From what I can tell looking at bankrate the rates are moving around quite a bit from day to day over the last 2-3 days. (lots of economic news lately)...

More political than economic, IMO. I was concerned that all it would take to jack the rates back up was a tweet from Trump, since that was what sent it down. Mortgage broker said the rates didn't move when the Fed reduced rates as lowering of 25 basis points was already in the numbers from the day before. But when Trump tweeted about tariffs...

Good luck.
