Mortgage Rates 8-21-15

By Lisa Robison Updated on 8/21/2015

What will rates do next? Mortgage professionals are voting in our daily poll.

Global risk-aversion has dragged yields even lower today. They are now at the lowest rates in 3 months.  Having said that, bonds are not looking like they want to improve without a major panic in the global outlook.  Treasuries and Mortgage Backed Securities had a decent rally. The stock markets are nearing a "Death Cross" which, in the stock world, refers to a 50-day movement average falls below a 200-day average, which usually precipitates more movement.  What all this means is that bonds are gearing up to do some long-awaited selling.  For the past several weeks, we have seen this bouncing back and forth between improvement and worsening in the rates, and this trend is looking to continue in the short term.  As far as buyers on the fence, this may be a good time to lock, and in the instance that a shift occurs down the line, there's always the refinance option.
