Mortgage Rates were able to finally stabilize last week after mortgage bonds found a floor of support.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below you can see mortgage bonds were able to bounce higher off a floor a off support (Blue Horizontal line) and end the week higher just below a ceiling of resistance.  We are recommending FLOATING your mortgage rate to start the week to see if mortgage bonds can continue to rally break through the ceiling of resistance which would move mortgage interest rates lower.  The long term trend is still for mortgage rates to move higher but in the short term we might be able to catch a slight improvement in interest rates by floating.  If mortgage bonds switch course and break below the support from last week, we will quickly switch to a locking stance.

Mortgage Rates ended the week lower as mortgage bonds broke below support on Friday to end the week.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below you can see mortgage bonds traded sideways most of the week but broke through support on Friday as the Stock Market continues to rally.  We are recommending LOCKING your mortgage rate until mortgage bonds can find a floor of support.  Long term outlook is for mortgage interest rates to continue to move up throughout 2018 as the bond market looks to turn to a bear market.  If Treasury yields continue to rise it will force mortgage bond prices to fall which will move mortgage rates higher.

Mortgage Rates moved higher last week as mortgage bonds broke through support and the stock market rallied to new record highs.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below you can see mortgage bonds broke below support  on Tuesday with the giant red candle.  Bonds were able to find a floor of support on Wednesday and tested the floor again on Friday before recovering.  We are recommending FLOATING Your mortgage rate to start the week to see if bonds can rally off the floor of support and move mortgage interest rates lower but if bonds fall below the floor of support, we will quickly switch to a locking stance as mortgage bonds would have a long way to run down before next floor of support.

Mortgage Rates moved slightly higher last week after mortgage bonds failed to break above the 50 day and 25 day moving average and were turned lower as the stock market set another record high to end the week.  If you at the mortgage bond chart below you can see mortgage bonds are stuck trading between the ceiling of resistance and floor of support shown by the blue lines.  Bonds failed to rally above the blue line on Tuesday and were turned lower and sold off after the jobs report on Friday.  We recommend starting the week FLOATING your mortgage rate to see if bonds can bounce off support and move higher but if bonds break below the floor of support we would quickly recommend LOCKING your mortgage interest rate.

Mortgage Rates moved higher last week as mortgage bonds sold off after failing to break through a tough ceiling of resistance.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below you can see mortgage bonds have been on downward trend since failing to break through a tough ceiling of resistance at the beginning of December.  Mortgage bonds had been trading in a sideways pattern stuck between a ceiling of resistance and a floor of support.  Mortgage bonds broke out of that trading channel to the downside last week moving mortgage interest rates higher.  Mortgage bonds did find a floor of support on Friday so we are recommending carefully FLOATING your Delaware mortgage rate if you failed to lock your rate but if mortgage bonds continue to sell off and break below this current floor of support we will have to recommend you lock your interest rate ASAP.

Mortgage Rates ended the week right about where they started after a roller coaster week of moving higher than falling lower to end the week.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below you can see mortgage bonds started the week on Monday slightly higher than they ended the previous week but sold off to end the day on Monday moving mortgage interest rates lower.  Mortgage bonds continued to sell of until Wednesday after the Federal Reserve announced they would raise the Fed Funds Rate 0.25%.  Mortgage bonds ended the week by closing just below a touch a ceiling of resistance that has persisted October.  We are recommending LOCKING your mortgage rate to start the week because mortgage bonds are once again up against a tough a ceiling of resistance with lots of room to sell off to the downside.
