Mortgage Rates 5-1-15

By Carolina Palmer Updated on 5/1/2015

What will mortgage interest rates do tomorrow? Mortgage professionals are voting in our daily poll. The ISM manufacturing index for April came in relatively flat at 51.5% instead of the expected 52.2%. Any reading above 50% indicates growth, no matter how slow that growth may be. Additionally, MBS are at their weakest levels in a month and a half. The month of April saw mortgage rates stay within a narrow range.

Thursday: MBS are still being pushed into weaker territory due to activity in Europe's bond market, although the effect is not as strong as it was yesterday. There were two pieces of economic data this morning, which were overall positive. Jobless claims came in at 262k instead of the forcasted 290k. Also, the Employment Cost Index indicated an increase in wage growth. It advanced 0.7% which has been the largest gain since Q3 of 2014.
