    The daily and weekly techs of the 30-year Treasury future are bearish (lower prices, higher yields.) Slightly higher rates for several weeks.

    Mortgage rates will continue slowly clawing back the post-Brexit decline, especially with the Federal Reserve's upbeat economic assessment. The Fed added these descriptions of the economy in the most recent statement: "strengthened," "strong," "increase," and "growing strongly," all of which indicate a September rate hike is on the table.
