Conforming thirty year fixed, 7/1 and 10/1 ARM rates are down this morning as the U. S. trade gap widened less than expected in March as exports fell 2.4% and imports dropped for the eighth consecutive month. Imports of industrial supplies, materials and capital goods were the lowest since April 2004. U. S. exports to China grew 19.1% in March to $5.6 billion, the highest in five months.
