Economy picks up so does interest rates


After hovering for weeks at 4.5%, mortgage rates headed higher as fresh data suggests the economy is picking up. Freddie Mac’s weekly survey released on Thursday morning showed average rates at 4.51%, but rates continued to climb along with stocks, which notched their biggest weekly gain in two years.
