Granted the accounted for data increased 7% on an unadjusted basis, taking into account for Columbus Day. While this news is not shocking, the Refinance Index decreased 4% from the previous week, remaining the same in comparison to the week prior at 59.4%. Applications for government-backed mortgages also tapered off slightly from higher levels last week. The share of FHA decreased from 14.3% to 13.7%.
