3 Reasons why the interest rate ticked higher
October 18th, 2019 10:05 AM
Here are 3 reasons why:
  1. Solid corporate earnings and future positive guidance from many public companies were a pleasant surprise for many who were bracing for a far more disappointing outlook. As a result, Stocks moved higher last week at the expense of Bonds and home loan rates.

  2. U.S./China trade deal optimism continues. It's been slightly over a week since the U.S. and China came to a "handshake" trade agreement, and all signs are pointing to the deal being papered and signed in the coming weeks. This once uncertain event has become quite positive, and was another reason for Bonds to move lower and rates higher.

  3. A "Brexit" deal, where the U.K. will leave the European Union, has been drafted. The deal still has to pass a Parliamentary vote and carries some hurdles. But much like the U.S./China story, Brexit has gone from hopeless to a pretty good chance of a fix in a short amount of time. Once again, this is another uncertain event removed, and the renewed optimism helped Stocks and hurts home loan rates.
