Mortgage Market in Review
Recently, The Fed released the minutes from its last meeting. These showed that sentiment has grown for a second increase of overnight lending rates in 2016. Whether this will be in June or July is yet to be seen, but the markets have reacted accordingly. We’ve seen a steady sell off in the bond market for the past week, causing a slight bump in mortgage rates. Normally, the market will stabilize going into the holiday weekend, as overall trading volume will start to reduce. This leaves us with waiting until the beginning of June to get further guidance from the markets, and to see if this trend upwards on rates will continue, or if we we’ll see things settle back down.
