What a great day for the market on Friday. Typically an improvement of 24 basis points will result in a mid-day pricing improvement for the benefit of the Borrower! See below for a full breakdown of the recent activity for Friday, the last 10 days, and even the last month.
The Mortgage Street Smarts of where mortgage interest rates are going (and why):
The following information is current as of Monday 4-9-2012 and will help you understand todays 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 Friday with an IMPROVEMENT to pricing (and will typically warrant a pricing adjustment by most Lenders). Friday's IMPROVEMENT resulted in a change of 24 basis points (bps).
NOTE: Due to Good Friday, the market closed early (thus the "flat line" in the afternoon period)
(hint: upward activity is good, downward activity is bad)

With not much on the news front for help, we might see some buying as traders re-open close positions. Otherwise I expect a slow day. With trading range in the 3.0 coupon 100.625 – 100.875.
My position on MBS stays neutral.
