Latest Release
Sep 26, 2016
New Home Sales measures the annualized number of new single-family homes that were sold during the previous month. This report tends to have more impact when it's released ahead of Existing Home Sales because the reports are tightly correlated.

A higher than expected reading should be taken as positive/bullish for the USD, while a lower than expected reading should be taken as negative/bearish for the USD.

It looks like we are finally getting up to speed with building houses... Demand is strong with millenials purchasing new homes... Number of available existing homes are on the rise..... Good news all around... I think we are at a point where demand and supply will likely stabilize and price will not continue to rise....
