Mortgage rates are on a cusp of jumping quite a bit higher, as the 10 year Bond and the Mortgage Bonds are close to making a jump, which would allow rates to jump in to the mid 5%.  We are going to watch Federal Reserve decision on Thusday, not for a rate increase, but for what their policy statement is.  Then on Friday we will have Producer Price Index, or inflation at the producer level, and also this week the US is going to sell of more of our debt, which will influence rates also.  Gonig to be another roller coaster week for rates, with the consensus that rates will increase.
