This week concluded with mortgage rates moving in an extremely tight trading range, still near all time historic lows. There were a few pieces of economic data released this week, but nothing that caused any major movement for mortgage rates.
Market watchers are still keeping an eye on Europe for any news about potential debt insolvency issues in Spain and Italy.
What’s Moving Mortgage Rates Next Week?
We will see some decent activity next week in terms of economic data being released that can move mortgage rates. In addition to GDP data for the 1st quarter, reports relating to jobless claims and new home sales will be released.
Additionally, there is a two day FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) meeting being held, which will be followed by a press conference being held by FED chairman Ben Bernanke. Any of these events have strong potential to move mortgage rates.
