Daily Mortgage Updates

A&N Mortgage Logo13 August 2009 ? The bond market is currently up 19 bps today, however volatility looms with the Treasury auction later today. The retail sales numbers came in lower than expected -.1% versus .8%. Also initial jobless claims number soured the stock markets which both reports helped to push bonds higher. The initial jobless claim number was expected to be 545,000 but came in at 558,000. This is better than the 22 weeks of more than 600,000 which was reported. We have now had three successive weeks under 600,000, but have people found jobs or have they fell off the extended claims benefit?the opinion is the latter has happened.
The Dow is currently up 18. The current 30 year fixed is approximately 5.25%.
