From Matthew Graham at Mortgage News Daily: Mortgage Rates Edge Slightly Higher

Mortgage rates were modestly higher today amid exceptionally quiet market conditions. In general, the bond market (which underlies mortgage rates) has been sideways and fairly lifeless since the end of June. [30YR FIXED - 4.625% - 4.75%]
emphasis added
