Is a Hike in Interest Rates Coming in 2015?

GDP-GrowthMore economic reports hit the market on 12/23/14 than are generally seen in an entire week, with the most important report being the revision to US GDP (Growth Domestic Product – measures growth of the economy) for the 3rd quarter of 2014. The report revealed that our economy had in fact seen a 5.00% growth in the 3rd quarter. To put this into perspective, the reading of 5.00% quarterly growth is the largest reading our country has seen since the 3rd quarter of 2003 and is a clear indicator that our economy is ready for a higher interest rate environment in 2015.

Mortgage backed securities (mortgage bonds) have sold off as a result of the higher than expected 3rd quarter GDP results but have held ground at their 25 day moving average as a much poorer than expected Durable Goods Orders (This survey measures current industrial activity and provides an indication of future business trends) revealed a -.07% reading when market expectations were a reading of +1.8%. This, coupled with the bond market being closed for the holidays, will ensure that money stays parked in bonds. Investors tend to keep their money in the bond market during the holidays when the markets are closed to hedge against any unforeseen domestic or global issues that could cause a sell-off in our equity markets. This will keep bonds trading at current levels and mortgage rates holding ground at current levels until the market opens after the holidays for standard trading activity.

Interest rates are up today by .00125% on all fixed rate products (15, 20, 25 and 30 year fixed) and the bond market will be closed on Christmas Day. We still have 2 major employment reports hitting the market on 12/24/14 (Initial jobless claims and continuing jobless claims) that could have significant impact on mortgage rates if we see a surprise like we did in Q3 GDP growth, but for now the census is these reports will be in line with market expectations and pricing has already been factored in.
