Mortgage Rates moved higher last week as mortgage bonds broke through support and moved lower.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below you can see mortgage bonds broke below support that held last week and moved lower to test the next level of support.  Friday mortgage bonds were able to bounce off support and rally higher so we are recommending FLOATING your mortgage rate to start the week to see if bonds can continue to rally and move interest rates lower.

Mortgage Rates ended the week lower as mortgage bonds sold off to end the week.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below you can see mortgage bonds have been trading in a seesaw pattern as bonds bounce off support and are pushed lower by resistance.  Mortgage bonds ended this week at the bottom on the trading pattern stopping right at support.  We are recommending LOCKING your mortgage rate as mortgage bonds have a tough ceiling of resistance overhead and if break below support have a good way to go lower and move mortgage interest rates higher.

Mortgage Rates ended the week about where they started which is almost the lows for the 2017.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below you can see mortgage bonds have rallied higher since hitting the lows of the year in the middle of March.  Mortgage bonds are now at a very tough ceiling of resistance which they failed to break and stay above this week which means going to be tough for bonds to move higher from here and move mortgage interest rates lower.  We are recommending LOCKING Your mortgage rate to start the week as mortgage rates are at lows for 2017 and could move higher in the short terms if mortgage bonds sell off.

Mortgage Rates ended the week slightly higher after failing to move lower on Friday.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below you can see mortgage bonds moved higher on Monday and then traded sideways until Friday.  Bonds made a run at tough overhead resistance on Friday but were turned lower and ended the week down with the red candle on Friday.  We are recommending very carefully FLOATING your mortgage rate to start the week to see if bonds can make another run at tough overhead ceiling of resistance but be on guard because last time failed to break above resistance bonds switch trading pattern to selling off and moving interest rates higher.
