Austin mortgage borrowers are advised to lock their Austin mortgage rates and get out of the way as the risk reward is not in your favor

Not advocating a new trend change to higher Austin mortgage rates, just a hold-steady type of market. When this kind of environment is at hand, Austin mortgage borrowers are advised to lock their Austin mortgage rates and get out of the way as the risk reward is not in your favor.

Short term, Austin mortgage borrowers are encouragerd to stay defensive

Short term, Austin mortgage borrowers are encouragerd to stay defensive. Fast money is selling the long end of the curve, dragging the 10 year note along with it. Not a lot of downside is expected from here. The week ahead will feature Case Shiller Home Prices, Consumer Confidence, Durable Goods, Weekly Claims, and GDP on Friday.

Not to say we will not see lower Austin mortgage rates and better pricing but for that to come to fruition, we’ll need a major catalyst

Not to say we will not see lower Austin mortgage rates and better pricing but for that to come to fruition, we’ll need a major catalyst. Something like a stock market rout or collapse of Greece. In English, the smart money will bet against this, at least for a corrective trade that could take the 10 year note back to 3.25%. Pricing was struck with MBS unchanged, now down 5/32’s. Trigger fingers are getting twitchy.

New Home Sales gains also smell of the last mad rush for 8K in buyers credit money before we put that program to bed the end of next week

New Home Sales were also released, up 26.9% to 411K annual units. The print blew away economists estimates of plus 330K. Every region of the country rebounded with the “South rising again”, up 43% month on month. Although the numbers were great, they are coming off the worst month (February) in 22 years. The gains also smell of the last mad rush for 8K in buyers credit money before we put that program to bed the end of next week.

With current levels at 3.77%, the market needs to boot strap itself back together or further downside (worsening mortgage pricing) will occur

Today’s day-end close will be very important. We need to hold 116 22/64th on the futures chart (yield equivalent is 3.75%) to feel better about the range trade continuing. With current levels at 3.77%, the market needs to boot strap itself back together or further downside (worsening mortgage pricing) will occur.
