Mortgage Rates have moved lower last week after mortgage bonds were finally able to break above the 50 day moving average.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below, you can see mortgage bonds broke through the 50 day moving average on Tuesday and rallied higher the rest of the week ending on Friday with a Green Candle.  Mortgage bonds are now trading in the middle of a wide trading range between the 50 day moving average acting as a support and a ceiling of resistance at 100.914.  Bonds are still in overbought territory and any follow through to the downside could move rates higher as they move back down toward the 50 day moving average.  We are recommending carefully FLOATING your mortgage rate to see if bonds can make a run at resistance and move rates even lower but if we get a negative crossover signal we would switch to locking right away.

Mortgage Rates have rebounded since hitting a 7 year high in November, helped by a sell off in the stock market which continued on Friday.  If you look at the Fannie Mae 4.0% Mortgage Bond Chart below you can see mortgage bonds have been trapped in a tight trading range this past week between the 25 day moving average (Support) and the 50 Day Moving Average (Resistance).  If bonds can break above the 50 day moving average they have some room to move higher which would move mortgage interest rates lower.  When we looking at the trading technicals there has been an overbought sign on the stochastic chart and if we see a negative crossover confirm it could mean a selloff in mortgage bonds which would move mortgage interest rates higher.  We are recommending CAREFULLY FLOATING Your Mortgage Rate to start the week to see if bonds can break above the 50 day moving average but if we see bonds test the 25 day moving average or we see a crossover on the Stochastic chart, we would quickly switch to a locking stance.

Mortgage Rates have been moving higher since end of August and had big sell off after Jobs Report for October 2018 and have followed through on that sell off until finding support on Thursday.  If you look at the Fannie Mae 4% Mortgage Bond Chart below you can see mortgage bonds have sold until until Thursday when Red Candle stopped right at support at 99.391.  Mortgage bonds were able to rally higher off this support on Friday as you can see with the green candle.  Mortgage ended the week about where they started and are in the middle of a wide trading channel.  Mortgage bonds have been following the lead of the 10 year US Treasury so we predict it will continue to do so this week absent any unexpected economic news.  The 10 Year stopped right at support at 3.19% yield and if it can break below this, mortgage bonds could continue to move higher and move mortgage interest rates lower so we are recommending carefully FLOATING Your mortgage rate to start the week but we have to watch the 10 year, if it doesn’t break lower and moves back up toward the 3.25% level, we would quickly switch to a locking stance.

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.
