OGA Update 11112022
Record Setting Single Day Rate Drop
Market Minute

On Thursday 11/10, we set a record for single day drop in rates after inflation came in cooler than expected. 

The change in rates was triggered by the CPI (Consumer Price Index) report. This report is one of two key inflationary measures, and it came in better than expected. The bond reacted to the report and because bonds dictate interest rates, we saw a change in a positive direction for the mortgage industry and consequently the housing marketing. 

Rates for the 30 year fixed closed at 6.62% which was a 0.6% drop!
