来自主题: Tennis版 - USTA Ratings and How the System Works
很好的文章,解释的很清楚。
很多球友问评级,或者用NTRP guide line自评的时候,实际上就是文中所说的USTA以
前使用的rating system, 是Skill based.
当你参加USTA联赛之后,你拥有的评级,就是目前使用的performance based system。
我们经常把skill 和 performance混淆。

http://library.hsh.com/read_article-hsh.asp?row_id=85
The questions are simple enough: What's going on with mortgage rates?
What makes them rise, or fall? Is it the Fed? The economy? Inflation?
The banks? The President? Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac? Is it a secret
conspiracy?
The answer is that rates are moved by a number of related factors, and
believe it or not, you -- Joe or Jane Consumer -- are one of those
factors.
Mortgage money can come from many sources, including deposits at banks

Amy Hoak is a MarketWatch reporter based in Chicago.
As world events dominated the news in recent weeks, mortgage rates enjoyed a
reprieve from a climb that began late last year, keeping the 30-year fixed-
rate mortgage down below 5% at the start of what is traditionally the home
buying and selling season.
While multiple factors move mortgage rates and it's impossible to pinpoint
the exact reason why they're up or down, we do know this: The tsunami and

When you're exercising in your target heart rate zone, you'll get the most
benefits of your running, or other cardiovascular activity. Your target
heart rate is 50-85% of your maximum heart rate. Knowing your target heart
rate helps you pace properly for different types of runs, and keeps you from

In the 1980s, nobody could imagine a mortgage rate below 10%. In the 1990s,

not to overreact when the central bank starts pulling back on its $85

it won’t mean that the Fed is anywhere near raising short-term interest

Here's how we set that composite rate:
Fixed rate 0.00%
Inflation rate -0.80%
Composite rate = [fixed rate + (2 x inflation rate) + (fixed rate x
inflation rate)] [0.0000 + (2 x -0.0080) + (0.0000 x -0.0080)]
Composite rate [0.0000 + -0.0160 + 0.0000000]

来自主题: Living版 - 问个锁定rate的问题
说实话没什么好办法,broker手上不是只有一个客人,基本没可能每天向所有客人通报
rate。而且市场变化也没有什么一定之规,有时候市场一旦变差,investor立刻就
freeze他们的rate lock table,就只能等新的rate出来之后才能知道rate变成什么样
了。而当市场转好的时候,通常investor revise rate都不积极,多数情况下只能等第
二天的rate出来才知道是否真的变好了。
以我的经验,我会先跟客人沟通,了解一下客人对rate的期望,我也会告诉客人最晚哪
天需要锁rate。如果在这期间,rate能达到客人的期望,我是会立刻打电话给客人问是
否愿意锁rate的,毕竟锁了rate大家都省心。
比如说,15年固定利率,对于purchase来说最近基本都在4%左右,如果确立的目标是4%
可以接受,最好是3.875%,那么还是有希望达到的。但如果一心只想着3.75%或3.625%
,那么在最近的这些日子里确实很难接到broker的电话说可以锁rate,因为这个月大概
还没有能做到的时候。

来自主题: Living版 - low rate and close date
rate lock是有期限的,一般分15天,30天,45天,和60天。loan 必须在rate lock有
效期内完成funding。对银行来说rate lock的有效期越长,风险越大,为了消除风险,
那么通常有效期越短rate越好。
不过,rate天天在变,同一天的rate里,有效期越短越好,但是,不同日子里的rate就
很难说了,相同的有效期,今天能锁到的,明天未必可以,后天有可能锁到更好的。
最好,客人自己有个心理预期,比较perfer多少的rate,然后让broker帮盯着,能做到
就锁。如果离close还有40多天,确实可以在观望一下。
这几周来,都是周五rate不错。但这谈不上是规律,通常来说银行为了规避周一可能产
生的风险,周五的rate都不会太好。不过,LZ可以关注一下rate,论坛里也有热心人天

