Mortgage Rates This Week – December 9th – 13th

There are far fewer economic reports scheduled for release this week with the biggest reports released on Thursday with Retail Sales and Initial Jobless Claims. We do have Treasury auctions taking place on Wednesday and Thursday with the 10 Year Note and 30 Year Bond. Mortgage rates look to recover from last weeks increases following better than expected GDP and job reports.

What is on the agenda for this week?
