Daily Mortgage Interest Rate Updates, Trends & Projections: November 2014

Mortgage Rate Update 11-26-14: Trends & Projections

We have had a huge batch of economic data released today ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, but so far the reports have had little impact on Mortgage Backed Securities. Durable Orders & Jobless Claims both came in higher than expected, while Personal Income, Chicago PMI, New Home Sales Index, and Consumer Sentiment all came in below expectations.

Compared to Tuesday's closing, the market has opened identical to the Points/Credits associated with any given interest rate option.

Advice:
More Americans than forecast filed for unemployment benefits last week, indicating the improvement in the labor market has stalled. Jobless claims increased by 21,000 to 313,000 in the week ended Nov. 22, the highest since early September, from 292,000 in the prior period, the Labor Department reported today in Washington. It would take several weeks of sustained elevated readings to confirm the labor market has taken a step back. The median forecast of 48 economists surveyed by Bloomberg
called for a decline to 288,000, with estimates ranging from 280,000 to 300,000. The prior weeks claims were revised from an initial reading of 291,000. There was nothing unusual in the data and no states were estimated last week, a Labor Department spokesman said as the report was released to the press. The four-week average of claims, a less-volatile measure than the weekly figure, climbed to 294,000 from 287,750 the week before. The number of people continuing to receive jobless benefits
dropped by 17,000 to 2.32 million in the week ended Nov. 15, the fewest since December 2000. In that same period, the unemployment rate among people eligible for benefits fell to 1.7 percent, the lowest since November 2000, from 1.8 percent the prior week, the report showed. Initial jobless claims reflect weekly firings and typically decrease before job growth can accelerate.

 

My position on MBS:
Short term Stays Long.
Long term Changes to Long.
Being that this is a short week, we might see some unexpected volatility in the market.

 

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
