Another GREAT week for rates, as we have seen rate trend lower for 9 weeks! We are going to because a little more cautious as Trade talks with China seem to be making progress and there might be a little give/take in government shutdown.

With the sell off last week in stocks, it was anticipated at rates would improve nicely, but when it all settled, we have just a slight improvement. This week is HUGE as we have the Federal Reserve on Wednesday and LOTS of data on Friday, right before a major holiday. Will the Fed Raise rates (which would be good for us) on Wednesday, or wait until January? This week is going to be rough.
