Ten-year bonds rise

“Treasury prices sold off Thursday, pushing the 10-year yield above 5% for the first time in nearly four years, after unexpectedly strong retail sales and consumer-sentiment data advanced a case for the Federal Reserve to keep lifting rates”

This is an all time high since 2002. What does this mean to you? Well if you have an ARM then its time to re-finance and get yourself into a fixed rate mortgage. This increase in 10 year bond will force the rates of ARM’s to increase which means your monthly payment will go up. For some it will hurt there budgets some and for others this will be the difference between making your mortgage payment and not.

The good news is if you are a bond investor you can look forward to a more higher return on your investment.
