Mortgage Rates From Matthew Graham at Mortgage News Daily: Mortgage Rates Starting The Week Closer to Recent Highs

Mortgage rates moved moderately higher to begin the new week, but they remained just under the highest recent levels seen last Thursday. Many lenders were closer to 'unchanged' at the outset but were then forced to issue mid-day increases in response to weakness in the bond market.
