Podcast: CPI Inflation, The Fed & Mortgage Rates

Today’s podcast covers last week’s market drama with the lower-than-expected CPI print and the significant drop in mortgage rates.


I am no longer writing for my blog; all my work can be found at HousingWire; you can use my LoganVIP20 code to join HousingWire Plus. Also, I can’t join Twitter Spaces, a podcast, or an interview unless it goes through Press@HWMedia.com first.

I recently wrote about this topic too with many charts, of course. Know that last week’s market move was very extreme, and too many people were positioned for a hotter CPI print, hence the massive action.


Over the weekend, Fed governor Waller commented on the recent move in stocks and bonds. I wrote about this last night, taking some of his quotes and explaining why the Federal Reserve doesn’t want to loosen credit conditions.
