Mortgage Rate Update 2-6-14: Trends & Projections

After declines yesterday, it has been a quiet morning ahead of tomorrow's Employment report. Weekly Jobless Claims dropped to 331K, which was very close to expectations. Fourth quarter Productivity rose to 3.2%, above the consensus of 2.5%. The December Trade Deficit was larger than expected. The European Central Bank (ECB) made no change in rates. The Dow is up 150 points. No more economic data will be released today. 

As a result of the above economic activity, pricing has opened 0.125 / 0.250 WORSE to the points/credits associated with each interest rate option.

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.

Market Commentary (Dan Rawitch)

A big gap down opening is putting bonds to a test, we are now sitting upon the bottom of the channel. My guess is we hold today and wait for tomorrows employment report, although we could see a brief panic attack and dip below the line at some point today. What matters is that we close about the line, and I think we will....at least until we see tomorrows numbers.
