Today has nothing scheduled that is relevant to mortgage rates. There is no reason to believe that we will see an intraday revision to rates unless the major stock indexes make a big move lower. In other words, don't be surprised to see a fairly quiet end of the week for bonds and mortgage pricing.

Next week is much busier than this week was though. It has something for us to watch every day, starting with a minor housing report Monday morning. The scheduled events range from low importance to highly important. We will get housing, manufacturing and consumer spending data along with the initial GDP reading for the 4th quarter, a couple of Treasury auctions and a FOMC meeting. Look for details on all of next week's calendar in Sunday evening's weekly preview.
