    As the Fed continues to shrink the mortgage-backed securities program, rates will drift higher.

    In Seattle, when fall starts, the rain returns. Apparently the forecast works for home loan rates, too. Sept. 18-23, mortgage rates steadily improved; on the 24th it rained. Get out your umbrella and lock your interest if you are closing in the next 20 days. If it is longer, the financial forecast has some clearing ahead. Keep in mind, talk of "inflation" is what dark clouds are made of. If you hear it, rates could go from raining to "hail" in a handbasket, quick.

    The weekly tech is bearish (lower process, higher yields) and calling for slightly higher rates.
