Weekly Commentary and Economic Update
In a quiet week leading up to the Thanksgiving holiday, the 30-year mortgage rate dipped 2 basis points to 3.95 percent. Economic releases over the last week contained no major surprises, and none are expected in the next few days. The year is winding down, and the only remaining market dates of note are December 4 – the last employment report of the year – and December 15-16, the long-awaited FOMC meeting.
