Mortgage Rates moved higher again last week as mortgage bonds continued to sell off and follow the down trend.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below you can see mortgage bonds have been selling off since hitting high on January 3rd.  Mortgage bonds broke beneath support on Thursday and followed through on Friday.  Bonds ended the day on Friday falling down to the next floor of support at the 25 day moving average at 101.6875.  If stocks continue to do well, then bonds will fall through the 25 day moving average and continue to fall to the next floor of support at 101.3402.  With the short term trend for mortgage bonds to continue to move lower, we are recommending LOCKING your mortgage rate to start the week.  Borrowers should understand that the best loan pricing of the year was back on Thursday, January 3rd.  The next day the Bond market received two punches in the mouth by way of the blockbuster Jobs Report and Fed Chair Powell’s overly “dovish” and stock-market friendly speech and it has shown no signs of revisiting those January 3rd levels at this time.

Day 31 of the Government Shut down falls on Monday Martin Luther King Day.  So What is a Government shut down?  In the normal US budget process each year, Congress has to appropriate funds by September 30th which they didn’t this year.  When it doesn’t happen, a continuing funding resolution is enacted.  When a funding resolution can’t be reached by Congress, it forces the government to shut down and non-essential discretionary federal programs close.  Essential services continue during a shutdown as do mandatory spending programs, but essential workers do not get paid… although they will likely get those funds after shutdown, it doesn’t help them make mortgage and rent payments now.  The current government shutdown began on December 21st at midnight and on January 12th it became the longest shutdown in US history.

The US Congress must be deemed “essential” as they still receive their pay during the government shut down as does the President.

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr Day from Primary Residential Mortgage Keep Reading...
