A question we hear often is what moves interest rates. While there are many indicators besides the 10 year treasury yield; Unemployment, the stock market, foreclosures, housing starts, sales time on market, availability of credit to non-prime and first time borrowers for just a short list. Besides the fact that it’s an election year and politics will always figure in. IMHO it’s way too early to begin any serious predictions on rates over the next several years. There are simply too many unanswered questions.
