What May Impact Mortgage Rates the week of December 24, 2012

With the holidays upon us, we don’t have a lot of economic data scheduled for this week. Markets continue to be impacted with the “fiscal cliff” deadline approaching and Congress home for the holidays. Should a deal not come together to avoid falling off the “fiscal cliff” mortgage rates may actually improve as stocks may take a hit. The Bond and Stock Markets will close early today and reopen on Wednesday after the Christmas holiday.

Here are a few of the economic indicators scheduled for this week.

Tuesday, December 25: Merry Christmas!

Wednesday, December 26: S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Index

Thursday, December 27: Initial Jobless Claims; New Home Sales; Consumer Confidence

Friday, December 28: Chicago PMI and Pending Home Sales

Next week will be another short week with the New Year holiday. ‘Tis the Season! 

From my home to yours, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
