Mortgage Market in Review:
Treasury prices ticked up, pushing yields slightly lower on Wednesday, as Wall Street awaited minutes from the Federal Reserve policy-setting gathering last month and as investors assessed Middle East unrest. This has led to stability in the mortgage rate market. However, this stability may be short-lived depending on what the Fed minutes reveal. We also have to see what this Months Jobs’ Report delivers on Friday morning. This is a consistent market mover, depending on whether or not the data in this report is in line with market expectations.
