Current mortgage rate trends May 5, 2011 mortgages oceanside

Current mortgage rate trends are improving.  Weekly jobless claims were higher than anticipated meaning that investors moved their money from stocks to bonds which caused mortgage rates to drop. 

Bad news for the economy usually means lower mortgage rates and good economic news usually means mortgage rates will rise.  This is because investors feel like they will make more money investing in mortgages rather than stocks when there are signs that the economy is in trouble.
