jim paulson: Emergency Rate Cut By the Feds Puts Rate at 1.5%! - 10/08/08 01:52 AM
The Federal Reserve cut the key US interest rate by a full half point this AM.  Even China has cut their interest rates trying to stimulate their slowing economy.
Keep in mind that this rate is not directly tied to mortgage rates.  It does however have an immediate impact on short term money loans such as credit cards, home equity lines of credit, etc.
