Mortgage Rates For May 03, 2019

Mortgage rates for May 03, 2019 will finish off the week at similar levels to where we started the week after a stronger than expected Employment report.

Economic Data This Week:

Today we have we have the BLS Employment report and ISM-Non Manufacturing report.

Employment Report:

Expectations were for 185,000 jobs created and increase of 0.3% in wages and an unemployment rate of 3.8%. The final reading was 263,000 jobs created 0.2% increase in wages and a 3.6% unemployment rate.

Bonds sold off significantly post report but have since returned to previous levels (10y moved to 2.577% then back down to 2.55%)

ISM-Non Manufacturing Report:

The ISM-Non Manufacturing report is released at 10am EST. We’ll update the post after the report if there is a significant market reaction. Expectations are for a reading of 57.00 and last months reading was 56.1.

Economic Data Next Week:

Next week is a recovery week! Very little economic data being released. On Wednesday we have the weekly Mortgage Market Index and a 10 year Note Auction. On Thursday we have the Core Producer Prices report and a 30 year Bond Auction. On Friday we have the CPI report (important for mortgage rates).

The Core Producer Prices report can sometimes  have an impact on bond markets and mortgage rates but the Consumer Price Index report its still one of the three most important economic reports (for mortgage rates) to watch. A strong CPI number could push mortgage rates higher while a weaker number will allow mortgage rates to stay in the current lower level range.
