Jason Obradovich, EVP of Capital Markets for New American Funding is back with the latest Mortgage Rundown. With core inflation under 2% and the 10-year Treasury under 3%, the Federal Open Market Committee held steady on interest rates last week.

Market Update: July 27, 2018

You probably noticed that there has been very little interest rate volatility recently. In fact the tight range on the 10yr Treasury in June was the smallest it’s been in several years.

Market Update: July 12, 2018

Last week was the ever important payroll report which showed 213k jobs added in June versus the 195k that was expected. A very positive sign but the more interesting piece of data was the unemployment rate which surprisingly went up from 3.8% to 4.0%. This was largely a result of a growing labor force, as the labor force participation rate also went up 0.2%.

Last week was another FOMC meeting where they raised the Fed Funds rate to the range of 1.75 to 2.0%, in what was a widely anticipated move. The attention now shifts to the meeting in September with the market pricing in an 81% chance the Fed moves rates for a third time this year. Also, there is now a 50% chance the Fed raises rates a fourth time in December.

If you've been following the market you've likely noticed that the 10yr Treasury is back down below 3%. When it seemed like nothing would stop the 10yr from rising to 3¼%, fears in Europe, mainly Italy caused a rush to safety. Right now the 10yr is trading right around 2.95% in a new range between 2.8 and 3.1%.

Market Update: May 24, 2018

The 10yr finally broke through the key 3.03% resistance level and traded all the way up to 3.11%. While it looked like the 10yr was going to continue its climb closer to 3.20%, there has been some international growth concerns that have the 10yr back down to 3.01% currently.

Market Update: May 10, 2018

The FOMC meeting came and went last week with little change in the Fed’s stance of 3-4 interest rate increases for 2018. If anything the Fed was slightly more dovish in their tone when they stated it’s possible they could slightly overshoot their inflation target of 2%. The translation of that means that perhaps there will only be three interest rate increases this year.
