Mortgage Rate Update 8-21-13: Trends Projections & Today's Best Rates

30-yr Rate: Actual 4.68%, Last 4.56%.
7:00: Existing home sales for Jul: Consensus 1.6%, Last -1.2%.
Treasury 10-year note yields approached the highest level in two years before the Federal Reserve releases minutes of its July meeting that may contain signals on when policy makers plan to curtail monetary stimulus. Benchmark 10-year yields were higher before an industry report that economists said will show existing home sales increased last month. Treasuries advanced yesterday as speculation a withdrawal of stimulus will hurt emerging-market economies stoked demand for the safety of U.S. government debt. Chinas manufacturing contracted at a slower pace this month, analysts said before the data tomorrow. We will get some more details on the Feds thinking in the minutes, said Vincent Chaigneau, global head of rates and foreign-exchange strategy at Societe Generale SA in Paris. The focus may still be on emerging markets, and in particular in Asia, where we have the Chinese PMI tomorrow. If there is disappointment there, it could bring some near-term support to Treasuries.
My position on MBS stays Neutral.

Market Commentary (Dan Rawitch)

Oddly, the crash of the Indian Rubee remained quiet yesterday and the DOW showed no reaction. Bonds however did rally and we got a nice bounce off of the bottom.
Today we learned that existing home sales came in a little lower than expected and Mortgage apps dropped AGAIN, this time another 4.7%.
The market is waiting on pins and needles to hear the FOMC minutes later today. Technically, the close above 99 was bullish, if we can hold that and the FED trys again to get the markets mind off of tapering, we should get a bigger bounce. On the other hand, he could say something harmful and all bets are off. Stay alert and have a great day!
