About the Mortgage Market Index
The U.S. Mortgage Market Index launched on Dec. 17, 2009.

The index itself reflects the average number of rate locks each week per OpenClose originator-user. The index is an excellent indicator of upcoming mortgage production.

A byproduct of the Mortgage Market Index is a full report each week that includes the latest mortgage rates, refinancing trends and other important mortgage data.
