With the stock market continuing to tank, investors are fleeing to safe haven like bonds, which has been improving mortgage rates for 2 weeks now. Lots of inflation news this week, and also watch China, these are going to be the 2 major rate influences for this week.

Rates jumped again last week, as inflation number set in and we saw some declining housing numbers as well. Federal Reserve also released their notes, and all number point to continued inflation concerns, which is going to make the Fed raise their rates as well. We saw on Thursday a little weakness out of Europe, which prevented rates from even being worse last week. No reason to think rates are going to fall.

Mortgage rates got a reprieve last week, but only because Italy can't get its act together, if it wasn't for that, rates would of worsened for the 5th week in a row. We are still at highest levels since September 2011. This week is a biggy, with wage inflation on everyone's mind. I suspect a tepid week, until Friday when we see unemployment numbers and wage inflation numbers.

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.

Mortgage rates are trending lower as traders are still trying to digest Friday's Job Numbers.  Was it low because business are not hiring or was it low because there are no workers.  I am of opinion of the latter, the US is at full employment, and thus wages are going to have to increase, thus inflation, and inflation is bad for Rates.  Today, we have Trump Tweeting about various items which is causing rates to decrease.  I am pretty cautious this week, as rates are in a position to break out and increase, but watch out on Trade Tweets.  Special note, we do get CPI or Consumer Price Index, which is gauge on inflation, all eyes will be focused on this report this week.
