Still watching the 10 Year Treasury to see if there is any indication that rates might come down. Today the Dow soared 272 points to close over 11,000. This is great news by itself…
The 10 Year Treasury rose 5.31% closing at 1.9040. Keep in mind, even though it increased – it is still extremely low.
The 10 Year Treasury is heading in the wrong direction to bring mortgage rates even lower, but as you can see the 10 year Treasury moves a lot more than the mortgage rates do. The 10 Year treasury may yet drop and bring the mortgage rates down. Time will tell. As of today, the 10 year treasury is going up and the mortgage rates have not changed: (oh bummer, we appear to be stuck at record low interest rates.)
