Fed announced a third large purchase of bonds on Thursday in an effort to bring down long-term interest rates and spur growth. In addition, Fed said it intends to keep the benchmark short-term interest rate, the federal funds rate, at nearly zero until mid-2015. Fed said it would buy mortgage-backed securities at a pace of $40 billion per month. Unlike QE1 and QE2, no dollar amount or time-limit was placed on the program.

On August 31, 2012, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) announced that it has directed the Mortgage Government-Sponsored Enterprises (GSEs) to increase Guarantee Fees (G-Fees) effective November 1, 2012, which means mortgages closed after 11/1/2012 will be subject to higher G-Fees in result of higher rate.