从行为上看是符合银行规定的,呵呵,只不过broker解释的不太对而已。
在rate有效期内可以提出延利息,一旦过期了,就不是延利息的问题了,是relock的问
题。银行对relock是有规定的,在rate lock失效之后30天内,不允许lock更好的rate
,take the worse scenario,rate lock失效30天之后才能take按当时的市场毫无顾忌
地锁rate。
因此,rate lock失效2天之后确实无法延利息,broker没骗人;而目前市场好转,
broker可以relock原来的rate,只不过他告诉客人的是说把rate延期了,实际上是
relock;而要想锁更低的rate,需要rate lock失效30天之后,broker也没有骗人。

bond price 和 interest rate 反向。 interest rate 升, bond price 降, visa

会下降(in general,不论你的coupon是多少)。
theoretically, bond price 是所有的cashflow discount到present value的和,
discount rate取决于当前的interest rate,所以inerest rate升, 分母变大,price
变小。
所以interest rate升高,bond price会下降,这样bond的yield才会match risk free

看见有个帖子说上个window pass rate worst in 3 years.
不明白为什么? 是题目变男还是判分严了?REG的内容也没怎么变,反而通过率最低?

distance priority mail. See Link:

.
You need to use the special regional rate box to use this rate, which can be
ordered free online:

What will happen to tax rates in 2013? This is a question many American tax
payers will be asking through 2012 as the Presidential election heats up.
With the Obama-Bush tax cut extensions on income, capital-gains and estate
taxes set to expire on Dec. 31 2012, there will be a sharp rise in tax rates
for investors and those in higher income brackets during 2013. As the table
shows, the top tax rate will return to 39.6% (or 42% if you include
deduction phaseouts). Long term capital gains would be... 阅读全帖

我们在lock rate之后会发rate lock agreement,disclose GFE,如果rate比原来
application上的低了,还需要重新disclose TIL(Truth-in-Lending)。
因为客人都喜欢听到rate lock的消息,所以有些broker或是loan officer习惯于在一
开始就对客人说rate已经lock了,其实根本没lock,因为今年大体上rate很好,所以他
们这么做风险也不是很大。最近比较郁闷,有些时候没办法,只好说实话了。
还有人赌rate持续下降,报些超前的rate,吸引客人。结果客人跑来对我说,“你们公
司其他人怎么就能给我低的rate,还说能锁,你为什么不能。”好像我在骗人似的,郁
闷呀。。。

Higher unemployment rate dampens the hope of stock traders. As a result of
that, we see slight bounce back of the mortgage loan rates. Generally,
market information is still mixed as it will take more time for traders to
digest news of higher-than-expected unemployment rate.

来自主题: Living版 - Lock-in之后Mortgage rate能改吗?
换broker,换lender。不过,换了lender是不是rate一样靚也是未知数。
一般来说broker都是跟lender锁定的利息的,即便换了broker,再去锁同一个lender的
话,lender会知道是重复锁定。一般来说,lender不允许为同一个property address锁
多个rate的。而找其他lender的话,他们会从credit report中看出曾经在其他地方做
过,通常会让客人书面说明,确保没有其他债务,抑或多收点儿rate lock fee等。
改term也只能在同一张rate sheet里switch,就是说3天前锁的30年的30天的rate,今
天想换15年的program,也需要take 3天前的30天的rate。想从30天lock改成15天的
lock,不知道成不成,即便允许的话应该也只能按3天前的rate改。
而且,如果rate只跌了0.125%,没什么可argue的,没有investor会同意negotiate
rate,除非跌到0.375% or more。

broker用什么理由拖您呢?应该不会是他想多挣些吧,而且每天的rate不一样,明天15
天lock的price未必就比今天30天lock的price好。话说回来,15天的lock,确实有可能
比30天lock的rate低的。不过,如果broker offer出的rate是一样的,那就不一定要再
等了,如果多等三天可以拿到更低的rate,还是值得的。
可以跟broker商量,让其书面保证honor不高于现在30天lock的rate,有机会降低rate
就降之类的。
一般来说,如果客人坚持并且对rate满意,我是尊重客人锁rate的意愿的。一般都不会
把funding date房子rate lock的最后一天的,docs delivery 还需要时间呢。

Every consumer shops for mortgages and they should. But this is the critical
distinction: you should be shopping for the best mortgage advisor. If you
have that, you’ll get the best rate.
Here’s what happens when shoppers focused only on rate get quoted by a good
loan agent: Loan agent quotes a rate onl... 阅读全帖
