Mortgage Rate Forecast for June 30, 2010

Here are some of the events affecting mortgage rates today:

What Mortgage Backed Securities (MBS) Are Doing Today:

  • The price of the FNMA 30-Year 4.0% MBS coupon opened at 101.50 this morning - the same as yesterday's close.

  • At 9:30 AM, the 4.0% MBS coupon was trading at 101.31 - down 6/32 from its opening.

Remember, on mortgage backed securities (MBSs), as the price goes down, the yield goes up - and so do mortgage rates. I expect that mortgage rates will be up to 0.250 points worse in price this morning as compared to yesterday.

Price Trend in Mortgage Backed Securities:

The chart below shows the price trend of the FNMA 30-Year 4.0% coupon over the past 30 days from 5-31-2010 to 6-30-2010:

Economic Reports, News, and Events Affecting Mortgage Interest Rates Today:

  • There are no economic reports scheduled for release today.

In other news, the ADP Employment Report  revealed that only 13,000 private jobs were created this month. In contrast 41,000 private jobs were created in May, and this follows the creation of 218,000 jobs in April and 158,000 jobs in March.

Mortgage Rate Lock Advice:

Mortgage rates are at historic lows - they have not been this low since 1953 - and could possibly go even lower as the global economic crisis continues. However, the US is continuing on its deficit spending spree, and is adding to its massive debt. This is causing consternation among the other members of the G8. As such, I would not risk the chance waiting for lower mortgage rates.

If I was closing within the next 5 - 7 days, I would lock in the rate.

If you are closing in more than 7 days, send me an email to get my rate lock advice.

Be sure to check out today's mortgage rates.
