April 14th: Look For Lower Rates Today

US retail sales fell 1.1% in March.  They were expected to rise.  The stock market is down, and the 10 year bond yield is falling.  Other factors affecting today's bond market rally:

  • Sabre rattling:  North Korea pulled out of the nuclear talks.
  • Profits eroding:  Producer prices were down in March by 1.2%.

If you're closing on a loan in the next 30 days, my recommendation is to lock.
