INTEREST RATES VERY VOLATILE IN WAKE OF FISCAL CLIFF

INTEREST RATES VERY VOLATILE IN WAKE OF FISCAL CLIFF

November 14th, 2012

Interest rates have seen quite the see-saw action over the past week. Interest went up quite a bit on election day. Then dropped quite a bit after the election when the stock market dropped off.

Overall, last week interest rates improved – with the MBS market closing at (+ 47 bps).

This week has been a different story so far. The MBS market is trading (- 57 bps) for the week, pushing rates to the level we saw the week before the election.

Expect volatility in the markets right now. There is still the looming question of what Congress and the President are going to do regarding the fiscal cliff. It would be political suicide for this deal not to get done, so I definitely don’t see a compromise not being made. The question is – what will the compromise be?

I still see rates staying very similar to their current levels, but we could see quite a bit of closing cost variation on a daily basis depending on the market that day.
