Today's Mortgage Rates


Mortgage Rates Trying to Stop The Bleeding
 
Sep 20 2018, 4:40PM

Mortgage rates were mostly able to hold steady today, although they technically moved just a bit higher and that technically leaves them at the highest levels in 7 years.  But hey!  Let's focus on the positives... In terms of day-over-day changes, today was the best day of the week so far!

As for today, it stands at least some chance to serve as the early stage of a ceiling for rates.  Whether that proves to be true and how long such a ceiling lasts remains to be seen.  In any event, next week's Fed announcement (Wednesday) has the greatest potential to kick off the next set of bigger moves.  If volatility dies down between now and then, it would at least be better than what we've seen in the past few weeks.
