    I am not a huge fan of TV; it's so predictable at times. You know what I mean: "Coming this fall … TV's biggest new series: A dating reality show drama about cops in a hospital on a deserted island." The markets are like that at times. Nothing too big is happening this week. No economic reports are due or euro drama. Floating for now, we are in a tight range, so be cautious. I call this the "Tim Tebow effect." That's where nothing is happening and -- BAM -- someone does something irrelevant that causes a shock wave in the markets.

    Rates will remain stable, as there is no major economic news this week.

    The 10-year Treasury is making a run at 2 percent. If we have a close above 2 percent and follow-through action, look for the 10-year to go to 2.25 percent.

    Mortgage rates have been relatively stable the last few weeks. Rates should remain near unchanged but have the risk of rising a bit heading into the FOMC meeting next week. Locking early in the application process is likely in your best interest.
