The light we were seeing “is” the end of the tunnel which should produce better mortgage pricing into Friday’s Employment release

Given that fact that we closed above the 8 day, many bearish signals (ADX, Trend Intensity, etc.) have been neutralized, crippling the bears and reducing the probability of continued bearish trending. In other words, the light we were seeing “is” the end of the tunnel which should produce better mortgage pricing into Friday’s Employment release (7:30 am cst).

FOMC announced that it will only purchase about $175 billion of agency debt , slightly less than the $200 billion it previously announced

FOMC announced that it will only purchase about $175 billion of agency debt , slightly less than the $200 billion it previously announced. It continues to anticipate that “economic conditions are likely to warrant exceptionally low levels of the federal funds rate for an extended period”, an expectation it has repeated in every release since March. Fed now says household spending “ appears to be expanding”, a more optimistic outlook than the path Fed members saw in September. The Fed also repeated its assumption that economic activity will “likely remain weak for a time” and that stimulus measures combined with market forces will contribute to a gradual resumption of growth. Lastly, the Fed continues to see inflation as remaining “subdued for some time”.
