Mortgage Rates – week ending 5/21/2010

Very interesting week!  The stock market plummeted bringing the 10 year Treasury rate down with it.  The 10 year ended the week at 3.25%, down 31bps from a week earlier.  As might be expected, mortgage rates dropped as well.  Correspondent mortgage rates came down 21bps to 4.46% while retail rates dropped only 9bps to 4.84.  It is not unusual to see this kind of lag between the index rate (treasury), the secondary rate and the primary rate.  I would expect some catch up next week.
