Mortgage Rates Thanksgiving Week

Daily Mortgage Rate Update:

Thanksgiving week for mortgage rates is usually a stable period in which mortgage rates barely move. That being said; it’s not a guarantee and there have been times the market has moved. It’s unlikely the economic data will significantly move the market but if the market was to move significantly it would probably come from one or a combination of the following reasons:

  • China trade deal
  • Brexit
  • An unknown event

The China trade deal is the biggest risk for mortgage rates heading into the Thanksgiving holiday. A rock solid announcement that a “Phase One” deal has been reached will push mortgage rates higher. After the initial reaction to the deal markets will want know the details. If the “Phase One” deal is significant and the expectation is that it positively impact the economy than mortgage rates will probably continue to move higher as the bond marker would almost certainly sell off.

However, if the details showed the deal was limited in nature and most likely would have little to no impact on the economy you might start to see mortgage rates return to previous levels. That’s a big if and it could take months.

Wednesday is the big day for economic reports and we’ll get a good glimpse as to how the economy is performing heading into the 2019 holiday season.

I hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving!
