Bonds Holding Gains Despite Bounce in Stocks; Fed Minutes Uneventful Today"s Fed Minutes proved to be every bit as uneventful as they might have been.  There was no meaningful reaction in the bond market, though one might content that stocks improved as a result.  Therein lies the day"s most ...Read More
Have Rates Finally Turned a Corner?
5/25/2022 4:46 PM
Mortgage rates fell again today, bringing them even deeper into their best levels in over a month, but caveats abound.  First off.  They"re still quite high in the bigger picture.  Moreover, much of the recent drop was arguably made possible by an equally abrupt spike that began in the last week of April.  In other words, if we ...Read More
Mortgage Applications Still Contracting, But at a Slower Pace
5/25/2022 3:08 PM
Today"s weekly mortgage application survey from the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) was fairly unsurprising in that applications declined, but at a slightly slower pace compared to recent weeks.  The moderation in the pace makes sense for a few reasons.  First off, refi applications are near their historical lower boundary. Secondly, i...Read More
Capital Markets, Purchase Advice Products; Investor Agency Changes; Rates Hit Housing; IMB Costs Head Higher
5/25/2022 9:47 AM
All the stories that could be told, and so many that have yet to happen. And now 19 that never will be. It is very hard to go about one’s day, whether one has children or not, or a teacher in their family as I do, or not, given what happened in Uvalde, Texas, yesterday. Or to imagine what being in that classroom was like. And just like after every ...Read More
MBS Live Morning: What Can Today"s Fed Minutes Tell Us That We Don"t Already Know?
5/25/2022 9:02 AM
In the run up to the most recent Fed announcement, the 50bp rate hike was a foregone conclusion.  There was some uncertainty about how the Fed would announce balance sheet normalization, but there too, they stuck to the script.  With normalization underway and ample Fed comments in the past 2 weeks on the certainty of several 50bp rate hi...Read More

5/24/2022 3:23 PM
Rate Rally Returns With Help From Housing Data How about a good, old-fashioned market reaction to weaker economic data?  We"ve seen it a few times recently, but not in response to an "almost never" market mover like New Home Sales.  Today was an exception owing to the 591k headline vs a 750k forec...Read More
New Home Sales Plummet: Big Wake Up Call or a Logical Shift?
5/24/2022 12:43 PM
The housing market has been keeping its head down, keeping calm, and carrying on in the face of the biggest rate spike since the 1980s.  The ability to ignore higher interest rates is nothing new for home sales.  In fact, sometimes we see almost no reaction in sales numbers when rates rise.   The following chart shows several o...Read More

The last pay phone was removed from New York City yesterday. (Heck, growing up I financed my baseball card purchases by looking for loose change in those and newspaper vending machines.) Communication is certainly always changing, and successful loan officers and managers are adept at knowing the best way to communicate with others. Communication a...Read More
