"Mortgage Rates Jump to 7-Year Highs"

Summary:
From Matthew Graham at Mortgage News Daily: Mortgage Rates Jump to 7-Year HighsMortgage rates spiked in a big way today, bringing some lenders to the highest levels in nearly 7 years (you'd need to go back to July 2011 to see worse). That heavy-hitting headline is largely due to the fact that rates were already fairly close to 7-year highs, although today did cover quite a bit more distance than other recent "bad days."
