MBS RECAP: Another Chance to Not Get Your Hopes Up

Posted To: MBS Commentary

Tiny pockets of gains have come and gone in the vast sea of red that's dominated 2018 so far. Each pocket has attempted to lure optimists into a "bull trap." In other words, originators want to be bullish on rates, so they're more likely to take the best available opportunities to get bullish--especially if no such opportunities have presented themselves recently. Unfortunately, we're in a pervasive uptrend in rates, and what look like tiny pockets of opportunity have actually been periodic consolidations that help the selling-spree catch its breath before rates continue higher. Is it the same story with the past 2 days of stability? In all likelihood. Granted, the bear case for bonds is i ncreasingly being priced-in , discussed, and understood among traders, but in this...(read more)

Mortgage Rates Catch a Break Before Long Weekend

Posted To: Mortgage Rate Watch

Financial markets in the US will be closed for President's Day on Monday. Thus, mortgage lenders will not be open, nor will they be accepting locks. Given that mortgage rates took the road less traveled in 2018 and actually moved lower, it's worth having a chat with your mortgage professional if you have a loan in process. Of course, many of you may not be reading this until after the lock window has passed for today, so let's take a look at next week's risks and opportunities . The biggest risk is the same one that's been with us all year. Simply put, rates have been trending higher in a steady but highly convicted fashion, quickly adding a half a percentage point or more to the average 30yr fixed rate quote. As we've been saying all year, it doesn't make sense to bet against that trend until...(read more)

Fannie Mae: So Now Things are Moving Too Fast?

Posted To: MND NewsWire

Some people are never happy . For most of the ten years following the start of the Great Recession the experts have focused (can we say harped?) on the theme of a slow recovery. Now, after a couple of upticks in the inflation rate, Fannie Mae has headlined its February Economic Developments release "Strong Economic Activity Triggers Overheating Concerns." The company's Economic and Strategic Research Team say economic activity gathered momentum over the last few months and "markets are beginning to appreciate the broader implications of the stronger growth. That realization, along with a change in the direction of monetary policy has introduced some volatility into the economic equation. There were finally some signs that wages were increasing which pushed inflation measures such as 10-year...(read more)

Posted by Realty Associated on January 20, 2013 at 11:39am 0 Comments
