This week the main economic news was the evolving US policy of tariffs and the release of the monthly Employment Report. Although there were surprises in both areas mortgage interest rates were largely unaffected and they ended the week unchanged from last week.
Next week the following events will occur and economic data will be released:
- The Consumer Price Index and the minutes from the 2/21 Fed meeting will be released on Wednesday; and
- There will be Treasury Auctions on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
