Mortgage Rates Could Go Even Higher




Mortgage rates rose more noticeably today as a part of a 3 day bounce after hitting the lowest levels in roughly 3 months at the end of last week.  Whereas yesterday's increases weren't really worth mentioning, today's hurt--depending on the scenario.

In general, this bounce was to-be-expected.  Granted, we can't ever know exactly how big such bounces will be or how long they'll last, but when rates improve for as many days in a row as they recently had, a bounce is increasingly inevitable. 

So how bad is this one?  Not too bad so far.  I'm not thrilled about the "3 days" part, but really it's only been today that counts (the other two days were effectively flat).  As such, tomorrow and Friday become a bit more important by way of assessing any momentum ahead of next week's Fed Announcement (which will have the final say in rate momentum for the rest of the year).
