Rates Move Higher After FED Doesn’t Raise Federal Funds Rate

Rates Move Higher After FED Doesn’t Raise Federal Funds Rate

November 2015

Last week, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) announced that they would not raise the Federal Funds rate. Although most experts predicted they would not raise the rate, the Mortgage Backed Security market had a sell off after the announcement, closing down – 74 bps on Wednesday and Thursday. This pushed rates about .125% higher than they were prior.

On the week the MBS market closed down – 36 bps.

The FOMC meets again in December and I personally think they will raise the Federal Funds rate at that time after a year of talking about it.

This week is employment week with the Non Farm Payroll report being released on Friday. If job creation is higher than predicted – interest rate pricing should get worse. If job creation is lower than predicted – interest rate pricing should improve.

Most experts I follow recommend locking with the risk of rates going higher outweighing the possibility of rates going lower.
