With so many questions running through minds of many about the direction of mortgage rates, the economy and generally what 2014 holds for our industry, we have invited MIKE FRATANTONI, the Chief Economist for the MBA to share his thoughts and latest economic projections.   Knowing that Fed Chairman Yellen has a bias towards a "zero interest rate policy" (ZIRP) and the fact that the Feds seem intent on stepping up tappering, where are mortgage rates headed... up or down?  Are mortgage originations going to pick up or continue to contract?  To get answers to these and many other questions, be sure to listen to this coming radio broadcast on Monday's, February 10th at 1 PM EST for the latest ECONOMIC UPDATE from our special guest, MIKE FRATANTONI.
