Notice how the purchase applications hit a 9 year low and yet interest rates are available at historic lows. Tells you how strapped the consumer is

Prices continue to probe the neckline of a reverse head and shoulders pattern but we will need the market to close at or below 3.45% to keep rally hopes alive. The auction will be key to our short term direction. Notice how the purchase applications hit a 9 year low and yet interest rates are available in the 4.875% range.

The number were a bit better than consensus, showing signs of stability creeping back into the housing market. 17 of the 20 market surveyed showed positive price improvement with Charlotte, Las Vegas, and Cleveland the only decliners. Although the numbers are good, uncertainty with the 8K stimulus plan and continued high unemployment will need to be monitored.
