Today's Mortgage Rates

United States MBA 30-Yr Mortgage Rate


Mortgage Rate in the United States averaged 6.32 percent from 1990 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 10.56 percent in April of 1990 and a record low of 3.47 percent in December of 2012. Today's average rate is 4.49%

Mortgage Rates Bounce Back
 
Apr 12 2018, 6:29PM


A day after hitting the lowest levels in more than 2 months, mortgage rates bounced back up today.  The good news is that they didn't land too far from yesterday's levels in the grand scheme of things, and are still technically closer to the bottom of their March/April range. 
Part of today's reversal had to do with the fact that bonds are caught up in market movements that follow geopolitical risk.  Specifically, to whatever extent some sort of military confrontation with Syria and Russia looked imminent yesterday, rates benefited because some investors were seeking safe havens in the bond market.  Excess demand for bonds pushes rates lower.  When Trump pushed back on that notion overnight, the safe haven trade went the other way.  

Syria is more of a diversion when it comes to rate movements.  Granted, it could end up being a big deal, but it's just a talking point for now.  The broader issue of the potential trade war has been doing more to influence stocks and bonds.  Then today, the culmination of this week's Treasury auction process (scheduled sales of the government debt that drives interest rate momentum in the US) accounted for specific pressure on bond markets.  The net effect was only as modest as it was because the bonds that underlie mortgage rates are a degree of separation removed from Treasuries.  From there, mortgage lenders are another degree further removed.  If we look directly at Treasuries, we see that it was the worst day of losses in over a month and thus, a warning about a potential shift in the relatively friendly rate momentum of late.
