Rate Stalemate

What’s in the News: As expected, the Fed left its benchmark interest rate unchanged at its September 20th meeting.

However, a more gradual pace of rate increases is a real... Read more »

Running out of Patience

What’s in the News: Last Thursday, the 10 year Treasury note hit 2.03%, its lowest point of the year.

Did you know… Capital markets are expecting the Fed to raise rates two more times in 2017, and while it appears that the Fed is committed to a path of steady rate hikes, this would still only end the year with rates in the range of about 2.70%. With yields remaining low, the thirst for higher coupons can be sidelined by potential tax... Read more »
