Free Markets, Free People

Economic Statistics for 20 Oct 15

A light week of economic stats starts with the Housing Market index, which rose 2 points to 64 in October.

September housing starts rose a much stronger than expected 6.5% to a 1.206 annual rate, but permits were weak, falling -5.0% to 1.103 million, annualized. 

Redbook reports that last week’s retail sales improved to 1.3% on a year-ago basis, from the previous week’s 1.1%. Still weak, though.
