RATES HIT LOWEST LEVELS SINCE JANUARY

RATES HIT LOWEST LEVELS SINCE JANUARY

April 8th, 2013

Interest rates had their best week in months.  Interest rates dropped approximately .125% on the week with the Mortgage Backed Security market closing up (+ 122 bps).  This is the fourth consecutive week that interest rates have improved, with last week being the most dramatic drop.

The economic optimism is coming back to earth which is helping interest rates come back down.  The Dow Jones closed last week close to where it began.  American citizens in some industries are now starting to feel the effects of the sequester.  North Korea’s bold rhetoric is starting to worry some investors. 

The week was capped by a lower than expected March job report.  Although the unemployment rate dropped from 7.7% to 7.6%, job growth was much lower than forecasted.  Non farm jobs only grew 88k from an expected 200k.  The drop in unemployment is mainly due to people leaving the work force.    

This week is another great opportunity to lock in as rates are at their lowest levels since January. 

Make it a great week!!
