The month of April was a very interesting month for average 30 year fixed mortgage rates.  To start the month the 10 year treasury rate yield was moving higher.  In fact, the 10 year yield pushed above its 200 day moving average very early in the month but that changed quickly on April 9th.  The 10 year yield dropped to around 2% and it never jumped above the 50 day or 200 day moving average again the entire month.  This helped to keep mortgage interest rates near historic lows.
