Today’s Mortgage Rates Are Up As Mortgage Bonds Drop

July 1, 2009

Daily Mortgage Updates

A&N Mortgage Logo1 July 2009 ? Bonds ended down yesterday by 34bps, which increased mortgage interest rates. When bonds are down, mortgage interest rates go up?when bonds are up mortgage rates go down! The Dow is up 99 and is enjoying a modest rally. This morning has been filled with news and we will start with China reporting that the manufacturing sector has expanded for the 4th straight month. The Dow Jones was up 15% from April to June however these gains were from very low levels in the stock market. ADP?s estimated job losses were worse than expected and the numbers may not even be accurate as the US Government is hiring 1.4 million workers to conduct the 2010 Census. It is not clear when or how many of these hires will be or have been made in any month. As you can see, if we knew this information (when the job creations hit) we could get an better reading on employment, even though these jobs are temporary. This would portray a picture of better employment numbers than what really exists.
Today the bond market opened down 22bps and is now only down 3bps. The official jobs-lost report will come out tomorrow which could have an effect on the bond market. Again rates were very good a couple of days ago and if you read my post hopefully you took advantage and locked in your mortgage rate!
