Energy Information Agency - Natural Gas

Natural Gas Stores

Well, the information is out there... Looks like we are heading into that part of the year during which inventories begin to fall...

This week's report will be out tomorrow morning. On a side note, damn it's ugly out there! I mean Goldcorp (GG) under $17 bucks? Platinum in the $800's... As Joey Lawrence once said, "Whoa!"

Mortgage Bankers' Assoc. - Weekly

I was going through the Economic Calendar for tomorrow. I went to The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) website and began poking around the place. I found the most recent report. Then I went back to November 2004, and checked out that information...

Two quick observations I find interesting:

2004 - % of total loans that are ARM's ~35%
2008 - % of total loans that are ARM's ~3%

2008 - One Year ARM = ~6.6%
2008 - 30 Year Fixed = ~6.5%
