Daily Mortgage Updates

A&N Mortgage Logo13 July 2009 ? Today mortgage-backed bonds opened down 6bps and are currently down 9bps. There has not been much volatility today with the bond market, but everyone is holding their breath for the earnings to come out which I had mentioned in last week’s daily update. We are in a holding pattern to see what the earnings will be?if they are positive the stock market may rally, which will negatively impact the bond market and mortgage rates may rise slightly. If earnings are not as good as expected, we may see the opposite with investors seeking the safety of bonds and rates may continue to go lower. So the waiting game continues right now. Stocks are up nicely today with the Dow Jones up 121.

The 30 year rate continues to be 4.875% to 5.25%. Also, for consumers who may not be in their homes too long you should always consider the 10/1 Arm.
