Europe Up More Than Nine Percent: Look For Higher Mortgage Rates Today

Mike in Tucson: Bloomberg ChartMay 10, 2010  Bloomberg this morning shows the stock market in Europe up more than NINE PERCENT! 

Our markets will open in a little more than 90 minutes, and you can look for a rally in stocks after the beating the market took last Thursday and Friday.

Look too for mortgage interest rates to rise today as Mortgage Backed Securities sell off.

Rates are still exceptionally LOW by historical standards, but they won't stay there.

Good Moorning Mike, A great observation and I think for sure that higher interest rates now will be a real factor for the next couple months.

Mike, of course they are going to go up, it is just when????????

The big question. I know they were under 5% the last few weeks.

Mike - I have heard that rates are expected to hit 6.5% by the end of 2011, so people really need to take advantage of these low rates!
