Chart from The Wall Street Journal showing mortgage rates dropping in tandem with 10-year Treasury yields.

Hi All,

According to today's (9 August 2019) Wall Street Journal:

"Falling bond yields have pushed mortgage rates to their lowest level in nearly three years, spurring a rush by homeowners to refinance."

"The rate on a 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage fell to 3.6%, Freddie Mac said yesterday [8 August 2019], compared with nearly 5% in November 2018. Mortgage rates are closely linked to yields on 10-year Treasury notes, which Wednesday fell to 1.675%, the lowest since October 2016.

"Low interest rates often boost the homebuying market, but worries about the economy—telegraphed by the low rates—may hold purchasers back."

By the way, it might be a good time to refinance your mortgage.
