Today's mortgage rates moved lower on the heels of lower 10 year bond yields. Last Friday, 10 year bond yields hit a two month high of 2.61 percent but have declined to 2.58 percent yesterday. As a result of lower bond yields average 30 year mortgage rates have fallen to 4.20 percent today, down from a recent high of 4.27 percent on Monday.

Which direction mortgage rates move this week will be up to what the Federal Open Market Committee says. The FOMC concludes its two day meeting on economic policy today. There is a zero percent chance the FOMC will increase the federal funds rate this time around. The big unknown factor is if the FOMC drops it's dovish phrase on leaving interest rates low for a "considerable time."
