Mortgage Market in Review:
The volatility of the market has continued over the past week. While Equity markets have pushed slightly higher, we have seen a sell-off in the bond markets. This has caused a slight up-tick in mortgage rates, pushing the average 30-Year Fixed back over 4.00%. Geopolitics are still dominating the market action. Whether it is the French election, or the firing of FBI Director Comey, the markets are constantly watching everything going on outside of the business world. We’ll see if this trend continues throughout May, while analysts and traders wait the June Fed meeting.
