RATES HIGHER BEFORE IMPORTANT FED MEETING / EMPLOYMENT REPORT

RATES HIGHER BEFORE IMPORTANT FED MEETING / EMPLOYMENT REPORT

July 30th, 2013

Interest rates have moved up slightly over the past week and a half.  Last week the Mortgage Backed Security market closed trading down – 39 bps and so far this week the MBS market has traded down -18 bps. 

This is a somewhat normal pull back after interest rates had improved over the past 2 weeks.  Investor took the gains and sold.  We are seeing a level of resistance that most investors will not go above, which makes it difficult for interest rates to improve below a certain level.

There are 2 major events this week that will likely cause a lot of volatility in the interest rate markets.

The Federal Open Market Committee’s (FOMC) meeting is Wednesday and investors will be listening intently for any new information on the FED’s time period for tapering it’s bond purchasing program. 

On Friday, the July employment report will be released.

I maintain that it is safer to lock than float interest rate pricing.  Unless we see the FED definitively extend its bond purchasing program or very poor economic performance reports – rates will not likely go much below their current levels.

Make it a great week!!
