From Matthew Graham at Mortgage News Daily: Mortgage Rates Surge 0.125% Higher

Mortgage rates spiked quickly today, capping a 3-day run leading back up from the lowest levels in more than a year. Today's move was by far the biggest and it leaves the average lender offering rates that are at least an eighth of a percentage point (0.125%) higher compared to most of last week.
