Attributed to Sean Becketti, chief economist, Freddie Mac:

“Treasury yields oscillated without a clear direction heading into the October FOMC meeting, as investors were confident there would be no rate increase. The 30-year mortgage rate was little changed, declining just 3 basis points to 3.76 percent this week. While the FOMC left rates unchanged at this meeting, they kept a December rate hike as an option causing Treasuries to sell off in the latter part of the day, after our survey closed.”

“Recent housing reports have done little to add or detract from the possibility of a December rate increase. Existing home sales were strong, contrasting with disappointing new [PDF] home sales.”
