Is it Mars or the Moon?  It was 11pm, CT when I took this picture with my iphone in Austin Lakeway, Texas last night (just in case you were wondering what I used to capture the image).  I knew that there would be a Lunar Eclipse however I didn't expect the moon to look like Mars once the Earth had completely blocked the light from the sun.  The Moon appeared to darken from left to right and the last quarter of it took a very short time.  I'd expected to begin to see light almost as fast as it disappeared however that didn't happen... it took hours before the Moon gradually began to brighten again.Last night was a perfect night to go outside and observe this phenomenon in the night sky.  The temperature was in the low to mid 80's and the sky was clear with just a touch of humidity in the...

A key manufacturing index fell well below recent levels while Goldman Sachs cuts its economic growth forecasts for 2022. The New York State Manufacturing Index fell to 11.6 this month from 24.60 in April and below the 17 expected. New orders declined, and shipments fell at the fastest pace since early in the pandemic. Looking ahead, those surveyed showed subdued optimism about the six-month outlook.Economic growth across the U.S. is slowing down from the post-shutdown activity. The Atlanta Fed's GDNow (Gross Domestic Product) forecast sees a 1.8% increase for Q2 2022 down from 2.6% in its last release. If the 2nd quarter comes in at just above 1% and you couple that with the -1.4% 1st quarter GDP - there is essentially zero growth in the first half of 2022. GDPmeasures price changes in ...

Mortgage backed securities were up 25 basis points today at 99.59 having closed 545 points below the 200 day moving average. The conforming rate is at 5.00% today.  My jumbo pricing is now sizzling! The 30 year jumbo for $1 million was around 4.50%. Whether in New England, the Mid Atlantic or the Midwest or anywhere else in the U.S., history tells us it is time to refinance!!
