Economic Statistics for 26 Mar 12

The following statistics were released today on the state of the US economy:

The Chicago Fed National Activity Index fell to -0.09, mainly on a drop in production. The weakest factors, though, remain consumption and housing.

The Pending Home Sales Index fell -0.5% in February, to a reading of 96.5. All of the earlier optimism about a housing recovery seems to have been scorched by all the bad readings for February.

Expansion has slowed in the Dallas Fed region according to the Dallas Fed Manufacturing Survey which fell to 10.8 from 17.8.
