INTEREST RATES IMPROVE FOR 2ND STRAIGHT WEEK:

INTEREST RATES IMPROVE FOR 2ND STRAIGHT WEEK:

July 22nd, 2013

Interest rates improved for the second straight week. The Mortgage Backed Security Market closed up + 81 bps, bringing us back to pre-4th of July level pricing.

On Wednesday, Ben Bernanke testified in front of Congress that the Fed’s tapering of it’s bond purchasing program was not “imminent”, but that the FED was monitoring the economy. When the FED feels the economy is where it needs to be, then the FED will begin to end it’s stimulus.

This helped the markets because many investors felt the FED was planning on slowing down it’s bond purchasing in September. I still believe the FED will slow down the stimulus in September, unless some event pulls back the forecast of the economy.

I expect rates to be relatively calm until the July unemployment report. These employment reports are huge moving forward, and will likely be one of the key determining factors in the FED’s decision to slow down it’s bond purchasing program. The July employment numbers are released next Friday morning.

I am recommending to lock on any improvement in rate pricing.

Make it a great week!!
