Mortgage Rate Increases Subside As US Economy Slows, Yield Curve Flattens While Russian/Ukraine Tensions Grow

As US/Russian tensions grow over Ukraine, The Federal Reserve may be forced to postpone or reduce planned rate increases and balance sheet trimming.

But in addition, we see US GDP slowing to near zero (1.285%) as the US Treasury 10Y-2Y yield curve has flattened to 41.684 BPS. The good news? Bankrate’s 30Y mortgage rate increases have slowed to 4.19%.

On a different note, I noticed the Chicago Bulls logo when turned upside-down looks like a space alien violating a crab.
