Despite signs recently that mortgage interest rates were moving up again, they ended up dipping recently to record lows. We get this from a recent Wall Street Journal piece:

Mortgage rates fell slightly the past week, with three of the four rates Freddie Mac tracks—including the 30-year fixed-rate—falling to record lows, according to Freddie’s weekly survey of mortgage rates.

The rates on all but one-year adjustable-rate mortgages hit the lowest point since Freddie began tracking them—1971 for the 30-year loans, 1991 for 15-year fixed and 2005 for 5-year adjustables. The one-year set yet another 6-year low in the latest week.

The declines come amid a continued rally in the Treasurys market, which pushes the debt’s yields down. Mortgage rates generally track yields.
