A better than expected Producer Price Index has given markets another boost


Today's Mortgage Rate Summary

How Rates Move:

Conventional and Government (FHA and VA) lenders set their rates based on the pricing of Mortgage-Backed Securities (MBS) which are traded in real time, all day in the bond market. This means rates or loan fees (mortgage pricing) moves throughout the day, being affected by a variety of economic or political events. When MBS pricing goes up, mortgage rates or pricing generally goes down. When they fall, mortgage pricing goes up.

Rates Currently Trending: Lower

Mortgage rates are edging lower today. The MBS market improved by +57 bps yesterday. This was enough to decrease mortgage rates or fees. The market experienced high volatility yesterday.

Today's Rate Forecast: Neutral

Inflation: The June headline Producer Price Index was weaker (better) than expected, rising by just 0.1% vs. est. of 0.2%, plus the prior month was revised lower to -0.4%. YOY, it was up 0.1% vs. est. of 0.4%. Core PPI (ex food and energy) was also up 0.1% vs. est. of 0.2%. YOY it was up 2.4% vs. est. of 2.6%.

Today's Potential Rate Volatility: High

This morning markets are getting some positive pressure on the producer inflation data. Volatility has started high as markets trade erratically.

Bottom Line:

If you are looking for the risks and benefits of locking your interest rate in today or floating your loan rate, contact your mortgage professional to discuss it with them.
