Conforming fixed rate and short term ARM rates are unchanged this morning as stocks continue their rally with financial shares leading the surge. Citigroup and Bank of America jumped more than 10% after Treasury Secretary Geithner said the government will use capital injections to spur lenders to sell distressed securities. The stock market is also responding positively to the $410 billion bill passed by Congress which will boost domestic spending, loosen the trade embargo on Cuba and fund thousands of congressional pet “earmark” projects!

“Conforming fixed rates are down again this morning after it was announced that Treasury Secretary Geithner will present a financial sector stabilization plan that will include government guarantees of losses on some assets and greater assistance for troubled homeowners. Plans like the Federal Reserve’s Term Asset Backed Lending Facility (TALF) hold great promise for restarting private credit flows again. Buyers of triple-A rated securities backed by credit cards, student loans and other assets can swap those bonds for Treasury securities that they can use for new financing.”
