I hope you have been enjoying your week so far. It seems like the market is picking up a little bit due to interest rates.

The Federal Reserve raised short-term interest rates, which generally increase rates on Home Equity Lines of Credit and on cars and credit cards. It also helps slow down inflation, and it slows down the economy. The Fed also changed its stance on future rate hikes and said they will now be deciding on rate increases on a meeting-by-meeting basis. The Fed’s stance is a change as they are worried about a full-blown recession. The good news is that there are still plenty of jobs, so some don’t want to call it a recession. The bad news is that the GDP numbers came out, and the growth for the second quarter was negative .9%, and recession or no recession is not a good number. The best news is that 30-year mortgage rates have dropped a full percent in the past week and a half, and with a little price dip, payments are closer to where they were in January! Remember that recession means lower rates, and inflation means higher rates. Who will win this battle? Let’s hope these rate increases have done their job and that inflation goes and rates go back down quickly. Heck, at this pace, we will be at 3% in October! LOL!

Interest rates are better and better every day! Let’s hope nothing whacky happens and turns the rates the other way!
