    10-Year Yield at 3.0%—What Now for the Housing Market?

    The rise was the result of increased inflation (TIP) expectations nurtured by recent strong US economic data and a hawkish FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) bent on increasing short-term interest rates. The 3% yield on the 10-year bond is mostly a symbolic level for traders, as it’s been acting as a strong resistance in the last few years. Interest rates have been increasing steadily in the last two and half years, but the impact on the housing market (ITB) has been limited, as rates have been increasing very slowly.

    Trending: Soybean Prices Whipsaw on Trade War Fears

Homebuilders came in third as new home orders surged amid a strong housing demand that benefits from low unemployment and rising wages. Volatility continued to be of interest as markets ebb and flow amid global political uncertainty, while small-cap value equities are appealing to investors who just got out of the big names.
