No big news means no change in the rates.

This was a quiet week for economic news, so rates remain the same. Next week, though, all eyes on the Fed (FOMC) meeting and their announcement Wednesday at 2ET whether they will raise the prime rate, along with their outlook for the rest of the year.

With all the turmoil in the world, I think they will leave things alone.

The markets also watch the Consumer Confidence number and the GDP number.

The big numbers are the following week: Friday monthly employment numbers. So stay tuned.
