Until just recently, longer term rates were following short term rates down…
Good News From Interest Rates
While the FOMC does control short term rates, they have much less control of longer term rates and actually by lowering short term rates they were hoping for this….
Higher long term rates are our friend … Possible reasons:
- Market participants way of being more positive
- Tariff talks proceeding
- Less fear
- Expectation of future growth
If we showed a longer term chart you would see it still has a ways to go as we are only nearing 2% – half full guys… have to start somewhere… For now, good news!
