Lake Oswego Real Estate Oregon Financing Update

Non-farm payrolls for September were a miss at only +156k new jobs. Market expectations were in the neighborhood of 166k-180k. The unemployment rate also rose to 5% and the participation rate rose from 62.8% to 62.9%. Average hourly earnings rose +.2% and brings the year over year rate to 2.6% as expected.Market_Rates

All in all, this should still keep December on tap for a possible rate hike by the Fed as the numbers are still considered ‘solid enough’. Market reaction to the numbers this morning was overly muted and 10 yr yields look to settle out the week right around the support level of 1.74-1.75%.

As we look ahead to next week, we will have a shortened week due to the Monday holiday so things won’t get going until Tuesday. We expect the market to still hold the 1.75% level, however, if broken early in the week, we can expect rates to be on the rise.  Advice to clients would be to get locked in and move on down the road.
