30 yr fixed: fell to 4.78% down from 4.80% last week. It hit a 40 yr. low of 4.17% in November, 2010.

15 yr fixed: fell to 3.97% down from 4.02%  from the week prior. It reached 3.57% in November, 2010, the lowest level on record starting in 1991.

5 yr adjustable: fell to 3.51% down from 3.61%  a week earlier. It hit a 5 yr. low of 3.25% last month, the lowest on record dating back to January, 2005.
