Is it sundown for housing and mortgage markets with Fed quantitative tightening (QT)?
Freddie Mac’s 30-year mortgage commitment rate just rose to its highest level since … The Fed initiated Quantitative Easing (aka, fanatical money printing) during the financial crisis.
The good news? The US inflation report is likely to show a slowing of the inflation rate to around 8% YoY and -0.1% MoM. Why? Gasoline prices are cooling thanks to the global economic slowdown.
While gasoline and food prices are falling, CORE US inflation, the inflation rate excluding food and energy, is expected to rise to around 6.1% YoY and +0.30% for August.
But watch out as winter approaches!
