Tuesday AM

Chicago PMI came in lower at 58.5 but Consumer confidence was higher at 106.3. The market is quiet awaiting the Feds at 2 PM EDT . Rates are expected to go up again but what will they say???? Stay tuned. Our market is better by .125. Bonds are Flat.

Monday, January 30, 2006

Monday AM

Personal Income was up slightly at .4 and personal Spending was way up at .9. Our market is off .125 because the Feds meet Tuesday to raise rates. This may be the last time for awhile. That could be a sigh of relief for rates. We suggest locking today and staying out of trouble.

Friday Market Notes

Our Market opened on the plus side, but has fallen off slightly. Bonds are -4/32. New Home Sale were at 1269K, a little higher than expected. The big news this morning was that the GDP was only 1.1%, much lower than the 2.8% that was expected. However, the Feds still anticipate GDP to increase in 2006, but not at the same pace as the past 2 years. Overall, if you have locks today, try to get them in early, as the market may drift down late in the afternoon. Have a productive day, and an excellent weekend!

Thursday, January 26, 2006

Thursday AM

Durable Orders were down to 1.3% and Initial Claims were up to 283K. Our market is now off .20 again. Rates have gone up a full 1/8 since Monday and heading toward a 1/4 increase. As we said yesterday today would be a bad day because of the Indicators. Friday brings New Home Sales with not much change expected. We shall see. Stay covered and stay happy. It could be another long down day.

Wednesday, January 25, 2006

Wednesday AM

Housing starts were way down to 6.6 M. That is a big hit to the economy. Our market is off .20 and bonds are off .50. Rates are going to creep back up so stay locked and stay happy. Thursday brings Durable orders (expected down) and initial Claims (expected up ) which are expected to further pound our market!

All quiet this AM. The markets are flat. The markets are worried about the oil problems as oil heads toward $70 again with the problems in the middle East. Wed. Brings Existing Home Sales which are expected to be down. That could hamper our market.

Monday, January 23, 2006

Monday Late AM

Leading Indicators came in down at +.1. That is not saying much for growth. We have trouble ahead. The economy is soft and not in shape to improve much. Oil is back up near $68.00. Our market is off about .15 and bonds are off nearly .50. Stay locked and stay happy. Wednesday brings Home Sales (expected down) which will not help us.

Friday, January 20, 2006

It is very quiet in the bonds this AM. There are no indicators today. Our market is flat but could improve if the stock market continues down ( now off 111 points). Bonds are about +.15. Stay tune for possible changes this PM. Enjoy the weekend.

Thursday, January 19, 2006

Friday AM

Bonds are better by .35 and our market is better by .125 this AM. Retail Sales were lower than expected at +.7%. The economy is not booming as some may think.

If we see any big changes we will tell you.
