Following the presidential election in the United States, mortgage rates jumped from 3.57% last week, to 3.94% this week. This will cause a surge of home sales and refinances on mortgages in order to slow down rates in the housing market. While a 0.37% difference doesn’t seem like a big difference, it can mean the difference of thousands of dollars over the course of a 30-year mortgage.

This bullish forecast on FMCC and FNMA was sent to current I Know First subscribers on November 10th, 2016. 

Before making any trading decisions, consult the latest forecast as the algorithm constantly updates predictions daily. While the algorithm can be used for intra-day trading the predictability tends to become stronger with forecasts over longer time-horizons such as the 1-month, 3-month and 1-year forecasts.
