Mortgage Rate Update 9-16-13: Trends Projections & Today's Best Rates

One of the candidates for Federal Chief withdrew unexpectedly over the weekend.  His withdrawal leaves Janet Yellen, the current Fed Vice Chair as the clear favorite to replace Ben Bernanke. She is expected to continue the Fed's loose monetary policy, which caused a rally in both stocks and bonds this morning. Today's economic data had little impact. The Dow is up 170 points. No more economic data will be released today.

This daily mortgage interest rate report is designed to provide Borrowers & Real Estate Profesionals with factual data regarding where rates are at any given time and what trends are propelling current mortgage pricing on any given day. Feel free to browse the library and research historical rate updates dating back over 2 years at www.JasonGordon.info whenever desired.  To make things easier, I have also posted a quick report on How To Read The Charts Below.

Also, make sure to learn THE TOP 10 THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT MORTGAGE RATES (to help understand the relationship between rates & fees/credits) along with THE TRUTH BEHIND MORTGAGE QUOTES (to better understand the relationship between up-front closing costs and mortgage interest rates so you don't get duped by clever advertising campaigns). Remember, we all make better decisions in life when we have the actual facts to analyze...share this report with those whom you care about!

Treasuries advanced, with 10-year yields falling by the most in six weeks, after Lawrence Summers withdrew his candidacy to become the next Federal Reserve chairman. Benchmark notes rose for a fourth day as Pacific Investment Management Co.s Mohamed El-Erian said the exit of the former Treasury secretary increases the probability of policy continuity at the Fed. This would be seen as being particularly supportive to shorter-maturity notes, El-Erian wrote in a commentary on the Business Insider website. Treasury yields will still increase by year-end as the economy improves, according to Societe Generale SA in Paris. The market had assumed Summers was going to get the Fed chairmanship and that he would be more hawkish than other potential candidates, said Peter Jolly, head of market
research for National Australia Bank Ltd. in Sydney. With him stepping aside and withdrawing his candidacy, were likely to see bonds rally.
My position on MBS stays Long.
( FNMA 3.0 Oct @ 94*201/2 )
Considering selling long position.

Market Commentary (Dan Rawitch)

Summer has caused a Fall in bond yields! Lawrence Summer has allegedly pulled his name out of the running for Fed Chairman. It turns out I was not the only person terrified by the prospect of Summer running the FED.
This is a big news week, I'd expect reasonable volitility. I would also expect some profit taking up here and attempt to close the gap. I dont see the gap closing all the way, but I do see us testing the resistance line I drew on the chart.
