St Louis Interest Rates Remain Low In Spite of Fed Pull Out

Paramount Mortgage Company - St LouisA few months ago, it was widely believed that the Fed’s massive purchase of mortgage backed securities was keeping long-term interest rates artificially low in order to stimulate the economy. It’s been six weeks since the Fed stopped buying mortgage backed securities, and  there is no sign that that the end of the purchase program has caused mortgage rates to rise by any meaningful amount.

Given the uncertainty of the monetary crisis in Europe and the mystery of  a stock market crash and rebound,  markets continue to be very volatile with large swings from day to day– this should continue to make dollar denominated assets, i.e. Treasuries, Mortgage Backed Securities etc. appealing.
