MARKET REPORTS & ANALYSIS    
  • Rate Lock Advisory. Close in 15 days or less, Float this morning and check market this afternoon. Still recommend locking loans that are scheduled to close >15 days.
  • Friday Market is a mixed bag. The headline durable goods orders were much lighter than expected but still much better than Nov. When you strip out airplance, etc it was in line with estimates. But GDP was lighter than expected, and should help MBS to move off of their early morning lows. 
  • Thursday's Rate Results: Mortgage Pricing based on Mortgage Backed Securities (MBS) closed Down 0.02 Point
  • 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 4.19 percent with an average 0.4 point for the week ending Jan. 26, 2017, up from last week when it averaged 4.09 percent. A year ago at this time, the 30-year FRM averaged 3.79 percent.
