The Mortgage Street Smarts of where mortgage interest rates are going (and why):

The following information is current as of Thursday 8-29-2013 and will help you understand today's best mortgage rates. If you are a Buyer/Borrower who is still on the fence (or if you are a Real Estate Agent attempting to educate your "on the fence" Buyer), please review these trends and secure an historically low interest rate before it is too late.

The market closed Wednesday with a WORSENING to pricing.  Wednesday's WORSENING netted a change of 6 basis points (bps).

Advice:
Treasuries fell, with five-year notes halting a three-day advance, before the U.S. sells $35 billion of the securities today in the second of three auctions of coupon-bearing debt this week. Treasuries have gained this week as speculation that the U.S. and its allies will take military action against Syria boosted demand for the safest assets. Treasuries have rallied on safe-haven flows but appear to taking a pause for breath ahead of supply, said Nick Stamenkovic, a strategist at RIA Capital Markets Ltd. In Edinburgh. Tapering fears are also at the forefront of investors minds. Hence further gains in Treasuries may be limited near-term.
 
My position on MBS changes to Neutral.

Market Commentary (Dan Rawitch)

Tough opening... As expected, a lot of resistance at the 100.25 level. No news, this is just technical and perhaps some positioning ahead of GDP tomorrow.
 
I suspect with the Syrian conflict rising...we should see more pressure on the DOW and some flight to safety, leading people to bonds. Lets hope we can hold 99.75 throughout the day and then tomorrow if GDP in weak, we should take another run at 100.25.
