From Matthew Graham at Mortgage News Daily: Mortgage Rates Modestly Higher, But Volatility Could Increase

Mortgage rates moved up today, but at a fairly tame pace in the bigger picture. The rest of the week, however, may not be as tame. There are multiple economic reports on tap with a history of impacting the bond market (which dictates rates). The data gets most serious starting on Wednesday and finally culminates with ... the big jobs report. [30YR FIXED - 4.25-4.375%]
