FED Decision Leads to Lower Rates

Orange County, CA – The Federal Reserve Open Market Committee decided not to begin tapering it’s bond buying program, known as Quantitative Easing 3. This decision came as a surprise to the financial markets which had priced in such a change. This surprise led to a quick improvement in interest rates. Over the day they declined approximately 0.125%. Since that time, rates have continued to drop. The 10 yr. US Treasury bond had fallen to 2.61 from a high of 3.00. Since that time, Freddie Mac reports the average 30 year fixed mortgage rate has dropped from 4.50% to 4.32% after paying 0.7 discount points.
