Mortgage Rates Lower From Bevy of Bond Buying Abroad

By Stevie Duffin Updated on 1/30/2015

Mortgage bonds are in more positive territory today, rather unaffected by the higher Chicago PMI reading and happy employment numbers this morning, and instead boosted by the bevy of bond buying abroad. Watch for dropping mortgage interest rates. 

Thursday: December pending home sales data was released today, showing a drop of 3.4 percent, the largest decline since December of 2013. In more promising news, weekly jobless claims declined to the lowest point in about 15 years. The data is relatively skewed since it measured unemployment filings for the week of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, but nonetheless points to a healing labor market. 

Mortgage backed security trading paid little attention to the data, however, and continue to move sideways to weak. Watch for static or rising mortgage interest rates.
