Mortgage rates were higher today as the benchmarks provide mixed results

| | | |
Graph of 30-year mortgage

(Best Syndication News) Mortgage interest rates jumped four basis points (bps) on Friday as money flowed back into equities (see the mortgage rate charts below). A set of worse-than-expected economic indicators put pressure on stocks throughout the week.

Benchmarks

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) advanced 48 points (+0.35%) on Friday but was down 12.02 percent on the week. On Monday the Department of Commerce said that Factory orders increased just 1.8 percent in December. Economists were expecting a three percent increase.

On Tuesday the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) said their services index (non-manufacturing) slipped from 56.1 in December to 55.2 in January. The Labor Department said there were 365,000 initial jobless claims last week. Analysts were expecting just 365,000.

The U.S. Treasury Department said the 10-year note prices increased last week. Higher security prices mean lower yields. The 10-year note yield, a common benchmark for the 30-year fixed rate mortgage (FRM), fell one basis point last week (see the benchmark chart below).

The London InterBank Offered Rate (LIBOR) fell slightly while Fannie Mae lowered their required net yield (RNY) rates.

30-Year Fixed Mortgage Rates

The average 30-year fixed mortgage rate advanced four basis points (bps) Friday (see the mortgage rate chart below). The difference between the 10-year note yield and the 30-year mortgage expanded four bps to 1.680 percent.

The average FHA and VA loan rates were higher.

HSBC raised their purchase mortgage rate 13 bps. The lender also raised their refinance rate 13 bps to 4.13 percent.

Wells Fargo & Company (WFC) raised their rate 13 bps.

15-Year FRM and 5/1 ARM

The average 15-year fixed mortgage rate advanced one basis point Friday. SunTrust Banks, Inc. (STI) raised their 15-year rate three bps to 3.01 percent.

The average 5-year adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) slipped less than one point to 2.982 percent.
