Mortgage Rate Update 7-25-13: Trends Projections & Today's Best Rates

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

Durable Orders were stronger than expected this morning, while Jobless Claims came in very close to the consensus. Mortgage Backed Securities (MBS) opened low and moved lower after the news, but have since returned close to opening levels? There will be a 7 year treasury auction later this morning. Prices are on average 0.250 worse compared to yesterday, depending on rate and product.

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

The following information is current as of Thursday 7-25-2013 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 Wednesday with a WORSENING to pricing.  Wednesday's WORSENING netted a change of 6 basis points (bps).

(hint: upward activity is good, downward activity is bad)

10-year yields approached the highest level in a week before a government report that economists said will show orders for U.S. durable goods increased for a third month in June. The U.S. is scheduled to sell $29 billion of seven-year notes today after auctions of two- and five-year debt this week drew lower-than-average demand. New home sales climbed to a five-year high, the Commerce Department said yesterday, bolstering speculation the economy is strong enough for the Federal Reserve to start trimming bond purchases. Thirty-year yields approached the highest in almost two years after U.K. economic growth quickened and German confidence improved. Theres been a signal that the global business cycle may have reached the bottom and the economy is recovering, albeit at different paces in the U.S. and Europe, said Annalisa Piazza, a fixed-income analyst at Newedge Group in London. The U.S. has led the others in terms of growth, and Treasury yields are likely to be on an upward path although we expect some volatility in coming months. The benchmark 10-year yield rose one basis point, or 0.01 percentage point, to 2.60 percent at 6:53 a.m. in New York, according to Bloomberg Bond Trader prices. The 1.75 percent note due in May 2013 fell 3/32, or 94 cents per $1,000 face amount, to 92 22/32. The yield climbed to 2.62 percent yesterday, the highest since July 15. The 30-year yield was at 3.66 percent after rising to 3.72 percent on July 8, the most since August 2011.
My position on MBS stays Long.

Market Commentary (Dan Rawitch)

Mixed news but most of it bond friendly in my opinion. I suspect many traders are sitting on their buy or sell orders until they get a glimpse of todays 7 year auction.

THe charts are weak and we have a failed head and shoulder. It will take a great deal to prevent gravity from pulling us down to test 100. I am hoping we can hold Par and start developing a trading range, while we rest up for the next climb
