This year has started out as one of the most volatile New Years ever.  Many are wondering if all this volatility will change the MBA's 2016 forecast.  Therefore, we have invited back as our special guest, MICHAEL FRATANTONI, Senior Vice President and Chief Economist with the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA). Michael will be providing his latest economic update and will be answering the following questions:  

  1. Given the latest economic data such as the December jobs report, retail sales, etc, what can we expect for Q4 GDP? 
  2. What might be driving the volatility? 
  3. What does it mean for the economy? 
  4. Given the Fed's December hike and the market's reaction, what are the potential next steps from the FOMC? 
  5. Any updates to the MBA rate and volume forecast given the latest data? 
  6. Are there any new trends developing as it relates to credit availability? 
  7. Any indications on how TRID is impacting profitability?

Those are just some of the questions we will be discussing in today's "hot topic" segment.  Don't miss this important and informative podcast and tell others about it.
