Rates could move higher!

This week there’s a lot of economic data that markets will be watching that could push mortgage rates higher. If the economic data points to a strong economy, that means it is less likely the Fed will cut rates anytime soon… and that means mortgage rates will suffer for the week.

What’s affecting rates this week:

  • Economic data: · This week has a full calendar, with reports every day as well as Treasury auctions through the week that could influence markets and affect mortgage rates. The biggest reports come out Thursday and Friday.
  • Month end: · The underlying markets that set mortgage rates could be affected by traders positioning portfolios for month’s end.
  • The Fed:  Rates hit their recent best levels in December when markets thought the Fed would be forced to cut in March or May to avoid doing damage to the economy, but mortgage rates have moved higher now that markets are speculating the Fed won’t cut till June or even July.

Rates may creep higher!

  • This week is likely to see mortgage rates move slightly day-to-day and possibly creep a bit higher by the end of the week. Rates will not drop significantly from here until we see some data showing the labor market and economy is weakening and inflation is falling, and we won’t see that data until at least March.

    What’s affecting rates this week:

    • Economic data:  The minutes from last month’s Fed meeting come out on Wednesday along with some economic reports on Thursday. There is nothing on Tuesday or Friday, and markets were closed on Monday.
    • The Fed: Mortgage rates are not set by the Fed, but are strongly influenced by Fed actions. Rates were lower when markets were forecasting Fed rate cuts to start in March, and have moved higher as the chances of that happening have grown slim. Speculation now calls for Fed rate cuts to most likely start in June.

Rates will react to inflation data!

  • Rates will react to inflation data

    This week rates could move either way, depending on how the inflation data comes out. If inflation moves lower, markets will expect the Fed to react by cutting rates sooner this year and that would help mortgage rates move lower this week. However, if the inflation readings don’t come in low enough, it could spook markets to listen to the Fed’s message that it wants to hold rates longer, and that would push mortgage rates up as much as .25%.

    What’s affecting rates this week:

    • Economic data: Tuesday brings the most important consumer inflation data, with retail sales data on Thursday and wholesale inflation on Friday. The inflation data will be affected by new factors used in seasonal adjustments, making it harder than normal to forecast what we may get for readings.
    • Fed speakers: There will be more members of the Fed out speaking this week, and depending on how the data comes out they could have more of an effect on mortgage rates for the week.

What’s moving the conventional rates?

 

This week rates are likely to move higher as markets give up on a March Fed rate cut and start to question if we will even see one at the next meeting in May. Mortgage rates will creep higher if markets believe that the Fed will not cut until later in the year, and the strong economic data and labor market data we’ve seen the last few weeks makes it unlikely the Fed will need to cut rates to stimulate the economy anytime soon.

 

What’s affecting rates this week:

  • Economic data: · There is no economic data this week that is likely to either push mortgage rates higher or lower.

 

  • Fed speakers: There will be members of the Fed speaking every day this week, sharing their opinion on when the Fed should start cutting rates. Mortgage rates will creep higher if markets believe the Fed will not cut until later in the year.

What’s affecting rates this week:

  • The Fed: The Fed is expected to leave its policy rate unchanged at this meeting but markets will be looking for signs about when cuts will begin, especially Wednesday afternoon during Powell’s press conference. If traders think Powell is leaving the door open for rate cuts sooner, we could see mortgage rates improve. However, if Powell ruins any hope of cuts starting at the March meeting, mortgage rates may move higher. 
  • Jobs data: Although there are a few different labor reports during the week, Friday’s jobs data will have the most effect on mortgage rates. Labor market weakness will help rates, strength will hurt them

What’s moving the conventional rates?

 

Although starting the week off a little bit better than Friday, mortgage rates could move higher this week if we continue to see markets give up on a March Fed rate cut. The likely best case scenario is that rates hold steady, because it is unlikely they will improve much from here this week.

 

What’s affecting rates this week:

  • Economic data: · Thursday brings the preliminary 4th qtr GDP, along with unemployment claims. Friday we get the PCE inflation data, the Fed’s favored inflation gauge, which could influence rates to end the week.

 

  • The Fed: Markets have been pricing in a Fed rate cut in March the last few weeks, which helped mortgage rates fall from October highs. However, markets are finally listening to Fed members who say a March cut is unlikely, causing rates to creep up, but there is room for rates to move higher yet.

What’s moving the conventional rates?

 

Mortgage rates could see some more improvement this week if markets continue to bet on Fed rate cuts to start at the March meeting. Despite labor market and economic data that points to the Fed keeping policy rates at current levels, markets believe the Fed will have to start cutting much sooner than it expects if it wants to avoid a recession. Rates are unlikely to move higher unless that belief falters.

 

BUT WAIT. Now we get news the Euro Central Banks are pushing back and are proposing that rates stay the same in 2024.

 

WE WILL KEEP AN EYE ON WHAT THE EURO’S HAVE OVER THE FED AND IF THEY WILL STILL LOWER RATES IN 2024.

 

What’s affecting rates this week:

  • Economic data: · A holiday shortened week brings Wednesday’s retail sales data and the Fed’s Beige Book on the economy. Not much other data to worry about this week.
  • The Fed: Mortgage rates continue to reflect the belief that the Fed will need to cut rates six times in 2024, although Fed officials have been saying it will be less. If markets start to waiver in the belief that the Fed will cut rates dramatically this year to avoid a recession, we could see mortgage rates creep higher.
