Rates can't stay this low forever, can they?


Good question, many are starting to wonder.




Not FOREVER!
Well I don't think so but I will be dead and gone before then.

In the mean time, yes they can stay down for a few more years. Consider that not much has changed in the world since March 2009. The U.S. is still in denial and broke, and has been for about 20 + years. Greece, Spain and others are still in big doodoo and Japan is not doing great, just to name a few that are in the news almost every day presently.

Historically, these cycles last approximately 20 years. So rates will rise, before FOREVER, as part of the natural/normal cycle. It is not different this time. Humans are still involved!
