The Mortgage Street Smarts of where mortgage interest rates are going (and why):

The following information is current as of Wednesday 9-12-2012 and will help you understand today's best mortgage rates. If you are a Buyer/Borrower who is still on the fence (or if you are a Real Estate Agent attempting to educate your "on the fence" Buyer), please review these trends and secure an historically low interest rate before it is too late.

The market closed Tuesday with a WORSENING  to pricing (and will typically warrant a pricing adjustment by most Lenders). Tuesday's WORSENING resulted in a change of 3 basis points (bps).

Treasuries fell for a second day after Germany’s top constitutional court backed the ratification of Europe’s permanent bailout fund, damping demand for the safest assets. U.S.10-year yields climbed to a three-week high as the Federal Constitutional Court dismissed motions filed by groups seeking to block the fund, ending legal challenges that delayed efforts by euro-area leaders to contain the debt crisis. Treasuries also dropped before the U.S. sells $21 billion of 10-year notes today and the Federal Reserve starts a two-day policy meeting. German bunds also declined.  “Treasuries are being dragged lower with bunds after the court verdict as safe assets are suffering across the board,” said Michael Leister, a fixed-income strategist at Commerzbank AG in London. “Focus will switch to U.S. domestic issues, with the Fed meeting coming under close scrutiny, as well as supplyaffecting the long-end maturities.”


My position on MBS changes to neutral.
