Weekly Commentary and Economic Update

February 11
The 30-year mortgage rate dropped another 7 basis points this week to 3.65 percent. This week's drop leaves the mortgage rate just 6 basis points above last year's low of 3.59 percent.

In a falling rate environment, mortgage rates often adjust more slowly than capital market rates, and the early-2016 flight-to-quality has run true to form. The 30-year mortgage rate has dropped 36 basis points since the start of the year, while the yield on the 10-year Treasury has dropped 59 basis points over the same period. If Treasury yields were to hold at current levels, mortgage rates might well sink a little further before stabilizing.
