Wall Street praises out going FED Chair Yellen for leading a 44.00% volume increase since 2012 according to Wall Street.
FEDERAL RESERVE BOARD 11-15-2017
RATE HIKE POSITION ~ Unchanged
New FED Chair is Appointed as Janet Yellen the out going Chair, a Democratic Appointee
of the past Administration 2008-2016 is relieved.
A new FED Chair has been nominated.
Yellen Report Card:
American Family Household Debt Up 0.9% or in Dollars, American families "are in debt-$114 Billion Dollars in just the SECOND QUARTER of 2017." The -$114 Billion is only from April, May June 2017.
In addition, Wall Strret Financial Markets have been allowed to inflate their PE ratios and related Concepts which is supported by the FED as the FED abandons Main Street America.
America's economy is so depressed that Americans are having to borrower money to stay afloat.
Stock Market Up 2012-17 44.00% .
Real Estate Market Down (-0.51%) for 2017.
Retail Sales Down 0.24% for 2017.
Auto Sales Down Compared to 2016 for 2017.
Federal Reserve Board raises Prime Lending Rate results 12-16-2106.
Stock Market Crash 12-18-2016:
Wall Street Losses (- 1 Trillion 34 Billion Dollars)
Adjusts Prime Lending Rate Up 12-16-2016
Adjusts Prime Lending Rate Up 6-14-2017
Adjusts Prime Lending Rate Up 3-16-2017
Inflation is under the already to low FED Target Rate of 2.0% from 2012 to 2017. To low for economic growth in any of the Top 10 Economies in the World..
USA Foreclosures are Up 102,091 in the last 60 days. That's Up 17% in 60 days. Alarming news. America is heading back to the 2008-2016 Administration fall out from the Mortgage Crises another Government/Wall Street/Bank fraud scheme that went bad.
Janet Yellen, out going FED Chair and the majority of the FEDS Board of Governors thinks all is well with Americans and America.
The out going FED Chair and the remaining FED Board Of Governors in a majority, share the position that the USA Federal Reserve Board is separate in its decisions from the American Economy and therefore they do not have to share the same focus as the current Trump administration.
So, in the final analysis the FED has created a 3 Trillion 2 Hundred Billion of debt, holding American's ultimately responsible. The FED is going to "write down" which means whom ever received the 3.2 Trillion Dollars (special interest groups in whole or in part are not going to have to pay it back) and America and Americans are going to take the loss. The loss position was incurred by the 2008-2016 Administration.
Therefore, Poverty increases, Middle Class/Businesses goes further in debt and Upper Class/Corporations do not have to pay their debts from 2008-2016.
As of 11-15-2017
Editors comment: Wall Street economics up 44% American citizen economy 0.
Wall Street did indicate that the lowering of the Unemployment Insurance Benefit Rate and Actual Unemployed in America was from the economy surviving the longest recession in history to date.
If the average American's income was up 44% from 2012 then Americans would feel the Chair had done a good job also.
A FUTURE FINANCIAL OUTLOOK
The new jobs being created are minimum wage jobs and not jobs that are viable to a growing economy.
The comparable difference is a 2 wage earner family at $8.00 per hour has to hold 4+ jobs (2.5 jobs each per wage earner at 30 hours per job or about 60-70 hours a week per wage earner x 2 wage earners) to meet the Gross Income, bottom line purchasing power of the average American financial requirement of $56,516.00. annual income.
Bottom line Purchasing Power is defined as being able to have a home, a car less than 5 years old and go to the store to buy more than just grocery items and a savings and retirement account.
Speculation: 160,000 new jobs at minimum wage of $8.00 per hour is financially equivalent to 64,000 jobs to meet the average viable consumer income at the bottom level.

Higher interest rates is not the answer. Rates need to decrease under 4% to bring the market back to a growth level anytime soon. A possible scenario that may work would be back up to the growth level of the 3.50% 30 years rates as they were in mid 2016. Then look at easing them up annually at .25% if necessary, to maintain a healthy level of growth in the real estate market.
REAL ESTATE FUTURES EXPANDED:
Prime Lending Rate Unchanged to date 11-15-2017:
4.25% up +0.75% from 12-2016 to 6-2017.
The first quarter of the a New USA 2017 Recession is in the books.
Washington is to busy with war and international efforts to recognize that the USA is down trending into a deeper recession.
Leading economic indicators that have always driven the Capitalistic USA economy are being ignored.
It appears that the American voter has been put on the back burner or is it the front burner by their elected officials.
Real Estate Sales are in negative figures with Retail Sales at -0% and 0 levels for 2017 and Interest Rates are going up quarterly as we approach the Holiday season.

Real Estate is approximately 50% of the USA economy. It not just the buying and selling of a home or commercial property. It's the building, nuts bolts, nails wood, plastic and all the other products that go into a home plus labor.
These products, if made in America, create good paying jobs and a strong contribution to the United Sates Gross Domestic Product and the ability to sell it in America.
Under the premise that the real estate market and new home and commercial markets are not operating at close to a 100% growth, recovery and sustained growth, one of the longest term recession the USA has experiences, 2008-2017 is not going to resolve itself.
The US Government and Federal Reserve has to not only support Wall Streets speculative activities but also support Main Street America growth activities as it should be. The focus on "America and Americans First", has been abandoned and needs of the middle class system must be reinstated to evolve from the current recession/depression non growth that the USA has been experiencing from 2008-2017.

SPECULATION JULY TO DECEMBER 2017:
Reprint from August 2017
Mortgage Interest Rates have not moved with the Interest Rate Hikes from the FED in recent months.
In order to income qualify for a average priced home of $263,800. you need 2 Americans of the Lower Income Class of $30,000. or less annual usually working 34 hours or less a week. This class is comprised of over 50%+ of American workers at this time. You must also meet the credit qualifying for the lower Upper Class individuals.
Or a top wage earner from the lower Upper Income Class that ears about $25.50 per hour for 40 hours a week, $53,040 annual.
Effectively, at this time the middle class appears to have been eliminated.
Home Values no longer appear to be depressed in the Real Estate Home Buyer market. But they are. The reason for the leveling of home prices throughout the USA is because the lower financial end of the market, homes selling under $250,000 are not selling in as high numbers of purchases for the last 30 to 60 days.
Homes over $250,000 and up have not been impacted by the FED Rate Hikes.
Partial Reprint of May 2017
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are the two largest Mortgage Banks in the USA. Both are still under the US Government Conservator ship.
The result is, that mortgage interest rates are not in really moving with the market. They are moving under the control of the Government.
