Jason E. Gordon - Mortgage Rate Update -

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

The following information is current as of Tuesday 10-8-2013 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 WORSENING to pricing.  Monday's WORSENING netted a change of 37 basis points (bps).

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

Yields on Treasury three-year notes rose for a third day as the U.S. prepares to sell $30 billion of the securities in the first auction of coupon securities since the government shutdown. China and Japan, Americas largest foreign creditors with combined holdings of more than $2.4 trillion, raised pressure on the U.S. to resolve the impasse that has reached a week. Rates on Treasury bills due on Oct. 24 climbed as high as 0.23 percent, the most since they were issued in April, from negative 0.01 percent as recently as Sept. 27. Benchmark 10-year notes fell before the government sells $21 billion of the securities tomorrow and $13 billion of 30-year bonds on Oct. 10.

My position on MBS stays neutral.

Market Commentary (Dan Rawitch)

Not much to talk about today. A great deal of important data is not getting released, due to the shutdown.

We are drifting toward the bottom of the trading range, as twice we failed to break through the resistance.

I hope your day is GREAT!
