Mortgage rates ended higher last week by 0.02, not much, could of been worse, as the Federal Reserve indicated that they will continue to raise rates, which indicates they see inflation on the horizon.  And inflation is BAD for mortgage rate!

Mortgage rates are still trending up, as last weeks wage inflation numbers was not pretty. This week we also have more wage inflation in the Consumer Price Index or CPI, which will really dictate rates. This will be the most looked at report this week. We also have the US selling debt in the form of Treasury auctions that will play a roll in rates as well. Anticipating rates worsening this week.

Rates traded in a very narrow channel last week, with them overall improving just slightly. This was mainly due to Trump and Trade. This week it will again be about Trade and Trump's Tweets. Economic reports this week mainly focus on Housing with Starts, Permits and Existing Home Sales.

With Spain and Italy cooling off, and the threat of higher tariffs, inflation is back in the news. Traders are looking towards more economic reports this week to guage inflation again. We are seeing rates trend back up, but this could all change with 1 tweet.

WOW, mortgage rates improved over the last few days, fueled by the major drop in Oil, and our old friend Italy is back in the news with a collapsing economy, which has the potential of taking down the EU. And then Trade Wars are back, with the US threatening 25% tariffs on electronics made in China. And lets not forget Israel & Iran trading shots. All of these items and pushing traders into bonds, which will drive down mortgage rates.

Mortgage rates are pretty stuck in a narrow trading band, and really economic news is going to be ignored this week as all eyes are going to focus on Iran and Oil. If Oil takes a spike that will be bad negative for interest rates, because it directly influences inflation, but if there is a hint of a military conflict, then traders will go to bonds, thus balancing out the two trades.
