Now is the time to refinance or buy a home. It sounds like interest rates will be increasing as early as next week.

With the U.S. prinitng press trying to stimulate the economy, I think the window is slwoly closing on this historically low interest rate environment. If things weren't so critically worse in Europe, there'd be much less demand for U.S. paper.  We are going to reach a tipping point before too much longer that will trigger an inflationary escalation of interest rates. Anyone have a crystal ball handy?
