Federal Open Market Committee Met and Voted


Last week, the Federal Open Market Committee met and voted to raise the benchmark interest rate. The move was widely expected, and mortgage rates ticked slightly upward following the announcement. The small business optimism index was unchanged and retail sales declined. New purchase applications dropped, but refinances increased. Jobless claims stayed low. The home builders’ housing market index dropped, but remains positive. Housing starts and building permits both declined.
