Refinances Lead Decline in Weekly Mortgage Business
Heading into the semi-holiday weekend, loan originators turned down the volume on new business. A bump in fixed rates dampened demand for refinances.

Mortgage Market Index 174 in week ended April 18

Declining Mortgage Rates Poised to Turn Higher
A nice improvement was reported this week for fixed mortgage rates. But some signs suggest an increase is in store for next week's report.

Mortgage Biz Jumps as Jumbo Rates Under Conforming
An overall improvement in mortgage rates had refinance inquiries surging more than 20 percent. But the bigger news this week was that interest rates on jumbo mortgages were less than conforming rates.

Mortgage Market Index 188 in week ended April 11

Mortgage Rates Improve, Might Fall More
Some worse-than-expected U.S. employment news placed downward pressure on interest rates for home loans. Bond market activity suggests a further decline could be ahead.

New Record Low (Again) for MTA ARM Index
There is no end in sight for new record lows being set by the Monthly Treasury Average -- which again fell to the lowest level ever.

Mortgage Market Index 164 in week ended April 4

Brokers Sustain Month's Mortgage Employment

Rates Creep Up, Could Keep Climbing
Mortgage rates had a slight bounce this week and are on a trajectory to move even higher, though a weak employment report could change that.

Study Suggests Elimination of GSEs Could Push Up Rates
A recent study suggests that housing finance reform could have a significant impact on mortgage rates. But even factoring in such increases, mortgage rates would still be lower than they've been for most of the past five decades.

New Record Low for COFI
A new record low was established for the Cost Of Funds Index based on more than three decades of data.
