Mortgage Rates and Bond Yields Surge Higher, Fed Tries to Stop the Trend

Over the past two months, mortgage rates and long term bond yields have surged higher due to to fears the Fed will begin to wrap up the current round of quantitative easing (QE3) as early as this September. Mortgage rates today on 30 year conforming loans are averaging 4.52, up over 1.00 percent from the beginning of May when the average rate was 3.43 percent. 10 year Treasury yields are also up around 1.00 percent over the past couple of months. Yields have risen from 1.66 percent in early May to 2.60 percent yesterday.

To stop the surge higher, several Fed officials including the Fed Chairman, Ben Bernanke, have said the Fed might possibly keep the Fed funds rate lower longer than previously thought. The Fed has also stated the possibility of keeping QE3 going for another year instead of ending it in a couple of months.
