Mortgage Rates Start Week Near Long-Term Lows

Mar 11 2019, 3:59PM

Mortgage rates were roughly unchanged to begin the week.  That means they are staying in line with the lowest levels in more than a year.  Only 2 or 3 days have been any better, depending on the lender, and the differences are minimal. 

It's refreshing to see rates near long-term lows after somewhat of a scare 2 weeks ago.  Heading into March 1st, rates rose at their quickest pace in more than a month.  In so doing, they were also potentially breaking out of a sideways range that had dominated most of 2019.  When rates break such ranges, it's not uncommon for them to keep moving in the direction of the break.  In other words, we may have been looking at the beginning of a bigger move toward higher rates.

Thankfully, last week saw a complete reversal of the negative momentum.  This restored the previous range and it leaves us to wait for the next breakout.  Such a breakout could be caused by a combination of various economic reports or any major surprises in next week's Federal Reserve policy announcement.  In general, when we're near the lowest part of the range, there has been more risk that rates will move higher in the following days.  That said, if the economic data is weak, rates could hold their ground or even improve.
