Interest rate trends: Today – Higher; 10 days – Flat; 25 days – Flat.
Interest rate recommendation: Locking
MBS’s started the day doing well, but have turned worse in the last few minutes. MBS’s took a hit yesterday afternoon as investors took the opportunity to sell and take some profits. In economic news today, Inflation remains stable, Retail Sales is slightly better, but Existing Home Sales declined by -3.2% in October. The Fed’s Bullard made it known that QE3 tapering is on the table for December, but in last night’s speech by Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, he reiterated there will be no tapering until there is strong evidence the labor market has a strong hold on improving. Most analysts still believe there will be no tapering until earliest March 2014. Short term, as in days and weeks, we are recommending locking, longer term, as in month(s), we are feeling that rates will remain low. Have a great day!
