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 ticked up again, for the 3rd Straight week. With focus again on inflation, Federal Reserve unwinding of their bond purchase and slower retail sales. This week we will have lots of housing data coming in as well as more tariffs. Probably another bad week for bonds and mortgage rates.

As anticipated, rates went up last week, and economic data and geopolitics pointed to higher rates. This week has started out kind of scary, and we have a pretty good jump in the in the 10 Year Bond Yield, and Mortgage Back Securities, which both broke through some pretty good resistance levels. It looks like most traders sold bonds and stocks, thus going into cash with the worry about additional tariffs against China and Canada. This week will also have unemployment numbers. Not going to be a good week for rates.

Mortgage rates last week were pretty much flat, as there was hardly any unexpected news and all data came in as expected. Fed did say they are going to continue to increase rates so I would say 100% of a September .25 and 90% of another .25 in December. Quite a bit of economic news this week, including a bunch of inflation numbers. AND more important news about NAFTA.

We started last week with a nice improvement with Rates, then things cooled off in Turkey and we gave most of the improvement back, managed to squeak out a slight rate improvement. Over the weekend Turkey's bonds got cut to Junk status, thus putting EU banks in a little trouble. Money is moving from EU to the US and will keep our rates improving. Trump Tweets off the table, rates are all about Turkey now, and watch out for news from Italy...again, which might improve our rates also.

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.
