Daily Mortgage Interest Rate Updates, Trends & Projections

Mortgage Rate Update 5-5-2015: Trends & Projections

Yet another volatile morning thus far with the cost to acquire interest rates getting higher. Trade Deficit and ISM Services Data reports are partially responsible for fueling this increase in mortgage pricing.

Compared to yesterday's closing, the market has opened with a 0.125 - 0.250 worsening the Points/Credits associated with any given interest rate option.

This daily mortgage interest rate report is designed to provide Borrowers & Real Estate Professionals with factual data regarding where rates are at any given time and what trends are propelling current mortgage pricing on any given day.

My position on MBS:
Short term Stays Short.
Long term Stays Short.

Long = I anticipate pricing to improve which leads to lower Rates.
Neutral = Market should stay close to open plus or minimums 25bps.
Short = I anticipate pricing to weaken which leads to higher Rates.

Short term = 1 - 2 days out
Long term = 30+ days out

Market Commentary (Dan Rawitch)

The horrible and nonsensical sell off continues. As feared yesterday, we have gone down to test 101.00. At this point the market has assumed the Fed will raise rates and belive it or not, that puts us in a win-win situation. If the FED does raise rates, that and much much more is already priced into that more. If the FED does not raise rates...well, we will still get back most of what we've lost over the last couple of weeks. I know it seems illogical. but that pretty much sums up the market. Buy (or sell) the Rumor and Sell (or buy) the news. I suspect we will hold at 101.00, but this market is do emotional, anything can still happen.

Let's hope the market snaps out of the current sentiment!
