Mortgage rates worsen towards the end of the week, and the trend is continuing today with the Stock Market rallying. But rates will bounce for the next few days in anticipation of Friday's Job Numbers. We are in locking mode, taking advantage of good rate gains and not gambling into the Jobs data on Friday.

Last week was a spectacular week for mortgage rates. As the Federal Reserve indicated that they will NOT raise rates in 2019 and may only raise rates 1x in 2020. Further concern about a recession is keep rates lower. Economic news is pointing towards a slow down, and past Fed Chairman came out today and actually indicated that the Fed may have to lower rates again. RATE ARE GREAT!

Mortgage Rate jumped last week, as the US and China are releasing positive responses to the Trade Dispute. Although we have quite a bit of economic news this week, with Unemployment on Friday being the biggest, I think China and Trade are going to be the major influence on Mortgage Rates this week.

Mortgage rates managed to squeak out a small improvement last week, but we are starting out this week worsening, as Trump extended Tariff hold and it looks like there could be a Trade Deal with China. This could be bad for rates as a good trade deal with ROCK the Stocks and typically sends bonds yields higher, which will send mortgage rates higher.

Mortgage rates trended higher last week as rumors of a trade deal with China popped up. All eyes will be on China and trade deal. If we get a trade deal, Stocks should shoot up and mortgage rates should also rise. And also watch the Brexit news, this will be a rate influences as well.

Mortgage rates improved, again, last week, as concerns about China & Trade weighted on the markets. We also have Shut Down talks influencing markets. If we get a resolution, then stocks will rally and bonds will sell off, thus raising interest rates. But on the flip, a shutdown will more than likely improve rates. It will be all about the TWEETS!

Mortgage rates worsened towards the end of last week, but still showed an overall improvement. Today we are seeing rates worsen and inflation is back in the news. Rates are pretty good, this will will either set a nice floor or make a breakout to higher numbers.

Mortgage rates worsened a little last week, and stock rallied for 5 days. I am thinking rates may worsen this week as well, with a potential China resolution on trade coming and Companies start announcing last quarter earnings. We also have housing data, inflation data, and Retail Sales for December. If all of these are good, Stocks should rally which will drive mortgage rates higher.

Another GREAT week for rates, as we have seen rate trend lower for 9 weeks! We are going to because a little more cautious as Trade talks with China seem to be making progress and there might be a little give/take in government shutdown.

Mortgage rates improved last week, as volatility in the stock market is sending investors to Bonds and Mortgage Back Securities. Although a short trading week, we do have unemployment numbers and more important wage inflation being released at the end of the week. Also word out is progress on China Trade. This could break our trend and cause stock to rally.
