Below are a couple of interesting charts. They show what has happened in the mortgage bond market over the past 6 weeks and then 6 months. Like everything else in the mortgage world, this is literally upside down. The chart shows the price of a mortgage bond which is the reverse of the interest rate. So as the line moves up, rates are going down. Up is good. Down is bad.
