Mortgage Rate Update for August 5, 2010

Here are some of the events affecting Maine mortgage rates today:

What Mortgage Backed Securities (MBS) Are Doing Today:

  • The price of the FNMA 30-Year 4.0% MBS coupon opened at 102.34 this morning – the same as yesterday’s close.
  • At 9:30 AM, the 4.0% MBS coupon was trading at 102.50 – up 5/32 from its opening.

Remember, on mortgage backed securities (MBSs), as the price goes up, the yield comes down – and so do mortgage rates. Maine mortgage rates will be up to 0.125 points better in price today as compared to yesterday.
