Mortgage rates were roughly unchanged today. That’s not too surprising considering lenders don’t tend to make big moves on the Friday after Thanksgiving, regardless of market conditions. Moreover, they’re working with a shorter-than-normal trading day.
Bonds normally trade through 5pm Eastern time with 3pm being the deadline for many of the biggest players. When bonds close early, trading is only open through 2pm and the deadline for the biggest players is a moving target–especially on the day after Thanksgiving.
