Turkey & Idaho Mortgage Rates

Turkey causing mortgage rates in Idaho to sink?

Aug 06

Mortgage Rates flat, but this week could change that.

Mortgage rates are trending lower as traders are still trying to digest Friday's Job Numbers.  Was it low because business are not hiring or was it low because there are no workers.  I am of opinion of the latter, the US is at full employment, and thus wages are going to have to increase, thus inflation, and inflation is bad for Rates.  Today, we have Trump Tweeting about various items which is causing rates to decrease.  I am pretty cautious this week, as rates are in a position to break out and increase, but watch out on Trade Tweets.  Special note, we do get CPI or Consumer Price Index, which is gauge on inflation, all eyes will be focused on this report this week.

Mortgage rates are on the rise again

Mortgage rates up last week, but not as much as they could of been. All eyes are going to be on 3 items this week. 1-Trump summit, if things good good, rates will worsen. 2-Fed Meeting on Wednesday, .25 is baked into rates but it will be the comments that will touch off rate increase or decrease. And 3rd, European and Japanese Reserve Banks will all comment his week as well. It should not be a great week for rates.
