Mortgage Rate Review September 4, 2009 (Chart)

Mortgage Rates continued their nine (9) day accent posting 375bp for the week. Friday was the only negative day with the FNMA 30 YR 4.5% giving up only 9bp on a quiet day before the Holiday weekend.  The positive gains can be attributed to the negative pull back in the equities market. The DOW gave up 1% for the week, and unemployment rate for August increased to 9.7%, that’s the highest since June of 1983.

This is a very interesting time in our economy, if the financial markets continue to sell off, expect rates to stay low. If we see a bounce back in the equities market watch for mortgage rates to rise fast. This so called recovery feels and look eerily similar to the 2002 head fake.  Believe me I am not a bear although this run since last September’s catastrophic collapse of the markets.
