Mortgage rates pulled back slightly during the week ended November 16, but that did little to move mortgage applications higher. The Mortgage Bankers Association said its Market Composite Index, a measure of overall application volume, continued to trend down, dipping 0.1 percent on a seasonally adjusted basis compared to the week ended November 9. The weeks results do not include an adjustment to account for the Veterans’ Day holiday. On an unadjusted basis, the Index was down 3.0 percent.
