INTEREST RATES FINALLY IMPROVE – LOWEST RATES THIS MONTH

INTEREST RATES FINALLY IMPROVE  –  LOWEST RATES THIS MONTH

June 17th, 2013

After 6 straight weeks of interest rates moving higher, interest rates finally showed some improvement last week.  The Mortgage Backed Security market closed the week trading up + 36 bps. 

This is a huge week for interest rates as the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) will meet and release a statement on Wednesday followed by a Ben Bernanke press conference.  Ben Bernanke’s last statements caused rates to rise .5% very quickly.  It’s amazing how much power the markets put into any hint of what the FED may do.

There is speculation both ways on what the statement and press conference may reveal.  Some predict that the FED may confirm it will not taper off the bond purchasing program.  I don’t think Bernanke knew his last statement would cause such a panic sell off in the bond markets.  This along with the unemployment rate still being high and the economy not improving as much as the FED would like could cause this response. 

On the other hand there is speculation that the FED will confirm that it will taper off the bond purchasing program, which has been hinted at for some time.

Either way, expect a very volatile rate market after Wednesday.  The news on Wednesday will likely give us direction on where long term interest rates are headed.

Make it a great week!!
