PIMCO Betting Against US Treasuries. Interest Rates Are Going Up.

When PIMCO bets against US Treasuries, you can bet that interest rates are headed up.

The headline this morning on Bloomberg reads: "Pimco Total Return Cuts Government-Related to Negative, Boosts Cash Assets."  PIMCO is the most successful bond trading company in the US.  I check Bill Gross's opinion on the bond market daily (when I'm not in Oklahoma working cows.") 

Fixed rate assets like Certificates of Deposit will benefit, but mortgage rates will not.  Mortgages are set to rise, as they have been doing for the past three weeks.

Even so, astute REALTORS and Mortgage Originators will do well if we keep our finger on the pulse of the market and communicate regularly with our clients.  There is opportunity in ANY market.

Well, we have been saying interest rates will be increasing and it is time to buy; this will only get more people back into purchasing mode! Thanks for the information!

Mike, that's just ducky. More good news for our industry.

I may be able to use this to speed up a couple of my buyers.

Thanks for the heads up.
