This decline of the spread suggests that the financial markets view the risk on mortgage debt as close to a "normal" state and that the private sector will buy up excess demand if yields rise. Consequently, the Fed is likely to phase out its program of buying up mortgages in the secondary market to keep rates low, leaving the private sector to fill the void. Mortgage rates are likely to rise in first or second quarter of 2010 as the Fed exits the mortgage market.
