Today's Blurb Friday, May 20, 2016
 
 
          Existing Home Sales rose to a three month high, up 1.70% in April to a 5.45 Million annual rate (consensus +1.30% and 5.40 Million). Purchases advanced 4.90% YoY, and the median price of an existing home rose 6.30%, the highest since June 2015. Inventory of available properties dipped 3.60% YoY to 2.14 Million units. The housing industry has been more stable on the back of labor market tightening and persistently low borrowing costs. The rise in Existing Home Sales was led by sales in the Midwest, which jumped 12.10%. Treasuries continue to hover just below yesterday’s 2:00 PM (PT) close and the curve is slightly steeper with 2s10s up 0.2 bp.
