Are you in the process of getting a loan, and when do you expect to close.

qe3 isnt coming. fed cant control this move
Must be due to lower inflation.
look at moves in 10yr..lending rates rise for 3 main reasons:
1. rising credit risk - saw that 2008-2009
2. rising FNMA mortgage bonds - drifts with market sentiment on future inflation expectations + credit risk
3. bank lending app demand clogs pipeline - banks may raise rates
I'd have to go along with Macro_m on this one.
In the light of things looking better in the U.S., the market wants to hold dollars and short Treasuries,” said Shahab Jalinoos, a senior currency strategist for UBS AG in Stamford Connecticut. “These kind of yield moves would have made the market buy dollar-yen, but on top of that you have clearly divergent central bank policy with aggressive easing in Japan.” A short position is a bet that an asset will decline in value.
or put in another way, bet that rates will rise.
Wow, 2.29% for the 10 year is so high!!!!!! When you compare it to the trailing one year average of 2.46%, two year average of 2.80%, 3 year average of 3.02%, five year of 3.38%, and ten year average of 3.87%.
Oh no wait, its still below all of these.
...and if people are worried about inflation, why was gold down 3% today? And down considerable from its $1900 high?
Dollar up -> gold down.
When hard assets are depreciating, getting 0% on a 10 yr bond makes perfect sense. Just a place to park and given the 'successful' stress tests maybe bond holders will finally ask for more than 0% return on their money.... Or they'll go park it elsewhere.
Yeh. Higher interest rates. Bullish for nyc re.
