Mortgage Rates December 3, 2018

The 10y yield opened the day at the 3.04% level and Mortgage Backed Securities (MBS) opened in negative territory following the announcement that there will be a temporary trade “truce” between the United States and China as a result mortgage rates will be under pressure this morning. Bonds have sold off while stocks and oil have moved higher.

November was a great month for the bond market and mortgage rates and that trend might continue if the economic data continues to weaken. If it doesn’t weaken and the exact opposite happens look for a repeat of September where yields moved from the 2.80% level all the way up to 3.20%.
