Mortgage rates moved lower today, bringing the average lender to the best levels since late February. Despite the milestone, the day-over-day movement in rates has been pretty mild. Most lenders are making changes that are only noticeable in the form of upfront costs (aka "points") as opposed to rates themselves. If we use upfront costs and rates to extrapolate an "effective rate," the average movement has been 0.01-0.02% on any given day. Rates have been more likely to move lower vs higher in the past 6 days, but that creates some risks in and of itself. Market participants who trade the securities that underly mortgage rates tend to shy away from additional buying once these winning streaks get to be more than 7 days long. With all of the above in mind, our potential 7th winning day in a

By Moti Nissani They’ll talk about change, about politics, about reform, about corruption, but they will never talk about war unless they mean something happening far away.

Mortgage rates were mixed today, depending on the lender. On average, rates were unchanged and remained very close to their lowest levels in nearly 2 months. The bond market (which most directly impacts day-to-day rate movement) was calm. Both of today's important economic reports came in weaker than expected, but close enough to forecasts to prevent significant volatility. Beyond that, questions remain about just how ready the bond market may be to react to economic reports in general (historically one of the quintessential reaction functions in financial markets). If bonds aren't quite ready to link back up with economic data yet, it would be an issue of timing and priorities . Several Fed speakers reminded us today that we're still a long way from even being able to assess the post-pandemic
