Mortgage Bonds move higher.

After a sharp sell off earlier this week, mortgage bonds are making a comeback today and appear to be holding steady right at the 50 day and 200 day moving averages.  This has had a positive affect on rates this morning as I am quoting 30 year fixed conventional rates below 6% for the first time in over a week.

Initial jobless claims came out significantly worse than expected at 516,000 vs. the expected 479,000.  In addition, continuing jobless claims reached a 25 year high at 3.89 million.  This bad news for the economy is generally seen as a positive for the bond market as the likelihood of inflation lessens.

At the time of this post, the stock market is up slightly.
