    With the insane roller coaster of a ride in all markets, we are seeing the losses climb back to almost flat levels. Mortgage rates will rise as the market stabilizes.

    Wow, a lot happened since last week with Yellen talking points and the stock market tanking, sending yields to an intraday low of 1.9%. Right now, we are 2.12% for 10-year Wednesday morning pricing.

    Rates have seen quite a run in the last week. While essentially unchanged from last Wednesday, there has been incredible volatility on a day-to-day and hour-to-hour basis. The overall trend at the moment unfortunately points to somewhat higher rates next week.

    Treasuries and mortgage-backed securities have not benefited from the equity market plunge, as would have been expected. And that doesn't augur well for mortgage rates. If the rates didn't improve even with such a beating in the stock market, there is very little reason to believe they're going to move down this week.
