Are you encouraged by
the rise in U.S. new home sales in June?
Do you consider this
data to be a false positive?
“The fundamentals of
the economy are not good. We are not out of the woods. The weak dollar will
cause massive inflation and unemployment in the service sector. “
“I think this could be
the start of a long slow climb out of the recession.”
“Home sales are likely
to improve in summer as people relocate and get in place for children to start
school in August/September. If they still see improved sales in November and
December it cold be more promising.”
“I fully expect things
to get worse.”
“Ultimately, I am more concerned with job
growth in the manufacturing sector.”
“Prices are low, but the
jobless rate is high. People buying are retirees and first timers.”
“The economic conditions
are still ‘ify’ but most indicators are inching up little by little.”
