Ljittle Change in Interest Rates

Interest rates have remained pretty steady over the last couple of weeks, increasing slightly from a small decline which had taken place recently. The following is an excerpt from this week's newsletter on interest rates from HSH Associates :

"The upward tick for rates may persist into next week. A slew of fresh economic data is due, including the first look at 4th quarter 2010 GDP. The Federal Reserve holds a two-day meeting to chew over the level of growth, inflation and the efficacy of the on-going QE2 program, and we'll see reports covering durable goods, new home sales and a final January look at Consumer Sentiment. We'll figure on a few basis point rise in rates at most, barring any surprises from the Fed."
