Good morning and happy hump day! We had scheduled news today! At 6:00 a.m. central time we got a dose of Mortgage Applications for the week ending Aug. 6th. We’re coming off a -1.7% for the prior week and a +7.0% for the week before that, exemplifying our comments about the up/down nature of this index. Today added to the whipsaw action with a +2.8% number. In other news today, we got the ICE Origination Insight Report and it was chocked full of interesting loan data. Topping the list, purchase volume exceeded refinance volume 51% to 48% for the first time since Dec. 2019 in this report. This was mainly because of FHA/VA loans, where 79% and 70% respectively were purchases. Refi’s remain in the lead for conventional loans at 53% vs 46%.

Bonds today are flat, with the 10yr T-Notes +1/32 to yield 1.35%. In MBS 30yr FNMA 2.50% are unchanged at $103-17 (Sept), which is a 1.57% yield and +91 to the 4.1yr treasury curve. Have a great day and call or email for help with your MBS or loans!
