Report Cover


July new home sales should remain at or slightly above 600K. Existing home sales should be little changed in July.


The key release in this light week will be Friday’s July Durable Goods Orders report. After soaring aircraft and vehicle orders boosted the June total, inevitable payback will hold down the July headline. Nonetheless, “core” non-defense capital good ex-aircraft orders should register an increase. Also this week, July New and Existing Home Sales on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively, should show the sector holding steady.
