Podcast: Bonds & Mortgage Rates

Today’s podcast discusses the recent moves in the 10-year yield and mortgage rates. Yes, even today, we still haven’t been able to break above my critical 1.94% level. Also, I discuss the recent existing home sales report and what to look for in 2022 from these numbers. I give a take on the current housing starts data which was boosted on a one-off event that won’t happen next month. 


Here is a link to the recent article. Remember, I am no longer writing articles on my blog. If you haven’t joined Housing Wire Plus, please feel free to use my VIP code: loganvip50.
