Mortgage Rates For December 31, 2018

Last Updated on

The Last Day Of 2018:

Mortgage rates will be similar to Friday on the last day of 2018. Mortgage Backed Securities are slightly negative to start the day and the 10y yield is up just a bit from Friday’s close. 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 Mortgage Home InformationManufacturing 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.

The Government Shutdown Continues:

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.
