Mostly Flat After Initial Weakness
5/20/2024 2:33 PM
Mostly Flat After Initial Weakness There"s a risk that a theme will emerge in the coming days, but a theme that only matters to people who write daily commentary on the bond market.  It involves an absence of new, interesting things to say as well as plenty of repetition. If today was any indication, t...Read More
Mortgage Rates Close Enough to Unchanged Over The Weekend
5/20/2024 2:22 PM
Mortgage rates moved modestly higher on the two days at the end of last week.  This put an end to a decent winning streak that had been in place since the beginning of the month, but it stopped well short of undoing much of the progress.  Technically, today"s average mortgage rates are higher for a third straight business day, but most p...Read More

Greetings from the Arch MI meeting room space! Heard in the hallways here at the MBA’s Secondary conference in Manhattan: “Our loan officers are telling their clients, ‘Yeah, the best time to buy a house was five years ago. The second-best time is… now.’” People’s memories are short, no one writes about how our industry helped millions of people du...Read More
Slightly Weaker to Start Super Slow Week
5/20/2024 10:16 AM
It"s not too common to refer to a week with Fed meeting minutes as "super slow," but at the risk of complacency, how could the Fed possibly share any new ideas three weeks ago (the minutes are from the May 1st meeting) amid what has been a vast sea of Fed comments since then?  Moreover, how could any Fed member say anything to surprise th...Read More
Moderate, Inconsequential Weakness
5/17/2024 2:31 PM
Moderate, Inconsequential Weakness Bonds lost ground at a modest to moderate clip on Friday, but not for any interesting or obvious reasons.  The selling has been very linear over the past 2 trading days with Treasury yields fitting neatly inside a simple trend channel.  There is perhaps some smal...Read More
Mortgage Rates Continue Higher For 2nd Straight Day
5/17/2024 2:11 PM
Mortgage rates have had a great month of May so far with almost every day being a winner up until yesterday and today.  Even then, the 2 day losing streak began from the lowest levels in just over 5 weeks.  Perhaps more importantly, apart from the past 2 days, today"s rates would still be the lowest in more than a month. In other words, ...Read More

We’re only a few days away from the MBA’s Capital Markets Conference. Attendees, don’t forget to pick up your badges, or else! (Speaking of interesting clips, watch U.S. Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken launch the Global Music Diplomacy Initiative; there is a rumor he’ll be on the stage at the next MBA conference.) One of the big topics next we...Read More
11 Day Weekend Starts Now
5/17/2024 10:12 AM
Friday"s only scheduled economic report is the Conference Board"s Leading Economic Indicators (LEI) index.  It is not considered a timely market mover and it had no impact this morning despite coming in at -0.6 vs -0.3 forecast.  The slate of scheduled data isn"t much better next week.  The only report with a track record of signific...Read More
Gradual Weakness All Day And a Quieter Calendar Ahead
5/16/2024 4:00 PM
Gradual Weakness All Day And a Quieter Calendar Ahead Today brought the last of the scheduled economic data until the end of next week.  Even then, the data won"t be too relevant for at least 2 weeks when the next PCE price index comes out.  Ironically, we"ve always considered Import Price data to...Read More
Mortgage Rates Start Sideways But Move Higher in The Afternoon
5/16/2024 3:18 PM
On the average day in the mortgage market, the average lender will offer the same mortgage rate terms for the entire day.  It"s only when the underlying bond market moves enough that lenders will make mid-day adjustments.  Today was one of those days and it involved a reprice to slightly higher levels. For now, this is still fairly incon...Read More
