Mortgage Rates have moved up from the lows of 2018 as geopolitical and trade war uncertainty have eased as well as the release of some solid economic data.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below you can see mortgage bonds have been trending lower since hitting the high of 2018 at near the end of May.  Mortgage bonds closed just at the 25 moving average and the technical signals are not good for mortgage bonds so we recommend LOCKING your mortgage rate.

Mortgage Rates were slightly higher to end the week as mortgage bonds traded in a wide range between support and resistance.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below you can see bonds started the week just below a ceiling of resistance and failed to break through and sold off till hitting floor of support on Wednesday and then rallying off the support to end the week in the middle of the trading channel.  We are recommending FLOATING your mortgage interest rate to start the week to see if mortgage bonds can continue to move higher and challenge the ceiling of resistance but if bonds fail to rally and sell off we would quickly switch to a locking stance.

Mortgage Rates were able to maintain the gains seen the previous week as mortgage bonds were able to rally off support and move higher.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below you can see mortgage bonds are now trading in a short term upward trend channel which moves mortgage interest rates lower.  The mortgage bonds were stopped on Friday at the 25 moving average and turned lower.  There is still room to the downside if mortgage bonds lose steam and will not move higher from here unless can break above the 25 day moving average.  We are recommending carefully FLOATING your mortgage rate to see if mortgage bonds can make a run at breaking through the 25 day moving average which would move mortgage interest rates lower but if bonds tart to sell off then we would quickly switch to a locking at stance.

Mortgage Rates were finally able to move lower as mortgage bonds rallied higher last week.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below you can see the short term trend of bonds selling off was able to reverse last week as mortgage bonds were able to move higher.  The move lower in mortgage interest rates was expected as the 10 Year US Treasury finally hit 3.04% and then backed off from there.  There was a very important technical level that needed to be reached before we could see Treasuries and mortgage bonds take a breather and reverse course in the short term.  Long term we feel it is only a matter of time before US Treasuries break above this ceiling and mortgage rates again begin to move higher.  In the short term we are recommending FLOATING your mortgage rate to see if we can see a relief rally continue in mortgage bonds.

Mortgage Rates continued to move higher last week as mortgage bonds broke through another floor of support.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below you can see the trend is for mortgage bonds to sell off in the short term and the long term.  Mortgage bonds broke out of a sideways trading channel to the downside because Treasury Yields have spike higher forcing mortgage bonds to sell off.  Mortgage bonds are sitting another floor of support that doesn’t seem likely to hold so we are continuing to recommend LOCKING your mortgage rate to start the week.
