Mortgage interest rates increased slightly this past week as markets continue to monitor Greece debt negotiations and equity markets in China.  Greece has put together a new bailout proposal that it will present to all 28 European Union members on Sunday.  Without a bailout, Greece is likely to default on its next debt service payment due on July 20.  In China, equity markets fell 40% from their market highs.  Its equity markets rallied, though, yesterday on support from the Chinese government.  Economic data in the U.S. was limited.  Of note, the June ISM Services Sector Index was in line with expectations.  The May Trade Deficit was smaller than expected, weekly

Mortgage interest rates increased this past week as Greece continues to negotiate with creditors for additional bailout funds.  Greece has a debt service payment due next Tuesday.  Without additional bailout funds, it’s questionable whether Greece will be able to make this payment.  Economic data in the U.S. was mixed.  Economic data stronger than expected included May Existing Home Sales, May New Home Sales, May Personal Spending, and the June University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index.  Existing Home Sales reached their best levels since November of 2009 and Personal Spending increased the most in six years.  May New Home Sales were up 19.6% year over year.
