Mortgage Rates Spiked Higher after Donald Trump was elected the new President of the United States.  If you look at the bond chart below you can see mortgage bonds broke through support at the 200 day moving average on Tuesday Election day.  This was a bad sign for bonds and on Wednesday bonds follow through by selling off again and breaking through 2 more floors of support to end down almost 100 bps.  Thursday mortgage bonds again sold off and broke through 2 more floors of support.  This is very bad technical data and bonds more room to sell of before hitting the next floor of support.  Mortgage Rates moved higher as the market priced in the risk of a Donald Trump Presidency with his stated policy anticipating a rise in inflation.  Inflation is bad for fixed investment assets like bonds so bonds sold off in dramatic fashion jumping mortgage rates anywhere from 0.25% to 0.5% higher depending on your qualifying factors.  We recommend to LOCKING your mortgage rate as interest rates could continue to rise as the market digests what affect a Trump Presidency will have on the markets.

Mortgage Rates moved higher again last week as mortgage bonds continued to sell of as investors took profits.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below you can see mortgage bonds ended the week lower and closed below the 100 day moving average.  There is still room to the downside for mortgage bonds before they hit a floor of support at the 200 day moving average so we are going to recommend starting the week LOCKING your DE mortgage rate as mortgage interest rates will probably continue to move higher in the short term.
