Summary:
From Matthew Graham at MortgageNewsDaily: Mortgage Rates' Week Goes From Bad to WorseMortgage rates were already having their worst week since 2016 as of yesterday afternoon.

Whether we're looking at 10yr Treasury yields a broad indicator of longer-term rates or average mortgage lender offerings, this week now ranks among the top 3 in the past decade in terms of the overall move higher. At this point, we'd have to go back to the trauma of 2013's 'taper tantrum' to see anything bigger.
