Quote Attributed to Sean Becketti, chief economist, Freddie Mac.
"This week the 10-year Treasury yield continued its climb as an increasing number of financial market participants foresee a December rate hike after a series of positive economic data releases. The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage moved up 5 basis points to 3.47 percent in this week's survey, the first increase in one month. Even though we've seen economic activity pick up, consumer price inflation and implied inflation expectations remain below the Federal Reserve's 2 percent target."
