Predictions for California Mortgage Rates

As pointed in my earlier blog, I do not expect Rates to go down to early November levels. However, technically the mortgage bonds market is poised to bounce, it is extremely oversold after the huge and rapid climb in rates over the past three weeks. If I am correct, I expect the mortgages rates are going to improve for next few days, however any improvement won’t likely be anything substantial.
