Las Campanas Santa Fe Market Rates

Well, the Federal Reserve FINALLY made its move to increase the federal funds rate by .25% point.  This means that Prime Rate for most banks will increase to 3.5%.   The bond and stock markets have been anticipating this increase.  However, investors were unsure until the Feds actually made their move.  The Dow Jones reflects, at this point in the day, investor relief, and has gained over 200 points.  However, as we’ve discussed previously, when the stock market gains, it is usually at the expense of the bond market.  The 30-yr bond is slightly off, which will reflect in upward pressure in tomorrow’s rates if the individual markets hold their current positions in tomorrow’s opening.  We may begin to see rates creep upward in the next few weeks.
