    • Bonds Ultimately Shrug Off Stronger Jobs Data December 2, 2022
      Bonds Ultimately Shrug Off Stronger Jobs Data Today saw a fairly impressive round trip for rates following the stronger-than-expected jobs report.  The initial reaction was clear and unsurprising.  NFP (and especially wages... recently mentioned by Powell) came out higher and rates immediately jumped.  Stocks also tanked on the news because both sides of the market […]

      Mortgage rates had been in a holding pattern for nearly 3 weeks following the November 10th CPI inflation data.  On that single day, the average 30yr fixed rate fell by a record amount (as far as day-over-day record keeping is concerned, and we don't have daily records prior to 2009).  That took rates from the […]
