Inflation Jitters Impacting Today’s Mortgage Rates

July 14, 2009

Daily Mortgage Updates

A&N Mortgage Logo14 July 2009 ? Today the mortgage bonds opened up down 19bps. They are currently (1:00 p.m.) down 28bps in part because of a higher than expected wholesale inflation reading. The concern is that this may?emphasis on may?lead to inflation but that would take some time to determine. However bonds typically will react negatively to any indicating factors of inflation. Tomorrow?s Consumer?s Price Index (CPI) will give us a better idea of the impact of inflation to the consumer and could lead to the FED hiking the FED Funds Rate. We will be monitoring this reading closely tomorrow as mortgage rates could spike up and when they start to rise they typically do so quickly.
