The Federal Reserve has been tightening monetary policy, aka, increasing interest rates. The Fed is widely expected to increase their key bench-mark rate, the fed funds rate, at least two more times this year. Two more increases will put the fed funds rate in a range of 2.50 percent to 2.75 percent.

As the Fed increases rates, U.S. Treasury yields move higher and as a result, lenders increase rates on mortgage loans. If the Fed raises rates a couple of more times this year, it's possible that 30 year conforming rates will hit 5.00 percent by the end of 2018.
