Mortgage rates for 30-year and 15-year fixed loans, as well as 5/1 ARMs, all stepped higher today, according to a NerdWallet survey of daily mortgage rates published by national lenders Tuesday morning.
The economy seems to be coasting along more than accelerating ahead, so most analysts believe the Federal Reserve will leave short-term interest rates unchanged tomorrow.
In early trading today, the S&P 500 was setting record highs while Treasurys moved lower. As a result, government bond yields were higher — and mortgage rates were bouncing off of their lows for the month.
