Mortgage Rates moved lower again last as mortgage bonds rallied and broker through another ceiling of resistance.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below, you can mortgage bonds have been on an upward trend since reversing course on November 8, 2018.  Bonds started the new year at the highs of 2018 as we moved into 2019.  Mortgage bonds did end the week by moving lower from the high after a very strong jobs report and ended in the middle of the trading range.  Bonds have more room to the downside before reaching a floor of support and with the stock market rallying to end the week, we are recommending LOCKING your mortgage rate to start the week to take advantage of the best mortgage interest rates seen in almost a year.

Mortgage Rates have moved to the lows not seen since last May.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below, you can see mortgage bonds have rallied higher since hitting the lowest point of the year on November 8, 2018.  Since then, bonds have continued higher break through each ceiling of resistance and finally breaking through the 200 day moving average which has been a ceiling of resistance bonds could not break all year.  Stocks sold off to end the week on Friday which helped mortgage bonds move higher up to the next ceiling of resistance at 101.856.  Since bonds continued to start strong even in the face of a stock market recover of a 1,000 points last week, we are recommending FLOATING your Mortgage Rate to start the week to see if bonds can break through the next ceiling and move mortgage rates even lower.

Mortgage Rates have move to the lows not seen since the spring of 2018 as bonds have benefited from a sell off in the stock market.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below, you can see bonds broke through the 200 day moving average last Tuesday which was a very significant ceiling of resistance.  Bonds stayed above the 200 day moving average all week so it is now a very good floor of support for bonds.  Monday stocks are expected to continue to sell off as a relief rally has not been evident and a strong floor of support for stocks is still lower.  We are recommending FLOATING Your mortgage rate into holiday as bonds should benefit from a continued sell off in stocks,  If stocks find a floor of support and mount a rally we quickly switch to locking your mortgage rate.

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.
