The FNMA 30-Year 4.5% MBS coupon is currently trading at 100.34 - down 8/32 from its opening. Remember, on mortgage backed securities (MBSs), as the price goes down, the yield goes up - and so do mortgage interest rates. I expect that mortgage interest rates will be 0.25% - 0.50% worse in price this morning as compared to Friday.

What's Happening With Mortgage Interest Rates Today:

Moderate to high volatility. Overall, it will most likely be an active - and volatile - week for the mortgage market. You can expect a lot of volatility in mortgage interest rates this week. The most volatile day of the week most likely will be Thursday with the release of the preliminary 3rd Quarter GDP and the results of the 7-Year Note auction.

My Mortgage Interest Rate Lock Advice for Today:

If I were considering financing/refinancing a home, I would...

  • Lock if my closing was taking place within the next 7 days
  • Lock if my closing was taking place between 8 and 30 days
  • Float if my closing was taking place between 31 and 45 days
  • Float if my closing was taking place between 46 and 60 days

This is only my opinion of what I would do if I were financing a home. It is only an opinion and cannot be guaranteed to be in the best interest of any or all other borrowers.
