Originations 7/20: Prepare For Rate Rise

Sunday I noted that rates may rise slightly this week as a U.S. debt ceiling deal comes closer, and today’s links are on this theme. I don’t see a spike since economic data aren’t likely to show meaningful recovery, but mortgage bonds will likely lose ground as stocks rally on optimism about a fiscal deal and earnings, and it’ll cause some upward rate movement.
