Good morning and happy hump day! We had more housing news today in the form of Mortgage Applications, which was released at 6:00 a.m. central time. This was for the most recent week ending July 23rd. The prior week we saw a -4.0% decline. Today was another flip-flop, upward this time, at +5.7%. Most of the chatter today centered around the ongoing Fed meeting and what their posture will be on mortgages going forward. While no-one expects the Fed to announce today exactly when an MBS taper will begin, the pundits will be looking for minute changes in their language that may provide hints about the future.

The bond market today is mixed with the 10yr T-Note -5/32 to yield 1.26%. In MBS FNMA 30yr 2.50% are actually +4/32 to $104-01, which is a 1.42% yield and +86 to the 4yr treasury curve. Have a great day and get our help with your MBS and loan inquiries!
