Mortgage Rates Mixed This Week: 30 Year Mortgage Rates at 5.05%, 15 Year Mortgage Rates at 4.40%

Mortgage rates were mixed this past week, 30 year mortgage rates were slight higher and 15 year mortgage rates were unchanged. Fixed jumbo fixed mortgages were down and adjustable mortgage rates were mixed.

weeklymortgageratesThe Federal Open Market Committee met last week and decided to keep the Fed funds rate in a targeted range of zero percent to one quarter percent. The Fed said economic activity has continued to strengthen, layoffs are abating and bank lending continues to contract.



The Fed also said inflation isn't a concern right now and probably won't be for a while because there is "substantial resource slack" that is keeping cost pressures down and keeping inflation down for some time. Even though inflation isn't a concern, mortgage rates will start heading higher soon because the Fed is completing its $1.25 trillion program of purchasing mortgage-backed securities to support mortgage lending. The program will wind down at the end of the 1st quarter 2010.
