Mortgage Rates moved higher last week after the stock market rallied.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below you can see mortgage bonds had a big sell off on Monday to start the week but were able to find a bottom on Thursday and bounce off support and follow through on Friday as Stocks turned negative on Friday.  We recommend FLOATING your Mortgage Rate to start the week to see if bond can follow through on their bounce off support last week.

Mortgage Rates spiked higher to end the week on Friday after Consumer Sentiment came out better than it had in 11 years.  This sent the stock market rallying higher and pulled money out of the bond market.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below, you can see mortgage bonds hit record high in almost 2 years on Thursday then sold off sharply on Friday.  We are recommending LOCKING your Mortgage Rate to start the week as the short term trend is now for bonds to continue to sell off if stocks continue to rally.

Mortgage Rates moved to record lows last week as mortgage bonds hit record high for the past 2 years.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below you can see that mortgage bonds hit record high and were stopped at the line of resistance shown in blue.  Bonds were then turned lower after hitting ceiling of resistance so with this in mind, we are recommending LOCKING your Mortgage Interest Rate to start the week as mortgage rates sit at multi-year lows.
