The 0.10 percent drop brought rates to their lowest level since the survey began in 1990 and spurred the first increase in demand in five weeks. The Refinance Index was up 8.6 percent and the seasonally adjusted Purchased Index increased 3.4 percent. Michael Frantantoni, MBA's vice president of research and economics, said refinance activity is up nearly 30 percent over the past four weeks. More here and here.
