There seems to be little standing in the way of the stock market rising these days. Through the first 4 trading days of the week the market is up 275 points.
Despite all of the doom and gloom predictions that the markets were going to get hurt as the Fed continued to taper their stimulus program, none of that has come to be. Additionally, mortgage rates were expected to have risen by now.
What is interesting is that just this week mortgage rates hit the lowest point in a year according to Freddie Mac.
