Eight days into the government shutdown and just nine days until the government hits the debt ceiling head on and investors are undecided with what to do with their money.
Both stocks and mortgage bonds closed the day to the downside Tuesday.
The good news is that we have seen mortgage backed securities (MBS) rally for a couple of weeks now due to the turmoil and that has brought us some lower rates. We are not back down to the lows of March and April, but we are lower than the highs we hit in mid September.
This has helped many of the fence sitters that thought they missed their opportunity to jump it into the market and take advantage of these historically low home loan rates.
