Sorry for not writing any blogs for a week. Tis is mainly because of the family emergency.
There are too much news last week. First, the stocksups and downs because of the Euro news and QEIII expectations.
QEIII may be good for the economy and the stocks,it might not be good for the interest rates. The interest rate went up around 0.25% to 0.5% the day Fed announced the first QE. We don't know exactly how the financial markets reacts to the possible QEIII, but the interest rate indeed went up Friday27th.
Another piece of the news is that Sandy Weill saidthat mega banks should be broken up. And it is the sameguy who lobbied the congress to dismantle Glass-Steagall.And they were successful. And I don't whether he shoulddo the samething if he were still citi CEO.
As for the loans turn-around time, some lenders arestill fast(closing of the loans within a month), someother lenders are very slow. One reason was Wells Fargoexit the wholesale market; another reason is thatcurrent wholesale lender would prefer to "over-work"their current staff, instead of hiring more stuff.
This is not good for the economy. We need the companyto hire more people. But it seems to me that they are reluctant to hire more during the slow and weakus economy.
Sorry for the "slowing" for the past money, one of myprocessors will be back from vacatio next week. We should have service and turn-around time as well.
