Mortgage rates in Boise & Nampa sank just a little last week, as more data is pointing to a recession, and Trump continues to Tweet. Watch the recession news, not the Federal Reserve News, as we see rates continue to slide this week.

Rough week for mortgage rates, as economic news all pointed to NO Recession coming causing rate to increase by .30 of a point. This week, with the attack on oil, rates are improving a little, but we will have to see if it is stable or now. We are definitely in a locking mode.

Mortgage rates continue to climb based on economic news and the stock market. We have seen Stocks hit lifetime highs each week now for quite a few weeks, as investors flee bonds and put money into this RED HOT stock market.

Mortgage rates last week were pretty flat, squeaking out a minimal .06 reduction.  This week we are in a neutral stance, mainly because the Federal Reserve meets this week.  And although we do not anticipate a rate hike, we do expect some guidance on unwinding their balance sheet and by how much.  This will include the Fed NOT purchasing any more mortgage back securities (MBS).  The Fed has been purchasing MBS  for 8+ years now, keeping mortgage rates artificially low.  As they start to NOT purchase MBS and also potentially selling MBS, we will see rates become even more volatile, thus rising with the markets, instead of being influenced by the Federal Reserve.

Mortgage rates ticked up again last week, mainly on GeoPolitics, but we did get some interest news out of the Federal Reserve. Starting in September, they will quit buy Mortgage Back Securities (MBS), and also start to sell MBS. If this becomes the new norm, we are finally going to see mortgage rate NOT be influenced down by the Government, and they will finally, after 9 years, be traded evenly with the market. Thus...wait for it...rates will finally trend to where they should be, in the high 4's to low 5's.
