Mortgage Rates ended the week last week where they started but move higher to start this week as mortgage bonds failed to close above resistance. If you look at the mortgage bond chart below you can see mortgage bonds lost momentum last Thursday after mortgage bonds fell back below resistance. Then mortgage bonds sold off again on Friday after failing to move above resistance. Monday mortgage bonds fell through to the downside and mortgage rates moved higher. We recommend LOCKING your mortgage rate since bonds are selling off in the short term.
