Just a heads up as the 10 year note has taken a turn for the nurse, now off 13/32’s

Just a heads up as the 10 year note has taken a turn for the nurse, now off 13/32’s. The 30 year bond is down 23/32’s as well, both products of a stock market that’s revved it up a bit. The Dow is up 180 points while the Naz is plus 44 points. Mortgage backs are holding steady albeit off 2/32’s. Typically, if the 10 year note holds at current lower levels, mortgage backs are bound to “catch up.”

Austin Mortgage Market Update – For the week of May 17, 2010

Last Tuesday the National Association of Realtors (NAR) reported the Q1 median price for existing homes was up in 91 out of 152 metro areas compared to a year ago, showing the housing market is starting to stabilize. This was a nice gain over Q4 of last year when prices were up in only about 40% of the cities tracked. Even more encouraging, the percentage price increases in 29 cities were in double-digits.

A tug of war for Austin mortgage interest rates seems in the cards

Austin mortgage rates and pricing can go one way or the other in short order but most likely hold steady at current levels. Best to stay on defense as stocks certainly look better, Europe looks better, and the Federal Reserve Chairman hints of Fed Funds rate hikes sooner than later. Personally, we like the chart (better chance of lower Austin mortgage rates/better pricing) but the fundamentals (economic data) points to a steady recovery. A tug of war for Austin mortgage interest rates seems in the cards.

This has been one of the more dramatic down drafts we’ve seen in some time, reminding us of just how powerful and heartless the market can be

As we head into the last half hour of trading, price action has been a one-way affair and looking to close at the worst levels of the day. Mortgage backs are now off over 1 point as the 10 year note trades a 3.85% yield (down 43/32’s). Just for good measure, the 30 year bond is off over 3 points. This has been one of the more dramatic down drafts we’ve seen in some time, reminding us of just how powerful and heartless the market can be.

No news but a lot of action as the new week begins. Gold has made a new high, trading above $1100.00, commodities on the rise, and the dollar down against almost every major currency in the world. Oil has rebounded, trading at $79.50 (up over $2.00), as the approach of Hurricane Ida has traders on edge. Stocks got a lift from Europe and Asia with the Dow currently up 130 points. Bonds, notes, and MBS continue to hold up well despite 101 billion in supply coming this week.
