    Yield Curve 

    Derek Kravitz, AP Real Estate Writer, On Thursday September 29, 2011, 10:25 am
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Fixed mortgage rates have fallen to historic new lows for a fourth straight week and are likely to fall further.

    The average on a 30-year fixed mortgage fell to 4.01 percent this week, Freddie Mac said Thursday. That’s the lowest rate since the mortgage buyer began keeping records in 1971. The last time long-term rates were lower was in 1951, when most long-term home loans lasted just 20 or 25 years.

    The average on a 15-year fixed mortgage, a popular refinancing option, ticked down to 3.28 percent. Economists say that’s the lowest rate ever for the loan.

    Mortgage rates tend to track the yield on the 10-year Treasury note. Rates could fall further after the Federal Reserve announced last week that it would take further action to try to lower long-term rates.

    10 years gone by, where did they go?

    NEW YORK (Reuters) – Treasury debt prices rose on Friday, taking benchmark yields to the lowest in at least 60 years as investors looked for a safe haven on revived worries a European debt crisis could have a significant global impact.

    Stocks plunged on Friday, losing over 2.5 percent and bolstering the safe-haven allure of U.S. government debt, with few investors looking to go into the weekend short Treasuries due to the uncertainty surrounding the European debt crisis.

    The worries over Europe were sparked by the planned resignation of European Central Bank (ECB) Executive Board Member Juergen Stark. The ECB confirmed a Reuters report that said Stark was quitting because of a conflict over the central bank’s bond buying program.
