Mortgage Rates Poised for New Lows

10-year Treasury yield sinks

By SAM GARCIA Mortgage Daily

Oct. 6, 2010

A key benchmark for mortgage rates -- the yield on the 10-year Treasury Note -- sank today, leaving mortgage rates poised to set a new record.

During trading today, the yield on the 10-year Treasury Note was 2.375 percent, according to data reported by The price, which moves in the opposite direction as the yield, was 28/32 higher.

Mortgage rates, which are packaged into bonds -- or mortgage-backed securities -- move with bond yields. Prices on mortgage bonds filled with fixed-rate mortgages are heavily influenced by the yield on the 10-year Treasury Note.

A week ago, the 10-year yield was 2.52 percent, based on data reported by the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

Freddie Mac reported last week that the 30-year fixed rate stood at a record-low 4.32 percent.

Today's Treasury activity suggests the 30-year could fall below 4.20 percent.
