30 year mortgage rates today are averaging 3.96 percent, down from last week's average 30 year rate of 3.97 percent. This is the second consecutive week average 30 year mortgage rates remained under 4.00 percent. We do expect rates to increase because 10 year Treasury yields are up 14 basis points since Monday.

July employment numbers, scheduled to be released this Friday, could have a big impact on bond yields and mortgage rates. 220,000 jobs are expected to have been created in July and the unemployment rate to remain at 5.3 percent. A stronger number of jobs created would send interest rates higher.

A weak number won't send rates lower because the Fed is expected to increase the fed funds rate in the near future. The Fed is schedule to meet in September and will probably increase the fed funds rate 0.25 percent. An increase in the fed funds rate, will send bond yields higher, which in turn will send mortgage rates higher.
