Global Economic data

  • The Peoples Bank of China (PBoC) unexpectedly reduced the 1 year LPR from 3.55% to 3.45% while leaving the 5 year LPR intact at 4.2%. Given that most mortgages are strongly correlated with the 5-year loan prime rate, this suggests that interest rates will have less of an impact on the housing market.
  • (Tropical Storm) The parched regions of California are receiving at least two years’ worth of rain thanks to Hilary.
