WEEKLY RATE – Fed Increases Federal Funds Rate, Mortgage Rates Improve

December 2015

The FED finally did it. After years of talking about it the FED raised the Federal Funds rate to .5% on Wednesday. In the days leading up to the announcement , mortgage interest rate pricing spiked in anticipation of them raising the rate. Then once the announcement happened, interest rate pricing improved the end of the day on Wednesday up through today – Monday December 21st.

Overall, the Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market ended the week closing down -29 bps but rallied up + 40 bps on Thursday and Friday.

The FED declared that their goal is to raise the Federal Funds rate to 1.4% by the end of 2016.

It’s getting to be Christmas time when a lot of traders go on vacation. When there are less traders, the market can be very volatile as a larger pool of traders typically balances out the market more.
