Mortgage Rates moved higher last week as mortgage bonds fell following through on a sell off that started with the Jobs Report the previous week.  If you look at the Fannie Mae 4.0% mortgage bond chart below you can see mortgage bonds are in a downward trend that started at the end of August.  As mortgage bonds sell off and move lower, mortgage interest rates move higher.  Bonds ended the week below a layer of support which will now be a resistance, if they break below the next floor which they are sitting on, there is plenty of room to fall before reaching the next floor of support.  US Treasuries have moved up and ended the week at 3.0% and will probably move up to 3.1% before finding a ceiling of resistance.  With all of this headwind for bonds, we are recommending LOCKING Your mortgage rate to start the week.

Mortgage Rates ended the week higher as mortgage bonds sold off on Friday after the August Jobs Report was released.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below you can see mortgage bonds started the week on Tuesday by selling off and continued on Wednesday but were able to find a floor of support and produce a good technical signal that was followed through on Thursday with a rally shown with the green candle.  Mortgage bonds on Friday sold off and gave back all the gains after the jobs report was released.  Mortgage bonds broke through the floor of support at the 100 day moving average and broke through another floor of support set back on August 3rd.  With more room to the downside for mortgage bonds, we are recommending LOCKING your mortgage rate to start the week to protect yourself from mortgage interest rates moving higher.
