Mortgage rates have been heading lower the past couple of weeks because of the markets concern about the European government debt crisis. Since the problems began a few weeks ago bond yields and mortgage rates have headed lower. Although mortgage rates are low right now, rates will head higher very soon. St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank President, James Bullard said this past Monday that the debt crisis in Europe is unlikely to derail the global economic recovery.
