Mortgage rates will be similar to yesterday on the last Friday of 2018. Bond yields and Mortgage Backed Securities are at similar levels to yesterday despite a significant turn around in stocks. It’s great to see the 10y yield stay below 2.82% as stocks continue to rally. Today we have the Chicago PMI report, Pending Home Sales and Crude Oil Inventories. As mentioned yesterday, next week the market closes early on Monday; and remains closed on Tuesday. Mortgage companies and markets re-open on Wednesday. There are no important economic reports on Wednesday however on Thursday we have the ADP National Employment Report for December, ISM New York Index for December, ISM Manufacturing PMI, ISM Manufacturing Prices Paid for December (an important piece when it comes to inflation) and Vehicle Sales. To end the week we have the BLS Employment report, unemployment rate and Average Earnings for the month of December.
There was some concern that we may not get the BLS employment report due to the government shutdown however that is not the case; they’ve confirmed they will be able to release their report. As for the government shutdown it appears that it will go into 2019 and may last for some time if neither side budges on what they want. So far it seems like the Treasury market and the Mortgage Backed Securities market are shrugging off the shut down however not sure if that would be the case if it last for weeks or even months.

30 year fixed mortgage rates below 4.375%, 20 year fixed mortgage rates below 4.25% and 15 year fixed rates below 3.625%.
