    With the Fed termination of the QE3 program, look for rates now to start to move higher, as expected.

    Fed says fed funds rate to remain low for considerable time period. Fed sees labor market improvement. It's official. The Fed ends QE3. I see rates finally starting to climb toward the upper 4s by the end of the year … unless the rumors QE4 start to ramp up. Lock your rates if you can.

    The short-term techs call for higher Treasury yield and mortgage rates for the next week, but we will see another bull cycle around year-end.

    Rebounding equity markets, and some reassurance from the Fed, will keep a bit of upward momentum in rates over the next week.
