  • The rate on a thirty year fixed rate mortgage remained relatively unchanged last week at 4.69%, but is down 26 bps from mid-April.
  • The average annual inflation expectation in the U.S. over the next ten years declined by 9 bps to 2.39%.
  • The decline in long term interest rates reflects conflicting signals from the latest employment report – more people employed, but a higher unemployment rate due to a bigger labor force.
