"Mortgage rates were little changed for the week following mixed economic data before bond yields began moving higher Wednesday afternoon. Although real GDP growth was revised down to a negative 0.7 percent annualized rate, the Institute for Supply Management reported a modest growth in the manufacturing sector in May. If the Wednesday surge of treasury yields persists, the impact on mortgage rates is likely to result in a bout of affordability shock to many housing markets across the country."
