exploding ARM
 n.— «The man Bob Woodward called “Maestro” actually advised Americans to shun fixed-rate loans for adjustable-rate mortgages. Dubbed “exploding ARMs” to describe the impact of upwardly adjusting interest rates on monthly payments, the loans are a staple of subprime mortgages.» —“Who’s to blame for foreclosure crisis?” by Pat Beall Palm Beach Post (Florida) Oct. 21, 2007.
