RATES HAVE GREAT WEEK – FED STATEMENT ON WEDNESDAY

RATES HAVE GREAT WEEK – FED STATEMENT ON WEDNESDAY.

April 28th, 2014

Interest rates improved or stayed the same every day last week. The Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market closed the week trading up + 58 bps.

The primary reason for interest rate improvement is renewed concerns regarding Ukraine/Russia and a slumping stock market. The week before last, rates went up due to reports of a peace agreement between Ukraine and Russia. Last week, the exact opposite happened. It’s fair to say that continued developments in the Ukraine/Russia conflict are having a major effect on interest rate pricing and will likely continue to do so until the conflict is over.

This week, the FED will be releasing a statement on Wednesday after their meetings. It is expected that the FED will taper their bond purchasing program another 10 billion at the meeting.

Because of further tapering, I think that interest rates will trend higher after Wednesday this week unless there is a major breakthrough in peace talks between Russia and Ukraine.
