Three things that could impact rates this week


Today's Mortgage Rate Summary

How Rates Move:

Conventional and Government (FHA and VA) lenders set their rates based on the pricing of Mortgage-Backed Securities (MBS) which are traded in real time, all day in the bond market. This means rates or loan fees (mortgage pricing) moves throughout the day, being affected by a variety of economic or political events. When MBS pricing goes up, mortgage rates or pricing generally goes down. When they fall, mortgage pricing goes up.

Rates Currently Trending: Neutral

Mortgage rates are moving sideways today. The MBS market improved by +8 bps last week. This was not enough to decrease mortgage rates or fees. The market experienced high volatility last week.

This week's Rate Forecast: Higher

Three Things: These are the three areas that have the greatest ability to impact rates this week: 1) The Fed, 2) Inflation and 3) Central Banks.

1) The Fed: We will get the Fed's latest Interest Rate Decision and Policy Statement this Wednesday at 2 pm ET, followed by a live presser with Fed Chair Powell at 2:30 pm. The bond market will focus on their release of their Economic Projections.

2) Inflation: We will get both CPI and PPI this week with the markets giving the most weight to MOM Core CPI Wednesday morning. Bond yields are very sensitive to changes in inflation.

3) Central Banks: We will hear from the Bank of Japan on Friday which had increased their key interest rate two meetings ago.

Treasury Auction: Here is this week's auction schedule with Thursday's 30Y auction getting the most weight from bond traders:

06/10 3 year note

06/11 10 year note

06/13 30 year bond

This week's Potential Rate Volatility: High

This morning markets are moving sideways. Volatility has started at moderate levels with choppy trading in a narrow channel. Volatility will increase later in the week.

Bottom Line:

If you are looking for the risks and benefits of locking your interest rate in today or floating your loan rate, contact your mortgage professional to discuss it with them.
