Mortgage shoppers who are looking forward to reach out the loan department of JP Morgan Chase Bank (NYSE: JPM) on January 9, 2014, will find no change in the benchmark 30 year fixed mortgage interest rates. However, the variable interest lending options have moved a bit towards the south in regards to the lending rates, thereby making the respective loan options a little expensive and less interesting for the approaching customers.
The borrowers looking to finance their home purchase with long term deals will find the standard, 30 year fixed rate mortgage home loans, coming out at an interest rate of 4.625% and carrying an annual percentage rate of 4.733% today.

In the flexible loan department, the bank is offering the best 5 year adjustable rate home loan packages at a higher interest rate of 3.217% and an annual return equivalent to 3.217% during the initial years of the loan. However, the more flexible, 7 year adjustable rate mortgage home loans can be had at an interest rate of 4.000% today and an APR yield of 3.493% to start with.
Shifting heads towards the refinancing section, the customers will certainly find the popular 30 year refinancing fixed rate home loan options at an interest rate of 4.625% and backed by an APR yield of 4.733%.

Mortgage rates quoted by banks move up and down on the basis of price fluctuations experienced by mortgage backed financial securities, which trail the path of stock markets. As expected, the bank moved along the same path as the Wall Street, which declined by -0.73% by the end of the trading day and left the DJIA index hanging at 15337.70. Regardless of mortgage rates, the stock prices of JPM shares increased by +0.69% and closed at 53.66.
