Tuesday's bond market has opened down sharply, reversing yesterday's major rally that came during late afternoon trading. Today's economic news was weaker than expected, but has failed to stop the selling in bonds and buying in stocks. After closing down 237 points and 55 points respectively yesterday, the Dow and Nasdaq have recovered a good portion of those l osses this morning. The Dow is currently up 168 points while the Nasdaq has gained 36 points. The bond market is currently down 28/32 after closing up 43/32 yesterday. But due to yesterday's rally, I am expecting to see a slight improvement … (0 comments)

The stock markets are rebounding form yesterday's losses with the Dow currently up 104 points while the Nasdaq has gained 31 points. The bond market is currently down 11/32, which will likely keep this morning's mortgage rates near yesterday's levels. Strength in bonds late y esterday prevented an increase in this morning's rates. The first report of the week was October's Housing Starts that was posted early this morning. It showed an increase in starts of new homes of 3.0%, exceeding forecasts of a 1.5% decline.

Tuesday's bond market has opened flat despite weaker than expected economic news and early stock losses. The stock markets are in negative territory with the Dow down 45 points and the Nasdaq down 3 points. The bond market is currently nearly unchanged from yesterday's closing levels, which should keep this morning's mortgage rates unchanged.The Confe rence Board said this morning that their Consumer Confidence Index (CCI) for October fell to 95.6. This was much lower than was expected and indicates that consumers felt much less confident in their own financial situations than many had thought. This is good news for bonds … (0 comments)

Tuesday's bond market has opened in positive territory as stocks show another round of losses. The stock markets are again posting early weakness with the Dow down 91 points and the Nasdaq down 17 points.

Tuesday's bond market has opened in positive territory as yesterday's buying seems to be carrying over to today.

Tuesday's bond market has opened in positive territory following a much weaker than expected consumer confidence reading. The stock markets are posting moderate gains again with the Dow up 17 points and the Nasdaq up 5 points. The bond market is currently up 8/32, which will likely improve this morning's mortgage rates by approximately .125 of a discount point.The Conference Board posted their Consumer Confidence Index (CCI) for September late this morning, showing a reading of 99.8. This was much lower than the 104.5 that was expected and was the lowest reading since November 2005. That indicates that consumers were far … (0 comments)

Thursday's bond market has opened well in negative territory despite weaker than expected economic news. The stock markets are down slightly with the Dow down 12 points and the Nasdaq down 4 points.

They said that the index fell 0.6%, indicating that economic activity may slow relatively quickly during the next three to six months. This is good … (0 comments)

TUESDAY AFTERNOON UPDATE:Today's FOMC meeting adjourned with an announcement of a rate cut of a half point. This move didn't come as a surprise to many analysts, but was the first reduction since June 2003. The stock markets have reacted favorably with the Dow now up 230 points and the Nasdaq up 50 points. The bond market initially tanked after the news, but has since recovered those losses to remain near this morning's level. We may see an afternoon improvement to mortgage rates if bonds can remain near their current levels.The post meeting statement indicated that the Fed was concerned about … (0 comments)

Tuesday's bond market has opened in negative territory following the release of this morning's inflation data. The stock markets are posting early gains with the Dow up 70 points and the Nasdaq up 8 points. The bond market is currently down 7/32, but I am not expecting to see much of a change in this morning's mortgage rates as lenders wait for the results of today's FOMC meeting before making significant changes.The Labor Department reported that August's Producer Price Index (PPI) fell a whopping 1.2% when it was expected to drop 0.3%. However, the core data reading rose 0.2%, exceeding forecasts … (0 comments)

Tuesday's bond market has opened in negative territory following early stock market gains. The stock markets are currently rallying with the Dow up 135 points and the Nasdaq up 25 points. The bond market is currently down 5/32, but I don't believe we will see much of a chance in this morning's mortgage rates. Today's only data was July's Goods and Services Trade Balance report that showed the U.S. trade deficit stood at $59.2 billion. This was very close to forecasts and due to the lack of attention this data gets directly by bond traders, it has not had an effect … (0 comments)

Thursday's bond market has opened down slightly following a stock market rebound. The Dow is currently up 59 points while the Nasdaq has gained 10 points. The bond market is currently down 6/32, but we will likely still see an improvement in this morning's mortgage rates of approximately .250 of a discount point due to strength in bonds late yesterday.Today's only important news was the revised 2nd Quarter Productivity numbers that showed productivity actually rose at 2.4% annual rate in the second quarter. This was a sizable upward revision from the original reading and stronger than analysts had expected. That is … (0 comments)

Tuesday's bond market has opened in positive territory again as investors seek safe-haven from stock volatility.
