The mortgage rates published by banks are affected by the changes in the prices of mortgage backed financial instruments, which usually follow the movement of stock markets. As the Wall Street lost its ground by the end of the trading day, leaving the DJIA index at 15337.70, BB&T followed the market’s footsteps and published its lending rates accordingly. However, the stock prices of BBT shares gained some ground and raised up to 35.72 after a hike of +0.40 price points.
