If there is a silver lining, you’ll find it in low Austin mortgage rates today, tomorrow, and well into the 3rd quarter

Overall, the report does nothing to instill confidence in economic growth. Matter of fact, it’s started a new group of traders and investors fanning the fires of a double dip recession. Bill Gross is now calling for unemployment to go over 10% in the coming months. If there is a silver lining, you’ll find it in low Austin mortgage rates today, tomorrow, and well into the 3rd quarter.

Austin mortgage pricing should remain relatively stable for most of the week and then worsen post Unemployment Report data on Friday

Looking at last week’s rally, most of the trade was on short covering which means that traders were not initiating new long positions (expecting the market to continue to rally). We buy that argument and if correct, we would suggest that you “buy the rumor, sell the news”. In English, this means that mortgage pricing should remain relatively stable for most of the week and then worsen post Unemployment Report data on Friday

In a nut shell, what we have here is too much money chasing too few assets that are worth owning

Weak dollar, higher oil, new high in gold, stocks near unchanged, and bonds doing a little better. We’re feeling a bit like Bill Murray in “Groundhog Day”. Same trade just a new day. One memorable line from the movie; (Phil) Do you know what today is? (Rita) No, what? (Phil) Today is tomorrow. It happened. In a nut shell, what we have here is too much money chasing too few assets that are worth owning. Throw in a mixed bag of economic data and a seasonal supportive 4th quarter (for fixed income), it’s hard to see much of a change in Austin mortgage rates into year end.
