Last Week in Review: What the Market Is Saying
Solid economic numbers continue to be reported. We are seeing a historically strong labor market, rising wages, high consumer and business confidence, and an overall boost in housing. Bonds hate good news and there is simply too much good news to go around at the moment.Home loan rates continue to hover right near three-year lows. There are many "smart" folks on Wall Street who say rates are going to push even lower at some point...and they may be right. But what if they're wrong? What if rates have bottomed for the foreseeable future?
