Daily Mortgage Interest Rate Updates, Trends & Projections: California: Spring Valley

Mortgage Rate Update 8-2-13: Trends Projections & Today's Best Rates

The highly anticipated employment data was weaker than expected this morning. As a result, Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) prices jumped swiftly and erased much of yesterday's losses. The economy only added 162,000 jobs (well below the consensus of 180,000 jobs predicted). Unemployment figures have dropped to 7.4%.

Advice:
Treasuries erased losses after a Labor Department report showed the economy added fewer jobs than forecast in July, damping speculation the Federal Reserve will slow the pace of bond purchases next month.
 
My position on MBS changes to Neutral.
(buy back short position).

Market Commentary (Dan Rawitch)

 
No Jobs=No Growth. We saw both of those fact manifest in this weeks news releases. No Growth=deflation concerns. Deflation=LOW RATES.

However, for now...we remain range bound. While it is a wild, volitile and emotional range, it is still range. Today we test the top and hopely, we dont free fall back to the bottom, as we have during the last three tests.

Today would be a likely day to break out, but I cant promise that. This has been one of the toughest markets to trade in my 30 year history.
