Posted To: Mortgage Rate Watch

Mortgage rates moved higher today at the fastest pace since July 3rd as bond markets began backing away from more anxious levels associated with last week's geopolitical headlines. Such headlines (Malaysian airliner and Gaza invasion) can motivate investors to seek safe-havens such as Treasuries and MBS (the mortgage-backed securities that influence mortgage rates). Since last week, bond markets have been relatively on edge but never moved any lower than the initial move on Thursday. If there has been one day since then that "undoes" the flight-to-safety, today is the best candidate. This isn't for any particular reason either. Sometimes when it comes to financial market movements, "it's just time." A few caveats here though... First of all, the movement wasn't exceptionally large in a historical...(read more)

Posted To: MBS Commentary

For the past 4 sessions, bond markets have traded a narrow range near their best levels of the year. This effectively began with the geopolitical risk rally on the 17th. It's not entirely fair to say the narrow trend is over, but if not, it's being stretched to the limit today. Fannie 3.5s are heading out the door just over 3/8ths of a point weaker. This began in the overnight session as European bond markets (using Germany as a benchmark) moved up in yield from their own lowest levels (though in their case, it was all-time lows). Domestic data didn't help as Jobless Claims were much stronger than expected. New Home Sales helped stem the tide of losses by coming in much MUCH weaker than expected. That said, the losses were only really stemmed for Treasuries. MBS maintained a modestly...(read more)

Posted To: MND NewsWire

Freddie Mac said today that its Multi-Indicator Market Index or MiMi for May is sending out mixed signals to the housing market. While more markets entered their stable range of housing activity, most markets remained stalled, just as they were in April, due primarily to weak mortgage application activity. MiMi is designed to monitor and measure the stability of the housing market nationally and in the states and 50 top metro markets relative to the long-term stable range in each. The index combines proprietary Freddie Mac data with current local market data on home purchase applications, payment-to-income ratios (changes in home purchasing power based on house prices, mortgage rates and household income), proportion of on-time mortgage payments and the local employment picture. The data is...(read more)
