Mortgage Rate Trend Index Unchanged: Dec 12, 2013
Will rates go up, down or remain unchanged?
Dick LepreSenior loan officer, RPM Mortgage, San Francisco
The weekly tech is bearish (lower prices, higher yields) and the daily is not sending any strong signal. With GDP and BLS already factored in, I will go with flat for the next week.

I don't expect much movement in mortgage rates until the run-up to the Fed meeting in late January.
Greg McBride, CFASenior financial analyst, Bankrate.com
Mortgage rates to hold steady until we hear from the Fed regarding whether the tapering starts this month or not.
Bob MoultonPresident, Americana Mortgage Group, Manhasset, N.Y.
Rates are stable for now.
John WalshPresident, Total Mortgage Services, Milford, Conn.
I believe that mortgage rates will remain roughly the same in the coming week as we await the results of next week's Fed meeting.sidential Finance
