13:38 EDTBernanke says housing sector rebounding but not yet out of the woods
The housing market is showing signs of improvement, but the sector is "far from out of the woods," Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke is warning in a speech today, according to a transcript provided by the Fed's website. Some 20% of mortgage borrowers are underwater, and over 2M homes remain in foreclosure, triple the historical average, the chairman said. Lower income and minority communities have been disproportionately affected by the housing downturn, and overall home ownership rates have declined from peak levels, Bernanke stated. Tight credit and high unemployment are two of the causes of the declines in home ownership rates, said Bernanke, adding that "overly tight lending standards may now be preventing creditworthy borrowers from buying homes."

07:35 EDTU.S. MBA mortgage market index fell 1.6%
U.S. MBA mortgage market index fell 1.6% in data released earlier, along with an increase in the purchase index of 2.7% and a drop in the refinancing index of 4.9% for the week ended Apr-4. Mortgage rates were stable as the stock market began its swoon last week after the relatively tame Mar payrolls print, with the average 30-year fixed rate unchanged at 4.56%. Since then, Russian geographic ambitions appeared to manifest inside the Ukraine again, which kept the markets unsettled and a lid on market yields. Winter hasn't been kind to the housing sector, though there's expected to be a spring thaw for the sector along with the usual seasonal uptick.
