Daily Mortgage Interest Rate Updates, Trends & Projections

Mortgage Rate Update 6-13-14: Trends & Projections

Despite lower than expected PPI inflation data, Mortgage Backed Securities moved lower this morning. One reason is due to a speech last night suggesting that the Bank of England may begin to raise rates sooner than expected. Some investors are contemplating whether the Fed will provide similar guidance at its meeting on June 18, 2014.

Pricing has opened 0.125 - 0.250 WORSE to the points/credits associated with each interest rate option.

The Treasury yield curve approached its flattest level in almost five years as investors speculated the Federal Reserve may raise interest rates sooner than forecast. Longer-maturity bonds have outperformed this week as signs the U.S. recovery is uneven helped bolster demand for safer assets with extra yield. The difference between five- and 30-year yields fell toward the narrowest since 2009. Gilts dropped after Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said yesterday that the bank may raise its key interest rate earlier than investors
expect. You have a hawkish statement out of a central bank, said Ira Jersey, an interest-rate strategist in New York at Credit Suisse Group AG, one of 22 primary dealers that trade directly with the Fed. That could mean the Fed may not be too far behind. Threes and fives have to start pricing for that. That part of the curve is vulnerable to hawkish central bank policy. The 30-year yield rose three basis points, or 0.03 percentage point, to 3.41 percent at 9:05 a.m. New York time, according to Bloomberg Bond Trader data. The 3.375 percent bond maturing in May 2044 fell 15/32, or $4.69 per $1,000 face amount, to 98 27/32. The yield added one basis point this week. Yields on benchmark Treasury 10-year notes added three basis points to 2.63 percent to push the weekly gain to five basis points.

My position on MBS:
Short term stays Neutral. -- Thinking about going 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)

PPI was a negative number which is great for rates. Consumer Sentiment was also a miss. These things combined with yesterdays retail numbers should give us the fuel for a run up...but it's not happening yet. We should pop up above 102.00 and at a minimum move toward the center of the trading range. If not, we risk seeing the down channel we have formed, play out and that will take us to 102.50ish. The technicals are weak given the news we have seen lately and that should cause you some concern. Be careful!
