THE WEEK IN REVIEW

The Federal Open Market Committee minutes were released on Wednesdaystating that a rate hike in December is still a possibility. Members agreed that economic, labor market, and inflation conditions for a move could be met by then, but want to hold off on future increases until international financial conditions have eased.

The 10 year treasury has been trading around 2.24 the past few days. If we see a close at or below 2.19 then we should continue to see lower rates.
