Daily Mortgage Updates

A&N Mortgage Logo22 July 2009 ? Bonds had an excellent rally yesterday ending up 69 BPS which helped to gain back some of the previous losses. The bonds were pressured by the stock markets that had gains over the past week?the S&P and the Dow both had nice gains. Today the bond market opened down 9bps and is currently down 16bps. The bonds have levels of support and we are in an area if we can stabilize the rates can remain at the 5% to 5.25% range for the 30 year. The DOW and S&P may retreat a bit after the strong run and this morning the financial markets are weighing down on stocks after worse than expected earnings by Morgan Stanley. Wells Fargo reported good earnings but the outlook going forward comments were not that strong. The tip of the day would be to consider looking at your mortgage rate and to look to see if you can comfortably move into a 15-year or 10-year fixed rate. They are in the mid 4% range and when shortening your loan term you save thousands of dollars.
