“Mortgage Rates Moderately Higher”

From Matthew Graham at Mortgage News Daily: Mortgage Rates Start Lower, But Could See Some Volatility This WeekFor most lenders, mortgage rates edged slightly higher at the start of the holiday-shortened week. The exception would be among those lenders who made changes to their rate offerings on Friday afternoon in response to deteriorating market conditions. The unequivocal comparison would be with Friday morning’s rates, in which case today’s rates are higher.

Looking ahead, the bond market will be closed on Friday and open for only a half day on Thursday. Most mortgage lenders will not be updating rate sheets on Friday, and they will shy away from making big changes on Thursday unless massive market movement forces their hand.[30 year fixed 3.17%]
