Mortgage Rates Mixed This Week with FHA and Jumbo Loans Dropping

| | |
Graph of 10-year Notes

(Best Syndication News) Mortgage interest rates were slightly higher today, but jumbo and FHA fixed rates fell (see the mortgage rate tables below). Consumer credit expanded in July, according to data released by the Federal Reserve, but less than forecast.

The average 30-year fixed rate mortgage (FRM) jumped one basis point to 4.418 percent on Tuesday, but the average FHA loan rate fell two basis points (bps). VA mortgage rates jumped another four points in one day.

Interest rates have been trending higher over the last month and 100-day period. Uncertainty surrounding the central bank’s easing programs pushed stocks lower but put upward pressure on mortgage rates. The average FHA mortgage rate is 103 basis points higher.

FDA announces Product Safety Recall for MOTRIN Infant Drops

Best Syndication News - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that McNeil Consumer Healthcare has voluntarily recalled certain lots of Concentrated MOTRIN Infants’ Drops Original Berry Flavor. About 200,000 bottles are involved in the recall, but only three lots of the ½ fluid ounce bottles are involved.

The recall was announced when the company discovered 1 mm sized plastic particles in a different product lot that was being manufactured and has not been shipped. McNeil believes that the plastic pieces came from a third party supplier of ibuprofen, which is an ingredient used to make their product. Out of extreme safety measures, McNeil Consumer Healthcare has decided to recall three lots of Concentrated MOTRIN Infants’ Drops Original Berry Flavor ½ fluid ounce sized bottles, because these lots also used the same batch of ibuprofen.
