Economic Events and Analysis
Looking Ahead: Week of July 21 through 25
US Calendar: This week's focus is on housing and manufacturing. Last week, housing starts and permits disappointed with unexpected declines. Existing and new home sales will indicate if this sector is rebounding or not. Also, home price gains have slowed and updates from FHFA and Case-Shiller could move markets. Manufacturing has been positive even as production softened in June after a May jump. This week's durables orders report will indicate which way momentum is headed.
