For the Week Ending October 9, 2015
The Labor Market Conditions Index for September was 0, signaling a weakening market. This could help keep rates low.
Low inflation and global economic weakness, both good for rates, are a concern to the Fed. Many economists think the Fed won't raise policy rates until 2016.
Weak jobs data last week points to a cooling off of the U.S. economy. While more data is needed to support this speculation, it could be helpful for rates.
A reported survey of property managers found rents increasing by up to 8% in the next year. Primary reasons cited were increased demand and low inventory.
Mortgage applications jumped by 25% last week. The unusually large movement is being attributed to low rates and the rollout of new TRID regulations.
Per Fannie Mae's latest survey, consumer confidence in both home buying and selling increased. Of those surveyed, 64% say it is a good time to buy a home.
Three vampire bats live in a cave surrounded by three castles. One night, the bats bet on who can drink the most blood.
The first bat comes home with blood dripping off his fangs. He says, "See that castle over there? I drank the blood of three people."
The second bat returns with blood around his mouth. He says,"See that castle over there? I drank the blood of five people."
The third bat comes back covered in blood. He says, "See that castle over there?"
The other bats nod. "Well," says the third bat, "I didn't."
Rate movements and volatility are based on published, aggregate national averages and measured from the previous to the most recent midweek daily reporting period. These rate trends can differ from our own and are subject to change at any time.
