Maryland Mortgage Rates moved higher last week after selling off when Federal Reserve announced it would begin tapering QE3 program in January 2014.  If you look at the mortgage bond chart below, you can see the long term trend for mortgage bonds is for them to sell off and move mortgage rates higher.  In the short term, mortgage bonds did find a floor of support at 102.49 and were able to bounce off of it on Friday with the green candle on the chart.  We are going to recommend FLOATING your Maryland Mortgage Rate to start the week to see if we can get a short term rally in the bonds to move interest rates lower.  If the bond turns and sells off and breaks below support, we would quickly switch to LOCKING your Maryland Mortgage Rate.
