    Rates are up about .625% in rate, year over year. The stock market is flourishing, especially in the NASDAQ. This trend looks to continue. Technical signals indicate that rates will continue to worsen. I would definitely lock in an interest rate as quickly as possible.

    o bombshells expected from the Fed next week but there may be additional clarity on how soon the Fed will begin normalizing their balance sheet. All signs pointing to a September kickoff.
