11 / 20 / 2020 Update:

Good evening!  Below (and attached) please find your weekend ratesheet.


COMMENTARY: Yesterday afternoon the Treasury Department in a surprise move, asked the Federal Reserve to return $455 billion. 🤔 These funds were initially earmarked for corporations and municipalities as part of the $3 trillion CARES Act funding package.  Many market participants see yesterday's action by Treasury Secretary Mnuchin as destabilizing economic support programs. On the other hand, others point to the fact that the $455 billion worth of financial backstops the Fed was managing were due to expire on December 31st -- and weren't being used much in recent months.   From this perspective, the direct market impact of recalling these funds will likely be limited but having said that, Mortgage investors knee-jerk reaction was to push rates fractionally lower.  In my judgment, this idea will likely prove to be more wishful thinking than a practical reality and I don’t expect rates to stay where they are for any significant period of time.

Looking ahead to the coming week, Uncle Sam will be the credit markets looking to peddle $169 billion worth of 2-, 5-, and 7-year Treasury notes during a two-day borrowing spree.  Such a selling spree should make it difficult, if not impossible, for mortgage interest rates to gain traction toward lower levels.  In terms of economic reports, Wednesday will be a hectic day with weekly jobless claims, October Durable Goods Orders, and the revised Q3 Gross Domestic Product report.  This is followed by New Home Sales and the October Personal Income and Spending figures.  When it is all said and done, we will end up with the Fed’s Open Market report from its November 5th meeting.  Whew! With everything else we are going through right now, all of the scheduled reports on the docket next week are expected to be mortgage interest rate neutral.


The mortgage market will close at its regular time next Wednesday, be closed for the Thanksgiving Holiday on Thursday and close early at 2:00 PM ET on Friday, November 27th.
