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

The following information is current as of Tuesday 7-16-2013 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 Monday with a SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT to pricing.  Monday's SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT netted a change of 37 basis points (bps).

Treasuries erased a gain after the cost of living in the U.S. rose in June by the most in four months as gasoline prices increased, a sign inflation is advancing toward the Federal Reserves goal.

My position on MBS stays Long.

Market Commentary (Dan Rawitch)

Bonds for holding tough in spite of a flurry of BOND unfriendly economic news. Crossing 101 is crucial and I believe, if we cross with some velocity and with some fundamental basis...we will see a large buying spree. THe goal here is flush out all the knuckleheads that bailed out and shorted on July 5. As bonds move from weak hands to stronger hands, could things will happen. I still see that coming.
BTW- Greece does not have the money for their next payment, nor have they met the terms required to recieve their next traunch of capital. I believe the ECB and company will give them the money anyway, because the altnerative will spark VERY BAD things accross Europe.
Just be careful...this market is still mean, ugly and volitile!
