Today the stock market and the gold market made a bit of a recovery from yesterdays beating. This has put pressure on mortgage backed securities (MBS) causing the recent rate drop to stall out. Though MBS have support below them at the 200 day moving average, they appear to have been over bought in the last couple of weeks and could be due for a bit of a correction.

The main thing to know about home loan rates right now is that they are artificially being held this low and when the Fed starts to see signs of inflation, they will have no choice but to tapper off their buying policy of MBS. This will will cause rates to jump at least a percentage point very quickly. Now we do not know when that day is goiong to happen, but we know that it is going to happen. I would not wait for lower rates than what you are seeing now, but instead take advantage of what is currently available before it is gone.
