has slowed and bonds are starting to rebound. As yields rise, so will mortgage rates.

The market is oversold. A small correction is coming. Rates move higher.
