The bond rally (and hence, mortgage rally) that began last Friday has grown from short-term correction to something deeper and perhaps more durable.

T-bonds reached 4.11 percent, down from last week’s post-July high at 4.42 percent, and mortgages are slightly under 5.75 percent. Other markets made huge moves also, all confirming the bond rally: gold is off $22/oz.; oil is still in the low-$40s; and the dollar is in a continuing rally against all currencies.
