Delaware Mortgage Rates moved higher last week as mortgage bonds continued to sell off since hitting the highs of the year at the beginning of September.  If you look at the bond chart below you can see the pattern for mortgage bonds has been to sell off and trade lower.  Mortgage bonds did hit a very important floor of support on Friday which did hold.  If mortgage bonds break beneath this support it will be very bad sign for mortgage bonds and we will see rates continue to move higher.  We are recommending LOCKING your Delaware mortgage rate to start the week as mortgage bonds have been trading lower and closed just above a floor of support.  We would like to see a bounce off support before we switch to a floating stance.

Mortgage Rates moved to the lows of the year as the bond market rallied in part because of continued low inflation.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below you can see mortgage bonds have been on an upward trend since the middle of July 2017.  Mortgage Bonds hit a tough ceiling of resistance on Thursday and were turned lower and Friday closed down from the highs not seen since last November.  Low inflation, meager wage growth, inept Congress and under performing GDP remain primary tailwinds for mortgage Bonds and lower rates. With mortgage rates at record lows, we are recommending LOCKING your mortgage rate to start the week to take advantage of these low rates.

Mortgage Rates ended the week about where they started as mortgage bonds were stuck trading in a tight channel between resistance and support.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below you can see the blue lines marking the floor of support and resistance that bonds have been trading.  The mortgage bonded ended the week right at the ceiling of resistance that has held for several weeks.  The Treasuries have broken beneath a tough floor of support at 2.18% and if can fall further, would help mortgage bonds break through a tough ceiling of resistance so we are recommending FLOATING your mortgage rate to start the week.
