Tuesday: PPI, NY Fed Mfg

From Matthew Graham at Mortgage News Daily: Rates Jump Back Up to The Highs
Russia/Ukraine headlines continued throughout the day. Although this did cause some volatility at times, markets progressively tuned out. Moreover, geopolitical risk is not destined to be the key market moving consideration unless things get appreciably worse. Even then, the primary narrative remains focused on inflation and the Fed’s evolving policy response. [30 year fixed 4.10%]
