"The 10-year Treasury yield declined after last week's post-Brexit high in anticipation of the Fed's September policy meeting. The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage followed Treasury yields, falling 2 basis points and settling at 3.48 percent. Despite the decrease in rates, the Refinance Index plunged 8 percent to its lowest level since June.
