Commentary: This morning’s news of a 7,000 gain in the number of Americans filing first-time claims for government unemployment benefits during the week ending February 28th was completely shrugged off by mortgage investors. For the next several weeks this data will be heavily discounted due to a combination of weather issues in much of the country and the influences of the West Coast longshoreman and refinery workers strike.



The survey period for today’s weekly jobless claims report fell outside of the data collection time frame for tomorrow’s much more important February nonfarm payroll data.



As I write, the consensus forecast is calling for a February headline payroll gain of 235,000 and a downward tick for the national jobless rate to 5.6% from last month’s 5.7% level. Average hourly earnings are expected to increase 0.2%. These numbers are already reflected in the mortgage market.



A February nonfarm payroll number of 245,000 or more, a jobless rate of 5.6% or less and an average hourly earnings increase of 0.2% or higher will likely exert noticeable upward pressure on mortgage interest rates.



It is a very close call, but I see reasons to believe the February payroll numbers will likely fall within shouting distance of the consensus estimate. If this assessment proves accurate, the macro-economic data will likely support essentially steady mortgage interest rates.
