Mortgage and Lending with AmeriFirst Financial Inc, San Diego, CA NMLS 259027

Yet another volatile day yesterday (stop me if you've heard this before). In both anticipation of, and reaction to the Fed Meeting (FOMC), we lost upwards of 70 basis points before sharply making up ground near the final bell. The end result was a 31 basis point worsening to pricing. Thus far today, we have lost an additional 25 bps.

The following information is current as of Thursday 7-11-2013 and will help you understand today's best mortgage rates.

The market closed Wednesday with a SIGNIFICANT WORSENING to pricing.  Wednesday's SIGNIFICANT WORSENING netted a change of 31 basis points (bps).

My position on MBS changes to Long.

Market Commentary (Dan Rawitch) happened. Bernanke recanted and tried to take back all the fear he created over the QE tapering concerns. Does the market believe him? The DOW sure does. If fact, the Dow believes so strongly that causing a bit of a "risk on" mentality which may be pulling money that could be going to Bonds. I do believe, over the next several trading days, traders will continue to jump on the Bond wagon.
Lets hope for a great 30 year auction today and a nice low PPI number tomorrow. We should test 101.00
