Seattle Real Estate Mortgage Rates Today 4/19/11: Safe Haven trade still on uncertainty in Europe and the Stock Market move lower has helped bonds. But a warning from Standard and Poor’s has been made. They see a potential downgrade on the rating of the U.S. Bonds within two years if government cannot come to an agreement to have a meaningful budget cut in spending. Here is a great link from the New York Times to better understand how strong the U.S. is compared to other countries in our ability to repay our debt. It is hopeful and Wall Street believes so also that Congress will be able to set forth a plan to avoid a downgrade which would slow even further the economic recovery. However with more cuts in spending and a slower recovery the concern of deflation will once again arise and the Federal Reserve will do what it takes to curb this. Quantitative Easing AGAIN, yes a potential Quantitative Easing 3 has already been in the discussion and gambled on Wall Street. Should this happen we have to keep in mind what each QE has done to mortgage rates. Clear example going back to November 3, 2010. Quantitative Easing 2 announced by the Federal Reserve and rates jumped by almost .50% over the course of 48 hours and have not dropped to those levels since. This could be repeated if QE3 does come to play. We will obviously closely monitor this.
