Its interesting how on the day the FED increase their benchmark short term interest rate (FED discount rate) by .250% that mortgage rates actually improve by an eighth.

These are telling signs of how jittery the market is... over reacting  so much in the days leading up to the FED meeting/statement release, that it gave back .125% of what they had just recently taken away.

Quote of the week from Movement Secondary Market...

We should keep in mind these recent rate hikes are about returning monetary policy back to normal, not because the economy is too hot and must be cooled down with high rates.
The Fed is optimistic about its projections for inflation hitting its 2 percent target. This should allay fears that interest rates — mortgage rates, included — will surge too quickly anytime soon.
