INTEREST RATES RISE SLIGHTLY – 30 YEAR FIXED PAR RATE STILL AT 3.25%

INTEREST RATES RISE SLIGHTLY  –  30 YEAR FIXED PAR RATE STILL AT 3.25%

November 19th, 201

Interest rates rose slightly last week with the stock market optimistic that a deal will get done to avoid the fiscal cliff.

The Mortgage backed security market closed last week down (-28 bps), and is currently trading on Monday down (-11 bps). 

On Friday, President Obama met with other political leaders to discuss the fiscal cliff.  Both sides seem to be softening their stance so the stock market is optimistic that a deal will get done – which is pushing stocks up and mortgage backed securities down.

This is a shortened week due to the Thanksgiving Holiday. 

On Monday, housing data was released that continues to show the housing market improving.  On Tuesday, The European Union is meeting with Greece regarding additional funds to avoid the country defaulting on it’s debt.  Ben Bernanke is also speaking at the NY Economics Club.  The market will be listening for clues on the Fed’s next move.

Rates are still trading in narrow ranges with the same rates available with fluctuating costs depending on how the market is moving.  30 Year Fixed rates at 3.25% are still available paying a point.  I see interest rates remaining in this range through the end of 2012. 

Have a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving!!
