    Stay right here! That is what we are all hoping for. Well, at least when it comes to mortgage rates. The bond market has done well in the wake of the Fed's not moving interest rates. We are currently holding just slightly above the 200-day moving average. This is huge! If we can do this and stay here, interest rates have some nice room to move in a favorable direction. I say float at this time!

    The daily tech is nearing the end of a bullish cycle (higher prices, lower yields), while the weekly cannot decide which way it is going. The current Treasury market displays high volatility driven by uncertainty as to the state of the domestic economy and bigger questions about the world economy. Not an easy time for forecasting.

    Nervousness about the health of the global economy has kept, and will keep, mortgage rates low.

    We have had a nice rally recently. With each most recent attempt to improve from where we are now, we have been dragged back higher. We will have to see where the employment numbers roll out, but I'm not expecting anything robust. If numbers are light, we could improve.
