Mortgage rates moved higher Thursday reflecting yesterday’s late sell-off of U.S. Treasuries and mortgage-backed securities. Long-term rates are now at their highest levels since 2011. In economic news, weekly Jobless Claims fell to 207,000, a bit below forecast. August Factory Orders rose 2.3%, beating estimates. Investors will be closely following tomorrow’s key Employment Report for September which will be released at 8:30 AM.
