30yr mortgage rate charts or bond

Discussion in 'Economics' started by tradingcards, Feb 1, 2008.

  1. Can someone tell me a specific bond or instrument (ticker symbol please) that has a direct correlation with mortgage interest rates. Something that I can pull a chart up and analyze. The fed just cut rates by 1.25% in a couple weeks and mortgage rates went up. I have asked this before and people have said the 10 year treasury note is what i should watch. i see divergences between the 10 year and mortgage rates so I don't believe that is the correct bond.

    Can someone give me a link to a chart of the bond that is directly correlated with the rates of a 30 year mortgage.

    thank you
