Mortgage rates moved lower following a weaker-than-expected jobs report.  The so-called “jobs report” (officially “The Employment Situation”) is–on average and over time–the most important piece of economic data on any given month.  While it has recently taken a back seat to the likes of the Consumer Price Index (CPI… an inflation report), it always has the power to move bond markets.  Bonds, in turn, move mortgage rates.
