US Mortgage Applications Fall as Refi Demand Drops

giofls | Jan 30, 2013 07:54 AM ET Mortgage apps down on just a small increase in interest rates, which are still close to modern era lows? Not a good sign for the economy, and more reason the Fed needs to keep buying and keep interest rates at these low levels.

Not a good sign for the economy, and more reason the Fed needs to keep buying and keep interest rates at these low levels. === Should it be the opposite, actually? More like an evedence that spendig $45B/month program is invalid. As a matter of fact, rates were low even before the start of this mammoth program! Bernanke should just stop it.
