Tis the season and there are celebrations of Christmas all over the world. Here are a sampling of some of the trees that are displayed around the world.   The Capitol Christmas tree in Washington, D.C., is decorated with 3,000 ornaments that are the handiwork of U.S. schoolchildren. Encircling evergreens in the 'Pathway of Peace' represent the 50 U.S. states.                            A token of gratitude for Britain's aid during World War II, the Christmas tree in London's Trafalgar Square has been the annual gift of the people of Norway since 1947.                            Drink a glass of gluhwein from the holiday market at the Romer Frankfurt's city hall since 1405 and enjoy a taste of Christmas past.             The world's largest Christmas tree display rises up the slopes of M...

Mortgage bond prices fell last week pushing CT mortgage rates significantly higher. We saw selling pressure almost the entire week as housing and factory orders data was stronger than expected, the Fed Chairman mentioned rate hikes, and weekly jobless claims beat estimates. To top the already negative week, the employment report came in stronger than expected causing rates to spike even higher Friday morning. Interest rates finished the week worse by about 1 and 1/2-discount points. The continued Treasury auctions will gain a lot of attention this week. If foreign demand for the debt is weak we could see rates head higher. The first portion of the week is light regarding economic releases but the trade data Thursday and retail sales data Friday have the potential to result in mortgage i...

Mortgage bond prices rose last week pushing Connecticut mortgage rates lower. The economic data continues to be mixed. Personal income, outlays, and PCE inflation data were stronger than expected. Trading was thin and erratic. Thin trading conditions, news of the looming debt crisis in Dubai and a continued influx of Fed money into the mortgage bond market helped rates improve. Connecticut mortgage rates finished the week improved by about 1/2 of a discount point. The employment report will be the most important release this week. This is one of those weeks where there are many economic releases classified as very important or important. The potential for market volatility is increased when these types of reports are released. Be alert throughout the entire week. LOOKING AHEAD EconomicI...

Mortgage bond prices rose last week pushing CT mortgage rates lower. Mixed data resulted in up and down trading but within a relatively narrow range. Things were going well the first part of the week with CT rates improving until Wednesday when the consumer price index and the core came in higher than expected. Inflation, real or perceived, erodes the value of fixed income investments causing prices to fall and rates to rise. We saw some of that mid-week. Despite this, CT mortgage rates finished the week improved by about 1/8 to 1/4 of a discount point. The US Treasury will continue the record Treasury auctions with a $44 billion 2-year note auction Monday, $42 billion 5-year note auction Tuesday, and a $45 billion 7-year note auction Wednesday. The bond market will be closed Thursday f...

Mortgage bond prices rose last week pushing Connecticut mortgage rates lower. The Fed spent another $45 billion buying mortgage bonds between November 5th and the 11th. For all the criticism the Fed receives for the handling of the economy, they do deserve credit for keeping mortgage interest rates low throughout this year. How it all plays out in the long term is uncertain. The record Treasury auctions continued to be absorbed in trading without any major problems. For the week, Connecticut mortgage rates improved by about 7/8ths of a discount point. The consumer price index data Wednesday will be the most important release this week. Producer price index data along with retail sales data will set the tone for the start of the week. Inflation indications would likely hurt Connecticut m...

Congress gave final approval to legislation expanding an $8,000 tax credit for first-time home buyers. The House passed the extension on Thursday and President Obama is expected to sign it today. The new bill extends until April 30, 2010 for the tax credit for first-time homebuyers that would otherwise expire at the end of this month. Changes:   The new legislation will allow the credit for couples earning up to $225,000 a year and individuals earning up to $125,000. That's up from the current $75,000 limit for individuals and $150,000 for couples. Current Homeowners   The new bill will allow homebuyers who have owned their prior residence for at least five years to receive a $6,500 credit. Those who sell their new home or no longer use it as their main residence within three years woul...
