MORTGAGE BOND/RATE ALERT!
Mortgage bonds are down big within the last 45 minutes. We are LOCKING all in progress or floating clients immediately. This is a heads up that this is significant enough that we WILL see mid-day rates sheets re-price for the worse, across the board. Rates tomorrow should again be higher.
Moreover, this is primarily happening because of two things: 1) European Central Bank announcing plans to purchase debt in Spain & Italy (really only a short term solution), and 2) Fed Chairman Bernanke & indications he’s giving as to whether or not the Fed will do a 3rd round of Quantitative Easing (QE3).
See the live snapshot of conforming mortgages bond chart attached (last 3 months). Reminder that higher bond prices = lower rates, and vice versa. As you can see, today is a significant drop. Estimating rates could be ~.25% – .375% higher tomorrow morning, depending on how the rest of the day shapes up.
