Conforming fixed mortgage rates and FHA fixed mortgage rates are benefiting from low bond yields as we move further into July. Mortgage rates for July 02, 2019 are stable and near multi-year lows.
News over the weekend that the US and China reached an agreement to not impose any new trade tariffs was potential bad news for mortgage rates on Monday. Good economic news is generally bad for mortgage rates (generally speaking).
The good news is that mortgages rates shrugged off the news and remain very attractive.

Economic Data This Week:
There are no major economic reports on Tuesday. On Wednesday the market closes early for July 4th however before that we have the Mortgage Market Index, ADP Employment Report, and the ISM Non-Manufacturing Report. On Friday we have the monthly Jobs report.
Tomorrow’s ADP report may impact mortgage rates. A stronger than expected report could push mortgage rates higher; a weaker report could push mortgage rates lower. Last month the report showed only 27,000 jobs created; the lowest number of jobs created this year and steep drop from the previous month.
Expectations for the ADP Employment report are for 140,000 jobs created however will we have another surprise and possibly see the report go negative? We’ll have to see what happens tomorrow but based on last months drop it could very well happen.
The bigger report will be the BLS Employment report. The number of jobs created and the wages component will be looked at closely. Expectations are for 160,000 jobs created and a 0.3% increase in wages. Last month expectations were for 180,000 jobs created however the reading came in at 75,000 jobs created.
If the number of jobs created comes in significantly lower than anticipated and wages come in lower then that might help keep mortgage rates low heading into next week.
