Mortgage Rates 5-6-15

By Carolina Palmer Updated on 5/6/2015

What will mortgage interest rates do tomorrow? Mortgage professionals are voting in our daily poll. ADP released employment for April today, which fell lower than expectations. There were 169,000 private sector jobs created in April instead of the predicted 205,000. Another factor pushing MBS into weaker territory is the German bund sell-off, which has been the largest in 10 years. Expect mortgage rates to continue to increase, as they have been doing so for the past week and a half.

Check back Thursday for the weekly initial jobless claims; Friday all the April data will be released including non-farm payrolls, private payrolls, unemployment rate, manufacutirng payrolls, and average workweek hours.

Tuesday: The Institute for Supply Management released its non-manufacturing purchasing managers index for April, which came in strongly at 57.8 vs. the forecasted 56.3. On the other hand, the US trade deficit jumped up 43% in March to $51.5 billion. The trade deficit data caused a small rally. The last important occurrence surrounded corporate debt. Abbvie made a $16.7 offering, which got more than $65 billion in bids. After the fluctuations caused by these pieces of data, mortgage rates have increased across the board, leading to new high yields and negaitve reprices from mortgage lenders.
