From Stuart Crawford at V.I.P. Mortgage:
"Following the prior week's packed schedule, there was far less major economic news last week. The global economic data that was released was generally a little stronger than expected, and this was negative for mortgage rates, which ended the week a little higher.
The biggest surprise last week was economic news from Friday's data on imports and exports. The December Trade Deficit declined to the lowest level since January 2010, and exports were higher than expected, and imports were smaller than expected. Since the first reading for fourth quarter GDP used an estimate of the December trade data, the actual results will almost certainly lead to an upward revision. Last week's release of fourth quarter GDP showed the first decline since December 2009, but economists now predict that it will be revised to show an increase of 0.5%. Stronger growth is great news for the economy, but it raises inflationary pressures and is unfavorable for mortgage rates.
The housing market data released also contained good news for the economy. According to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the number of improving housing markets expanded for the sixth straight month in February. The index considers the levels of housing permits, employment and home prices to determine improvement. The latest report shows that 259 of 361 metro regions are improving (roughly 70%), up from just 12 regions in September 2011.
The most significant economic report this week will be Retail Sales on Wednesday. Retail Sales account for about 70% of economic activity, so it is a good indication of how confident the consumer is."
