WEEKLY RATE – Rates Slightly Improve After FED Minutes

WEEKLY RATE – Rates Slightly Improve After FED Minutes

August 2016

Rates have been fluctuating in a pretty narrow range since BREXIT brought interest rates back to record low levels.

Interest rates have stayed pretty similar over the past 2 weeks – teeter tottering up and down in a narrow range.

Last week, the Mortgage Backed Security (MBS) market closed trading up +23 bps, and this week the market is trading up + 9 bps through Wednesday.

Rate pricing had been moving up prior to the FED Minutes released on Wednesday.  The FED Minutes go over the commentary of the FED meetings.

It appears that a Federal Funds rate increase is on the table for September and December but they still need more data to make sure the labor/economic market is improving enough where they feel comfortable in making the increase.

Most investors feel that a Federal Funds rate increase in December or into 2017 is more likely than a move coming up in September.

Rates slightly higher than their lowest levels over the past 2 months – but still close to historic lows.
