Mortgage rates explode higher

By Matthew Graham | Mortgage Daily News

If you received a mortgage rate quote any time in the past few days or weeks, unless it was at the end of the business day on Monday, March 14th, you’re looking at a relic of a bygone era. Print it out and hang it up in the halls of Woulda, Shoulda, Coulda. This is actually good advice for any moment in time (after all, you might be reading this article on some day other than March 14th!). Specifically, mortgage rates can change rapidly during the day, and massively from week to week even though they can also be very boring for months on end.

Suffice it to say that 2022 has not been one of the boring times for rates. It’s also not been a good time for rates between inflation, the Federal Reserve’s response to inflation, and yet more inflation driven indirectly by the war in Ukraine. Today’s spike was a triple whammy. Traders are protesting the stern attitudes among major central banks. High inflation remains intact. And now potential progress in peace talks (yes, we’ll also believe it when we see it) is leading traders to sell bonds they recently bought in the process of seeking safe havens due to war-related uncertainty.
