A Credit Crunch is Coming

Wall Street is loosing its appetite for sub-prime, no doc loans and other exotic types of mortgages.

The force at work is the increasing demand from investment banks for lenders to buy back the loans due to borrowers' failure to make their first few payments on those loans.
