Data on new home sales have disappointed
In October, new home sales amounted to 563K against the expectations of 574K (-1.9%) in September. Probably, the peak of 654K in July was a turning point of the indicator in the medium term. The increase in mortgage rates will introduce the housing sector into the category of problem. In September the house prices increased by 0.6% while the mortgage rate was 3.6%.
This week the United States won’t present the important data, especially since today the Thanksgiving Day is celebrated in the US.
