Could This Be The Trigger For The Crash?

Recommended Posts

NEW YORK – The bond market turned upside down this week in a move that may end up costing many people more to buy a home.
The phenomenon is called an inverted yield curve – when short term interest rates rise above long term rates –
and it hasn't happened for five years
. What it could mean is increased monthly costs for borrowers using ARMs, whose popularity, especially among first-time home buyers, has helped fuel the real estate boom.

My guess is that this will be the trigger over the pond and the UK tends to follow. Interesting times ahead for the worldwide housing bubble.
